About this Course
In this course, you'll build your design vocabulary and learn how to describe the basic building blocks of any visual image. We'll start by learning about the elements of design, like line, shape, and form. Then we'll move on to the principles of design, like balance, harmony, and movement. By the end, you'll have a better foundation for discussing design with other team members and you'll be able to make objective observations about what is often subjective subject matter.
What you'll learn
