Week 3: Form 2

Write a sketch that generates 2 shapes on a page. The first shape should be your design of the word “wet”. The second shape should be your design of the word “sharp”. Use only black and white. You have to use either Rune.Polygon or Rune.Path objects to draw the two shapes, and please try to do a design that is better done in code than in hand. Print at AMS.

Week 2: Form 1

This week, I want you to design a simple book cover for the book The Martian. You can only use basic shapes (rectangle, triangle, ellipse, line) and black/white. Think about how you can use the basic relationships (shape, position, dimension, rotation) to illustrate the point you’re trying to make.

I knew that I wanted to create an extremely simple and minimal design and let the placement of the objects speak for themselves. I used the relative orbits of the Earth and Mars around the sun. I wanted the Earth to be the first thing the eye would see (scanning from the left to right) and then Mars, but in full view.
