When you talk about the basics of design you always begin with the basic elements of any design. The smallest of them all is the point. It is the beginning and the end of anything.
Points in a design can make it dynamic or static, colorful or monochromatic, you can create shapes or textures either visual or tactile. The point is one of the most versatile of all design elements.
The point is the perfect element to get anyone started in design as it is the only element that you can have a lot or very little of and always do it right. Use it in different colors or just in one and most of all have fun with them!
Have a fun day!
