ASSIGNMENT 06 PART II: VISUAL TEXTURE
Visual Texture: Visual textures are generated by utilizing variations in color and value; the result does not represent a physical surface or anything recognizable. Instead, visual textures appeal to our sense of sight and provide visual variety and interest.
Pattern: Pattern refers to the systematic recurrence of a motif, which is repeated and organized over a portion of a design. These repeated elements are psychologically grouped together by the viewer, creating the impression of a larger, unified area with particular visual texture.
Expermiment with applying visual texture to the name design that you created.
(1) Invent 10 different textures in your sketchbook using some of the following adjectives to prompt the character of the textures: sparse, light, loud, smooth, heavy, quiet, soft, wild, rhythmic, course, connected, random, dense, hard.
(2) Use one or more of the textures to emphasize patterns within your name design. Practice on the spare modules that are left over from your project; if you like the effect, draw the textures directly onto your design or photocopy more modules and collage them to your design. Please see the image below for examples of invented visual textures.
Please place your library of 10 textures into your portfolio. I will look at this during your mid-term portfolio review.
Please see examples of visual textures below. You are not creating a recognizable image, but looking at the textures in the squares below should give you a good idea of how to go about inventing textures.
