How do you use design?
Design has two totally different purposes. If you’ve ever thought about visual triangles, white space, or the rule of thirds, you’re probably familiar with the first and most common purpose — to make your page look good!
But did you know you can also use design to accomplish something else in addition to that? Something totally different?
If you’ve been a Paperclipping Member for a long time you might have a idea of what I’m talking about — or at least a nagging hint that hasn’t quite surfaced as a solid yet.
I decided to make a video that would clearly distinguish these two purposes. On the video I make two different layouts: a 6-photo page and a single-photo page.
1. While making the first layout I explain all the design principles I’m using to accomplish the first purpose of making the page look good.
2. Then I make the second page and focus on that mysterious, less-known second purpose for design.
