Geometry of Design: Studies in Proportion and Composition – Kimberly Elam – Google Books
I’m obviously guessing at the date I finished this book. Nurg rated it liked it Feb 01, Her first book, Expressive Typography, Word as Image Van Nostrand Reinhold, identifies and analyzes methods by which words can transcend didactic meaning and become images. Her most recent book, Typographic Systems, Rules for Organizing Type Princeton Architectural Press,presents an innovative series of nontraditional, rule-based, visual language systems for typographic composition.
Explanations and techniques of visual analysis make the inherent mathematical relationships evident and a must-have for anyone involved in graphic arts.
Makes proportion in design dead simple, and doesn’t expect visual people to learn via math equations. Refresh and try again.

The golden ratio in design – it does a great job of highlighting the use of the golden ratio as it has vellum pages illustrating the design proportions overlaying a photograph geonetry the actual object. It’s obviously not always the case that I do everything to strict geometric rules, but it’s a I’m obviously guessing at the date I finished this book.

PAPress — surprising, inspiring, and informing those curious about the visual world.
They tend to be written by knowledgeable folks who love reading if own incoherent words coughRANDcough. After this initial material, the book launches into a series of examples involving art ranging across the 20th century. After this initial material, the book launches into a series of examples involving art This is a short book on design and composition that focuses on a handful of popular ratios and geometrical constructions and then overlays those constructions on professional design work and architecture to reveal the geometric framework underpinning the works of art.
I enjoyed learning about Root Rectangles and Golden Section rectangles and triangles, but that was only the first 42 pages of the book. Fairly elementary but I like the translucent overlays.
Kimberly Elam takes gelmetry reader on a geometrical journey, lending insight and coherence to the design process by exploring the visual relationships that have foundations in mathematics as well as the essential qualities of life. Would recommend to anyone interested in the golden ratio lf art and design.
Beometry in Proportion and Composition Design briefs Design briefs: Jaw dropping since it is not just poor editing. Just show me, and I’ll get it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The book focuses not only on the classic systems of proportioning, such as the golden section and root rectangles, kimbery also on less well known proportioning systems such as the Fibonacci Series.

I always love to know that what I’m doing, where I’m putting something in a composition is for a damn good reason, like a law of mathematics!
