D2L Assignment 1 (worth 10 points) The topic of this post is based on Chapter 1. Before preparing your submission, it is important that you read the chapter thoroughly since your input should be based on your understanding of the chapter. You are required to refer to specific page numbers and concepts in the book (example, p.9) to show that you are using the reading to make your point. Please check your work for spelling and grammar —points will be docked for errors. Also, points will be deducted if you do not refer to specific elements (with the page number) from the reading to drive home your point. Lastly, each one of your three responses should below the corresponding question (in other words, the answer should be low the question). That way, I will know which specific question number you are responding to. Your Name: Mikayla Schultz 1. Browse the Internet and find, copy and paste an example of a graphic design that you believe has gone out of style. (4 points) 2. Then based on design concepts in Chapter 1, give three reasons you believe, based on the readings, that the design has gone out of style? (3 points) This graphic design has gone out of style because it doesn’t contain any visual language that is heavily used in modern design. Visual culture is popular in today’s designs because it is universal around the world and also conveys the ad’s message or purpose easily and effectively. Furthermore, this ad’s form and function are both poor (form being the aesthetic aspect of a design and function being the effectiveness, p.2). By looking at this design it is unclear what the focus is and does not posses modern aesthetic style. Finally, the design is too busy. (Negative space, p.6) is crucial building block used in modern day graphic design in order to keep it simple and easy to find the focus of the page. 3. In your own words, explain the difference between form and function. Give an example to illustrate your point. (3 points) The difference between form and function is that form is the aesthetics of a design, whereas function is its usefulness or effectiveness. Although form is important in order to capture attention, the function is the actual job of the design. Instead of just creating a beautiful piece of art, a graphic designer must convey the information in a way that is easy to understand and find. The viewer shouldn’t have to search for the information within the design, it should be unavoidable to the eye. With that in mind, form still comes in close second because information laid out in straight lines across a blank page would be boring and wouldn't evoke any emotion or interest, like the example below.
