Inside the Designer’s Mind by Sakia, An Artist at Lapel Pins R Us

At Lapel Pins R Us, we have highly skilled artists that work on making customized pins just for you!   One principle our artists keep in mind when creating artwork for you is the basic rules of design: Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, and Proximity.

CONTRAST

Contrast simply means difference. It is what you notice, and what gives design its energy.

REPETITION

The principle of repetition simply means reusing the same or similar elements.  It brings a sense of unity, consistency, and cohesiveness to the design.

ALIGNMENT

Alignment deals with the placement of elements. Its objective is for every element to be connected visually and not randomly scattered.  This helps make the design visually attractive and professional looking.

PROXIMITY

Last of all, proximity is about moving things closer or farther apart to achieve a more organized look. Simply, it is grouping similar items together for visual impact and organization.  Spatially, it is important to pay attention to proximity when creating artwork for a lapel pin design.

When putting together a complex design, artists like Sakia abide by these rules.  This helps her achieve everything she sets out to do creatively when given a lapel pin idea or concept to design.  If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be inside the mind of a designer, this blog will be of interest to you.
