Common Sense and Aesthetics

24 Apr

A person can take idea about aesthetics through basic points that aesthetic is all about artwork that may be good or bad or at least better than others. However conversely, today it has changed the thinking and style of work of philosophers. Aesthetics have benefited scientists, feminists, designers, and other related fields such as history, literature, and debating.

It is quite obvious that common sense of people about art and aesthetics is not yet cleared as many important and confusing issues in the philosophy of art and aesthetics are still there to be addressed. However, people’s belief about the aesthetics value can be justified.

In the following lines, the idea and common concept of aesthetic, the important connection of aesthetic justification and connection that exists between concept of learning and understanding are explained. These learning ideas provide better understanding of aesthetic beliefs.

There are a lot of branches of aesthetics. Each of which has its own principles, rules, and traditions. There are some aesthetic branches that teach about garden designing, while others teach about how to make things appear perfect to be successful. In countries like America and China, aesthetical study has done a lot of practical work in form of art. Many philosophers and intelligent people enhance practical field with the help of aesthetics.

There are two elements of internal form of aesthetics. One element is concerned to the quality of work that has been done in aesthetics, whereas the other is concerned to the professional visions. An image is usually composed optimistically for the quality work. There are some authors that have done a contemporary aesthetics work, which has some specialties such as Goodman and Danto Stanley Cavell. These influential characters of authors have major impacts on the field, especially in the field of aesthetics. The best three impacts are as follows:

  1. The first impact is given by the philosopher of art, Roughly, at the end of 1970s. He had a wide range of topics on painting, photography, music, film, dance, and literature. Today, modern philosophers of science who have an abundance of knowledge and information about science and aesthetics are now greatly interested in modern art. As compared to the past, now aesthetics are implicated in practice of art criticism and are having the benefit of close fields like literature, history, film-making study, etc.
  2. The second impact is about feminist, which is also very important. The influence of feminist works in aesthetics can be seen evidently all over the world. The discovery that offered aesthetics standard is everlasting and worldwide.
  3. Third and the last impact is that aesthetics have worked in “ethical turn”. It has not only benefited in restoring long-lasting debates about the moral function of description but also formed a social impact of the art. Today, many people agree with the attractive and useful field of aesthetics.

Principles of Graphic Design

6 Nov

An effective graphic design is not created randomly or by chance. Instead, an excellent graphic design follows some design principles that help in its success. These principles consist of conceptual ideas that help out graphic designers in making great designs.

Here are the important principles of graphic design.
1.      Balance:
Formal, radial, symmetrical, and informal ways of arranging components on a page to get visual balance is the most important principle of graphic design. It also covers the ‘rule of thirds’ and other structural components. Balance gives a design equilibrium and stability as it share out visual “weight” throughout space making the design appear fluid rather than uneven or weighty.

2.      Proximity:
The proximity principle states that related items should be grouped together to create unity. Similarly, unlike items should not be close to each other.  Proximity creates a bond between components on a page. A relationship or a lack of relationship, between components is suggested by how close together or far apart they are placed. A third component is used to connect distant parts to achieve unity.

3.      Alignment:
Although centered text has its own place, it is sometimes the sign of a beginner designer. Having proper understanding of aligning text and graphics is important in creating more dynamic, interesting, or appropriate layouts. If there is a lack of alignment then it creates a sloppy and unorganized look. Also, combining several alignments have a similar effect. But alignment can be broken in order to serve a particular purpose such as to deliberately create tension or draw attention to a particular component on the page.

Items in simple layouts can be aligned by using the automatic align options in the software, whereas the precise placement of components in the complicated layouts can be aligned by using the guidelines and grids.

4.      Repetition/Consistency:
The principle of repetition or consistency states that design components should be repeated throughout the entire page. These components include a font style, line, graphic, colors, icons, and so on. Use repetition to create a consistent and balanced look through various types of repetition.

5.      Contrast:
The principle of contrast states that if two components are not the same then make them very different. Contrast is used to add visual interest to your page. You can create visual interest by using color, size and weight, or any other property of a component. Moreover, you can use style sheets to make this simpler by locating contrasting values for heading font and paragraph font.

6.      White space:
Another important principle of graphic design is white space, which is mostly missing from the page layouts of many beginners. White space is the art of nothing that should be learned. It is the absence of text and graphics. It gives visual breathing room for the eye as white space make a page less confusing, cramped, or overwhelming.

If used correctly in a balanced way, these principles of graphic design are the keys to an effective and elegant design. And any perfect design can successfully deliver its message in a dynamic way.
