Many artists limit their presence in the web because of this situation which prevents them from getting more exposure about their works or getting opportunities in a wide market that connect artists and customers from around the world. Actually, I doubt that any artist would like to share work in one of these creative social networks such as Deviant Art and Behance that allows you to upload your artwork and get feedback and criticism. These networks fuel the creative industry by sharing ideas and getting inspiration which are one of the most important
The first class describes the 5 elements of design: lines, shapes, mass, texture, and color. Also describes other elements sometimes included as basic building blocks.
Everyone knows what a line is, right? Look more closely at the great variety of lines, straight, curved, thick, thin, solid, and not-solid.
Squares (and rectangles), triangles, and circles are the three basic shapes. Examine their role in design including the psychology of shapes in logo design. Class also touches on freeform shapes.
How big is it? Take a look at mass or visual weight of graphic and text elements. This class includes a large section on size and measurements for type and paper and images.
In addition to the actual texture of the paper we print on, look at the textures we create through techniques such as embossing and the visual texture created with certain graphics techniques.
What is the meaning of red? Which colors go well together? Color symbolism and association is the primary focus of this class. It also touches briefly on the mechanics of color reproduction on the Web and in print.
- giving faces to characters in a story
- displaying a number of examples of an item described in an academic textbook (e.g. A Typology)
- visualizing step-wise sets of instructions in a technical manual

The difference between word processors and desktop publishing is becoming blurred with the introduction of full-featured word processors that support advanced graphics and layout capabilities. In general, desktop publishing systems give you greater control over the layout of your document.
1. Do-it-yourself desktop publishing can save money.
2. In this you have all the control over your final product.
3. It is easy to make changes.
4. It gives you more ways to effectively communicate ideas.
One of the biggest disadvantages of desktop publishing is upgrading software. Now a days in desktop publishing there are three types of software we are using it’s Photoshop, CorelDraw and Page Maker. But when we are talking about new software then In design is the latest software which overtake Page Maker and there are a lot of latest version in Photoshop like 7, 9, 10, 11, 13 etc. which is upgrading very quickly. And generally professional people use this latest version to create a latest and attractive graphics and advertisement.
2. A strong work moral.
3. The ability to pay attention to detail and work independently.
4. Good eyesight, including visual acuity.
5. Focus for your work.

Balance is the concept of visual equilibrium, and relates to our physical sense of balance.
Gradation of size and direction produce linear perspective. Gradation of color from warm to cool and tone from dark to light produce aerial perspective. Gradation can add interest and movement to a shape. A gradation from dark to light will cause the eye to move along a shape.
Repetition with variation is interesting, without variation repetition can become monotonous.
Contrast is the juxtaposition of opposing elements eg. opposite colours on the colour wheel - red / green, blue / orange etc. Contrast in tone or value - light / dark. Contrast in direction - horizontal / vertical.
The major contrast in a painting should be located at the center of interest. Too much contrast scattered throughout a painting can destroy unity and make a work difficult to look at. Unless a feeling of chaos and confusion are what you are seeking, it is a good idea to carefully consider where to place your areas of maximum contrast.
Harmony in painting is the visually satisfying effect of combining similar, related elements. eg.adjacent colours on the colour wheel, similar shapes etc.
Dominance gives a painting interest, counteracting confusion and monotony. Dominance can be applied to one or more of the elements to give emphasis
Relating the design elements to the idea being expressed in a painting reinforces the principal of unity.eg. a painting with an active aggressive subject would work better with a dominant oblique direction, course, rough texture, angular lines etc. whereas a quiet passive subject would benefit from horizontal lines, soft texture and less tonal contrast.
Definition of Colour
The Concise Oxford Dictionary describes color as “sensation produced on eye by rays of light when resolved as by prism into different wavelengths; one, or any mixture, of the constituents into which light can be separated as in a spectrum or rainbow.” The Collins Gem Dictionary says, “Appearance of things as a result of reflecting light.”
The McGraw Hill Dictionary of scientific and technical terms describes color as, “general term that refers to the wavelength composition of light, with particular reference to its visual appearance.”
Merriam Webster Dictionary defines color as,
From these definitions it is clear that for a human eye as well as its brain and mind to perceive color, light is essential.
Sir Isaac Newton, the renowned English scientist, in the year 1622 AD, conducted an experiment in which he used a prism and directed light through it. The result was the appearance of seven colors, which he called a color spectrum.
This color classification of Newton is relevant even today. The color spectrum he had arrived at is akin to the color spectrum of a rainbow. The light is radiant but a visible energy of electromagnetic wave motion, which moves through space at an incredible speed of 186,000 miles per second. Like X-rays, or, radio signals it is transmitted through electric vibrations and magnetic fields, though, of course, at different frequencies. It moves in waves and the measure for lights wavelength is Angstrom Units (AU).
Red, Blue and Yellow are considered the primary colors because they are pure colors, which are beyond production by mixing other colors. Since we can arrive at any color by mixing these three colors in different proportions, these are rightly identified as primary colors.
If we mix two primary colors in equal parts, we get the secondary colors viz., violet, green and orange. (violet = blue + red, green = blue + yellow, orange = yellow + red).
By mixing a primary color and a secondary color in equal proportion, we get tertiary colors.
The Colour Spectrum
Blue-Violet 75% / 25% mix of Blue and Red
Violet 50%/50% mix of Blue and Red
Red-Violet 25% / 75% mix of Blue and Red
Red-Orange 75% / 25% mix of Red and Yellow
Orange 50%/50% mix of Red and Yellow
Yellow-Orange 25% / 75% mix of Red and Yellow
Yellow-Green 75% / 25% mix of Yellow and Blue
Green 50%/50% mix Yellow and Blue
Blue-Green 25% / 75% mix of Yellow and Blue
- Psychological complements: hues that are opposite experiences e.g. unique yellow and unique blue, unique red and unique green.
- Additive complements: hues of lights that mix to make white light e.g. “Monitor Yellow” and “Monitor Blue” (deep violet-blue), “Monitor Red” and “Monitor Cyan”, “Monitor Green” and “Monitor Magenta”..
- Pigmentary complements: hues of artists pigments that mix to give black or grey, e.g. yellow and violet, scarlet and blue, crimson/”magenta” and green.
