DIN formats and Tangram animals

The first half of the day we were introduced into Grafik Design with a little inside into layout and Tangram experimentations. Things I learned today:  Typical DIN formats which are used in print, and their measurements in mm:

  • A0 …………………841x1189mm
  • A1……………………594x841mm
  • A2 …………………..420x594mm
  • A3 …………………..297x420mm
  • A4 …………………..210x297mm
  • A5 …………………..148x210mm
  • A6 …………………..105x148mm
  • A7 …………………….74x105mm
  • A8 ………………………52x74mm

After this brief info we already started working on the Tangram animals.  A few hours later with a lot of fun with weird looking creatures, and three sets are done. The left one represents a heave, strange shark. The middle one is a duck flying, in the phase of landing. The right and last one is a camel.  I suggest trying out yourselves simply because it’s a fun way to play with imagination furthermore you may come up with some future logo for any work ahead.  Just give it a try.

Our teacher works for a great looking Graphic Design company called Graffisch. Checked them out, they offer a variety of  services such as Corporate Design, Illustrations, animation and more. Here a link to the website: http://graf-fisch.de

The rest of the day, German. Instead of staring of easy, everybody had to give a short speech. Although it wasn’t as easy for many students, it helped to find out what exactly we are capable of, and what needs to be improved.  So a little tip: learn how to give a decent speech. It’s not only important in Graphic Design but for your life in general.  TED talks for instance helped me a lot to improve my style of talking to others. I can only encourage you to visit the website in get smarter every day! They even have a ton of content concerning Art and Design. Link: http://www.ted.com/

Let me know what your favorite DIN format to work with is.
