Step No.1:

ELEMENTS OF ART WITH PATTERN GRID EXERCISE IN SKETCHBOOK 

EOA grid exercise

Create a grid in your sketchbook with 4 x 5 (H x W) spaces and choose 4 out of the following:

a. LINE

b. SHAPE

c. TEXTURE

d. FORM

e. SPACE

Student Examples:

Then create PATTERNS with the Elements of Art. You should have 4 different patterns for each Element of Art you chose. Remember: these are sketches for the patterns you are using in your 2-D Design and each pattern is a part of a whole artwork that should represent you. So don’t waste your time with patterns you do not want to use in your work. Craftsmanship should be high quality!

Step No.3:

COMPOSITION THUMBNAILS AND FONTS/LETTERING IN SKETCHBOOK

 Create 4 thumbnail sketches of possible designs. Some things to think about as you sketch:

a. Do you want your design to be horizontal or vertical?

b. What are the majority of your patterns? Are they more organic and free-flowing or more geometric and hard-edged?

Student Examples:

Draw 2-3 examples of your name or the 5 characters you are using in your design with different fonts/lettering.

Remember your name/characters cannot be simple line because it will not pop out of your patterns properly.
