Students in Visual Design learned about the design concepts of positive and negative space, symmetry and pattern.
Their task was to abstract a letterform of their choice and create an interesting pattern from the original letterform. The original unit was created by cropping the letterform on a minimum of three sides. Students then repeated the letterform using one of four symmetries; translation rotation, reflection and glide reflection.
The result is a pattern that is made up of sixteen letterforms that have an equal balance of positive and negative space. Their completed work was displayed in the school library for all to see.
