Student Design

I had the opportunity to meet with Shallah Jones in my Type & Media course. Shallah  is a great artiest who is more into Raster & Vector design. I like all his post on instagram (rv_jones_f) and I think it will be a great idea took take a look at his amazing work he’ve done.


Frame & Scale

By placing the frame that made over the original composition, I took a close picture of it and was surprised. I tried many different angles to see the many different views that I could get from just one composition. The last two composition was easy to tell weather that had a black or white figure ground. The two first compositions was on track, looks or could confuse the eye and mind on trying to figure out which color is the fore ground or the background of composition. In fact, it is very important to know which one is which because frame is used to unify, organize or separate something to show its purpose. As for all stable, reversed, and ambiguous figure ground that I had in my  composition,  show as a whole size even by comparing the scale and its affections size relationship.

“This is my favorite perk so far. It is a great opportunity for new student to experience new ideas in the outside world, especially for those who still undecided on what their major is.”
