New and improved Elements and Principles of Design icons





Here are my new updated elements & principles of design sheets. I've added a few terms from the ministry documents that were missing on the original and I changed the icon. 

I've had some requests to share these in higher resolution, so I've added the pdfs to Google Drive, please download them to use for educational purposes:



I have high-quality prints of these charts available for purchase here:



Enjoy!

  6. This is a great tool for scrapbooking with the use of the design principles and elements. It really helps to pull my pages together and help tell my story. Thanks so much.

  7. Hi Pat,
    I'd love to use these with my Visual Composition class here in Calgary. I've never seen a more concise way of getting these concepts across. Do you mind if I use them. I'd like to make some blank ones as well and introduce them and allow my students to create their own icons as you have.
    Thanks,

    Todd

    1. Hi Todd,

      thanks, I hope they work well for you! I used the same approach this fall with the blank forms that the students fill out with their own logos and it was great.

      Cheers,
      Pat

  10. Thank you for these helpful sheets. I was about to make my own for my class at Kansas City Art Institute when I did a search and found yours. Just what I was looking for and already beautifully designed. SR

  11. Thank you for sharing, Pat. You have inspired me to create something similar, specific to photography, with little mini images to show the concept.

  12. Hi! Nicely done sheets! It is great to pair such strong visuals with a concise and understandable definition. May I please use your sheets (with attribution) in my HS Graphic design classes? New to this relatively, and it is so well done- your generosity saves me some aggravation- and valuable time!!

  18. I would love to have folks trying to assess student artwork try these out. They are fantastic. It is in a museum setting and would, if it’s all right, be part of a wider array of assessment tools within the protocol.


    Thanks.

  19. These are fantastic! The best Elements and Principles infographic I've seen. And I think it's just wonderful that you've shared PDF files so that we can print and use them in our classrooms. So many people are so darn worried about getting credit, that we can't use the useful infographics that they've created to help our student understand and create art! In other words...you're awesome!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! I totally agree- it's more important that solid resources get shared and actually used in classrooms than worrying about credit! Cheers!
