1 00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:05,020 In this video, you'll learn the importance of size and texture in design. 2 00:00:05,020 --> 00:00:06,800 Let's get started. 3 00:00:08,039 --> 00:00:11,200 Size is the quality of primary visual elements, 4 00:00:11,200 --> 00:00:14,200 which we just went overâ€”line and shape. 5 00:00:14,200 --> 00:00:17,300 All elements have a definitive size, 6 00:00:17,300 --> 00:00:19,870 which is its measurable form. 7 00:00:19,870 --> 00:00:23,370 Scale is the difference between 2 objects 8 00:00:23,370 --> 00:00:26,480 or in comparison to a standard. 9 00:00:26,480 --> 00:00:30,360 Scale allows us to indicate if something is too small 10 00:00:30,360 --> 00:00:31,890 or too large. 11 00:00:31,890 --> 00:00:35,790 If we're referring to the harmony of 2 objects in comparison, 12 00:00:35,790 --> 00:00:38,110 this is defining the proportion. 13 00:00:38,110 --> 00:00:42,120 This is judged by the ratio of scale from one comparison 14 00:00:42,120 --> 00:00:44,720 of 2 or more objects. 15 00:00:44,720 --> 00:00:49,160 Size is always a cautious choice made by the designer. 16 00:00:49,160 --> 00:00:50,710 Should it be scaled up, 17 00:00:50,710 --> 00:00:54,260 and how will it compare to the other objects? 18 00:00:54,260 --> 00:00:55,900 Will it be proportionate? 19 00:00:55,900 --> 00:00:59,520 Size and scale play a huge role in design. 20 00:00:59,520 --> 00:01:01,810 Next up, let's talk about texture. 21 00:01:01,810 --> 00:01:06,180 Texture is the quality of feel, appearance, or consistency 22 00:01:06,180 --> 00:01:08,730 of an object or objects. 23 00:01:08,730 --> 00:01:12,470 Thus, every shape and line has texture. 24 00:01:12,470 --> 00:01:15,920 There's implied texture, like with LEGOs. 25 00:01:15,920 --> 00:01:21,430 Or there's visual texture, which is different than implied, as there is no touch. 26 00:01:21,430 --> 00:01:24,950 One form of visual texture is pattern. 27 00:01:24,950 --> 00:01:29,200 Pattern is simply a repeated decorated design. 28 00:01:29,200 --> 00:01:33,180 Patterns are broken up into what we call a motif. 29 00:01:33,180 --> 00:01:37,040 When we repeat a motif, we have constructed a pattern. 30 00:01:37,040 --> 00:01:41,640 In this example, this design here would be the motif. 31 00:01:41,640 --> 00:01:43,930 Then when that motif is repeated, 32 00:01:43,930 --> 00:01:46,430 that's when our pattern is formed. 33 00:01:46,430 --> 00:01:51,360 So, again, we have implied texture, like LEGOs. 34 00:01:51,360 --> 00:01:53,150 And then we have visual texture, 35 00:01:53,150 --> 00:01:57,690 which are broken up into motifs, which then create a pattern. 36 00:01:58,310 --> 00:02:03,030 Next up, we have color, but before we jump into it, let's take a quick quiz.
