Response to Reading
Something that I found very interesting from our reading is the use of hierarchy. This technique is something that is so vital to graphics design, and it is something that is looked over because it seems natural to us. For example, looking at anything from a TV commercial to a concert poster, one will immediately notice some aspect of the image over another, and these aspects tend to be the most important parts of the message. This idea is so necessary to the creation of the design, and the ways of creating hierarchy is unique. The designer has to chose how he or she will create hierarchy and why, and I think that is an underestimated quality of graphic design.
