My favorite design principle would be movement. I chose movement because this principle catches the audience eye and it doesn’t have them stuck on one part of the image. It keeps the eyes moving so they can see the full visual piece. As an example, the image that I’m showing makes you look at the picture all around. The organic shapes makes the design flow very nicely.

3 Subway Platform Photos

The man is the first thing you see in this photo. The words on the top left corner is the second thing you see. The words on the bottom come last.

The astronaut with the hand is what caught my attention first. Then the title “LIFE” came second. The quote on the top came third.

The first thing you see in this advertisement is the photo right in the center. Then you realize the flag after. You see the title on the top next and then the bold white words after. The words on the bottom come last.

My 3 Favorite Contrast Images

Matt Flynn 002

        All three images have contrast in them. I loved this images because of the color contrast they show. The third one was my all time favorite because the contrast is so simple, but it made the image look really nice. I also love the second one because the lighter contrast overlaps with the black color, so it makes it look like positive and negative contrast. It also makes the dog stand out, all though he is the same color as the figure-ground.  The first image that I put shows more then one type of contrast which makes the image pop. It has shape contrast, along with color contrast. But even though there’s more then one contrast, the image comes together very nicely.
