Design Shapes: The Circle, Part II

Created: Saturday, June 20, 2009, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 8:36 am



I shared a few “circle” thoughts with you in the first post in this series: Design Shapes: The Circle, Part I — and now it’s time to look at some more circles. What could be better than an entire book on circles, and my favorite is a book that’s entirely filled with color pictures of any sort of circular pattern that you might have seen!

The book is called Circles and Dots: Communicating with Pattern, and it contains 250 pages worth of circular inspirations for you to feast on.

This is a book that will inspire every individual in a way that’s different for each reader. Some people may get ideas about doing crafts and hobbies, others may launch their PowerPoint or Photoshop, and start creating circles — and others might just start doodling. But each of them will have their own circle of inspiration.

So how does it inspire me? I love to see how color and texture can make so much of a difference between one circle and the other — how light alters a circular concept in a photograph, and how many circles we have around us all the time that we are not even aware of!
