Originally when I decided on a theme, I chose a simple, one color background because it was my favorite color. When we talked about Tumblr in class, I thought about what my tumblr said about me. It said nothing before. Now, it says that I’m the type of person who likes happy things. My theme emotes happiness, at least in my eyes. When I see naturally beautiful things, I think that is when I’m my happiest. Happiness is the most beautiful thing in the world.
This short chapter was helpful already because it taught the very basic of the basic. For those of us who have no design experience, but will need it in the future, the basics are the first step. Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity are words that will guide us through the learning process in this class and hopefully land us in a place where we feel comfortable designing and using our own creativity to create something beautiful.
