Design Elements and Principles

As part of Visual Communication Design Unit 1: Area of study 2: Design Elements and Design Principles, students at McKinnon Secondary College created a 16-panel concertina brochure based on each of the eight Elements of Design and the eight Principles of Design.

Students were required to choose either flora or fauna as their overall source of inspiration and they also were required to draw on the influence of artist Charlie Harper in at least two of their panels.

Students undertook numerous trials of media and compositions in their visual diaries before completing their final concertina panels. They were encouraged to use a range of media such as pencil, pastel, collage, digital applications, watercolour and markers to demonstrate a broad range of skills.

For the “Type” panel, most students used Adobe Illustrator.
