Design Elements: Texture


What a tangled web we weave ...



1 Will an overall texture help to convey the idea of your design? Will texture be used to fill individual shapes or other portions of the design?

2 Have you considered the textures that surround you in everyday life? Will any of these textures strengthen your design?

3 Even if texture is not to be added graphically to your design, what role will be played by the texture of the visual components you use? E.g., film grain, video noise, image pixelation, etc.

4 Will you use artwork, in the form of a photograph or illustration, that conveys a feeling of texture?

5 Do the textures you've chosen to use support or overwhelm the concept of your piece? Is the texture in your piece an integrated part of the concept or does it feet added on at the last minute?
