There are many ways to create interesting visual pathways on your project using surface design. The goal in coming up with a surface design is to create interest all around your three-dimensional piece. Leading lines are lines in a design that lead the viewer’s eye around the piece…try diagonals, or flowing, sweeping lines that carry the design from one side of the piece to the other.
Will you follow the symmetry of the form,
or will your design be asymmetrical?
How will you use surface design to give the
viewer clues about your culture
or personal interests?
