How to Introduce Large Medium and Small Design Elements to the Overall Design to Achieve Depth and More Detailed Result
in this lesson, I want to talk about the concept of large medium and small elements in design and how that applied to this part of the process. When you have a clear variation of large medium and small elements in the composition, overall design will become more effective to create a good hierarchy and create a good sense of depth in the image. For example, if you see same shape three times, then this will become just a simple repetitive design. When you have a good variation in sight, then the repetition of the square also become a movement or it will express the sense of depth. So in this part of the process, it is important to look at the design as variety of sizes of elements. For example, this will be rather larger elements and this will be the medium elements and we also have these smaller elements. This type of good variety is really important for this type of image. So for example, this particular shape is becoming closer to the medium size. So I want to make sure that it will ...
be smaller and sometimes you want to repeat the similar design. And when you do that, it is important to make a size variation even though you are using the exact same shapes that way, it doesn't look so much of a repetition, but it will create a hierarchy in effective composition. I'm looking at these elements right here and this part is exactly the same size as these ones. So in this case it's probably a good idea to create a hierarchy by changing the size variation and by doing this, even though I am using the same shapes, same design, but just because of the the size difference, it makes it much more effective in hierarchy and in design overall. And also as we move along, we started with larger elements and getting into details. And when you create the detail area, make sure that you are adding smaller elements so that the detail doesn't compete with the overall design. As you can see, the idea is extremely important. Especially we will have a lot of similar elements such as squares, circles, triangles and so on. If we don't create the distinctive size difference in similar elements, it will look just like simple repetition or overall design will look flat and also not just single elements in the design, but the overall design element. In this case we have this area for the main character and we can think of this as a large element and the type or the title area could be the medium area and we will have much smaller, secondary type or information area and that could be considered to be small. So now, as a overall design, we achieve large in medium and small, which is really helpful for this particular composition and achieving the hierarchy. So you get the idea, it makes a huge difference. Yet technically this is easy to do the important thing here is not just three different sizes. You can have more than three categories. The important thing is to have good size variation in the composition.
