Elements of design


Our first topic for the year is an investigation of the elements and principles of design.

Elements are the components in the design: line, shape, space, texture, value and colour.

Principles are the way in which these are brought together.

We have some notes, and we will also watch the following video in class. You might benefit from watching this video again as you complete the assigned work.

You can download a fresh copy of the notes here.

Your homework task is to prepare a mind map on the elements of design. If you haven’t used a mind map before download some notes to assist you here.

To get you started:

elements mindmap

Now continue the mind map with the information in the video and the notes. We will expand this mind map as we investigate the elements further. You may use any method to produce your mind map, but the software I have used can be downloaded at
