The Non-Designer’s Design Book: Repetition and Contrast

Posted by

I’ve always been a big fan of contrast in design, and enjoyed Williams’ tutorial on this. It reminded me of my days as a yearbook editor in high school, which, while traumatizing, gave me the chance to do a bit of experimenting with design elements like this. However, I think sometimes his examples looked really crowded. I’m a fan of contrast in a more minimalist fashion, like the star wars posters. Having more than two types of font on one page, to me, is a terrible idea.

I had never really thought about repetition, however, and how influential it can be in design. I found Williams’ examples really interesting, and the importance of being visually consistent in a piece was something that stood out for me. I think that’s something I can struggle with, so it was helpful seeing his examples.
