Black and white can also be fun

Using the varying hues of black on InDesign, I set out to convey an emotion.

I set out to convey the feeling of chaos. Overall, the layout is very symmetrical. The rectangular boxes at the top of the design are evenly distributed. But then I place an oval dark shape at the corner to contrast with the symmetrical design. I hopes this would create an illusion of chaos. The shape should also be a focal point for the viewer.

Also, I tilt the rectangular box on the left to throw off the symmetry and again create a feeling of chaos.

There is a lot of white space in this design. I think the white space also adds to the feeling of chaos because it does not have any consistency and helps guide the readers eye across the design. White space also increases the viewer’s attention to all of the shapes on the page.
