Color & Shape

Experimenting with color and shape

I experimented with color theory by contrasting a cool, dark background with a burning, warm gradient of orange and pink hues. The goal of the exercise was to familiarize myself with color theory, to see what types of color work well, and how certain colors communicate different messages and emotion.

I also experimented with shape by duplicating a circle through a radial pattern. The opacity between the overlapping sections created an interesting and eye-catching pattern, and fit in well with Apple's golden ratio rule for iOS icons. Furthermore, the pattern scaled responsively to its size—the bigger it got, its complexity and intricacy increased with more circles added.
