Good Form – Viewpoints of the 3D object

Here’s a good compositional design exercise with only one pictorial element to consider.

This was a quick exercise in creating the composition of a form within a frame. Here the frame is used as a visual device to create different interpretations of the form, acting as a reference to the subject, allowing aspects such as size and position to be brought to the design.

I first mapped out the general structure/form of a 3d object, a large plastic bottle, by drawing loosely in pencil, from different viewpoints. Then. positioned the form within the frame to:

1.Make it look small/insignificant

2.Create an abstract design

3.Create a dynamic interplay between positive & negative space

4.Give a feeling of immense size/weight

This thinking plays a part in most design projects whether it is image or type.
