My! What Big Teeth...
Sampath took the sword for design and Aruna took the sword for copy. Besides, we had the TEASE to decide on too. There was a suggestion that the next TEASE be something to do with things. Something you can hold. Something you can mould... Ah. There's a thought.
Perhaps, there's something else we need to give serious thought to. Perhaps it's time to ask ourselves if we are getting our proportions right.
"Proportions can make or break a design. Choose the right proportions and the piece will attract the eye, hold its interest and connect with the viewer..." So goes a broken link when you put in the words 'design proportions' in Google search. But broken or not, those few lines say a lot we could take a cue from.
Sans proportion, design is just so. Imagine yourself with a disproportionate mouth or ear or palm, one bigger than the other. Why even Little Red Riding Hood knew about proportions.
That's just a thought. But perhaps it shouldn't remain just that.
