Design Argumentation - Shapes Argumentation

Let’s continue with getting more design vocabulary, this time about shapes, dividing the article into two parts: the different types of shapes and the meaning of them.



Types of Shapes:

  • Geometric: The typical “math” ones. Circle, square, rectangle. These are identified as organization, efficiency, structured.
  • Organic: Irregular with curves. Eye pleasing and comforting. It reminds the typical nature shapes.
  • Abstract: Not real. Typography and Icons are abstract ones because they came from a simplified version of letters, ideas and concepts.



Meaning of Shapes:

  • Circles: Suggest completeness, without beginning or end. Warm, conforming, sensuality, love, energy, power. Protection, endurance, restriction.
  • Squares & rectangles: Stables and honests. Order, mathematics, rationality. Solidity, security and equality.
  • Triangles: Dynamic. Stable or unstable depending on their base. Tension, action, aggression. Steady if stable and conflicted if unstable. They suggest movement based of which way they point. Progression, direction and purpose.
  • Spirals: Organic patterns, growth, evolution, time, life…
  • Crosses: Divine, nature, wisdom, faith, balance, hope….
  • Curved shapes: Organic, movement, happiness, pleasure…



Shapes - Design Argumentation Exercise #1

Defend a good web design that uses containers elements with round shaped corners and other onewith square corners. Use at least 4-5 adjectives to defend each example.



Shapes - Design Argumentation Exercise #2

Explore the web and list some good examples of not so common shapes like triangles, spirals, or organic ones. Now, defend why these are good examples.

Melody Koh

Here's a look at my salary breakdown for the past ten years, annualized in USD. I’m a product designer in tech with a non-FAANG résumé, going from a medium cost-of-living area to a high-cost-of-living area, and at the center of the matrix of domination.

Product Design career paths are broken. Fundamentally and inextricably. Not out of malice, but out of no constant and clear drum beat; nobody noisily shouting with vigor that “our career paths are broken!” It’s time somebody said it, so why not us?

Ryan Ford

The gestalt principles for visual perception make users see some graphical user interface design elements as parts of a whole, and others as being separate, and thus different.

Maria Rosala

When designing navigation on mobile, we don’t have to rely on slide-in-menus or nested accordions. We can also use the curtain and billboard design patterns, and show multiple levels of navigation at once.

Vitaly Friedman

In this article, we’ll further explore this topic by discussing “Roles”, which mark the purpose of a page element (and how to interact with it).
