Join Dave Schultze for an in-depth discussion in this video Rhythm and repetition, part of Design Foundation 3D: Shape and Form.
- When we talk about rhythm and repetition…in design, the definition is simple.…We are describing elements that repeat.…Ideally, they are organized to create…pleasing rhythms, but they should also…make sense within the project's desired goals.…Repetition is the easy part.…Establishing a rhythm that engages…the user is the hard part.…In painting, we have this surreal scene…by René Magritte called Golconda.…It utilizes repetition, as well as perspective,…to create an engaging and strange scene.…
Magritte excelled in creating accurate paintings…of events that could just never happen,…just to get your attention.…Are the men in bowler hats falling,…floating, or going up?…Exactly.…In the 1960's, Andy Warhol was a…major figure in U.S. pop art.…This movement challenged fine art…by incorporating elements of the…current pop culture, including comics and advertising.…Warhol used repetition in many of his works,…including this example titled, Marilyn Diptych.…If you don't recognize this image, then surely…you've seen some of this delicious Campbell's Soup work.…
First, see how the same idea can be applied in a smaller 2D scale—like graphics and print, fine art, and advertising. Dave then blows it up in 3D, and showcases examples from product design, furniture, architecture, and urban planning.
Projects and concepts are presented in an engaging and sometimes irreverent manner with images, videos, and personal and professional stories from Dave. Check out this fast-paced tour as it covers topics ranging from grids and axes to designing with humor.
