To familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of visual design, scan the “20 most important design principles illustrated.

Read through AND KNOW the rationale for 01. Line; 09. Balance; 11. Contrast; 15. Direction; and 20. Composition.  This requires you to scroll down the webpage to find each specific principle.

After having read the assigned zines for this class meeting, look for the workings of the above (5) principles in the two paper zines I distributed in class.

Come to class ready to present an example of some of these visual principles in the (2) paper zines.
