I thought this assignment was going to be a piece of cake while reviewing the weekly assignments. But truthfully when I went to start the blitz I just drew a blank and didn’t feel like I knew what I was doing. I thought I knew all the principles but turns out I had no idea according to the 8 Basic Principles of Design! I knew a little about each one, but the article really helped me tell the difference between each principle so that helped tremendously! So this was one of the assignments I spent time thinking about before I really got started. I feel like I was thinking too hard in the beginning of the assignment but once I started taking pictures of things I loosened up and really enjoyed the blitz.
Throughout the week I took a bunch of random pictures but Sunday is when my blitz really started blitzen! Sunday I went to Tyson’s Corner Shopping Center that I had never been to before! Literally all my friends have been but the queen of shopping hasn’t?! Nonsense.
My boyfriend and I had dropped his parents off at the DC airport that morning and on our way back to Fredericksburg we stopped at Tyson’s. My favorite mall now to say at the least! So many fancy shmancy stores, I could literally spend all day there without minding one bit.
There were so many examples of the design principles in the mall. Check out my design-blitz below at Tyson’s Corner!!!!
