Shapes : in Grphics Designing

Combining shapes and/or lines they can convey universal meanings and guide the eye.

Shapes can help us to
  • Organize, connect, separate
  • Symbolize an idea
  • Show movement
  • Convey an emotion
  • Emphasize something
There are three basic types of shapes

  • Geometric (squares, circles, and triangles , octagons, hexagons, cones)
  • Natural (trees, people)
  • Abstract (symbols, sunrays, road signs)
Natural shapes are often irregular and fluid.
