A7 Proportion: Hierarchy & Focal Point

One example of the exercise, emphasizing visual hierarchy.


It’s your turn! Create your own version of Hierarchy through the medium of your choosing: photography, painting, drawing, digital tools, mixed media, etc. Details: Create a composition that’s a layering of three visual messages or visual items. Make whichever adjustments you need to make to create a hierarchal composition but one with a focal point. Bonus if the net result communicates something stronger than just those suggested by the individual parts alone.

When you’re done, post your exercises to Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram.
