Principles and Elements of Design (17 Apr 2006)
My first three Design in Theory and Practice columns investigated the fundamental concepts underlying the design profession. These concepts come in a variety of forms, from abstract tenets and objects used to construct a composition to constraints based on the medium in which we choose to design.
With this article we put everything together, and looked at how the fundamentals relate specifically to Web site design. We looked at how the principles and elements can be used to create various Web design compositions, and how the constraints of the Web invoke unique and differing designs.Add this article to Del.icio.us
