Light and shadow

With this sunset image I want to highlight how Silhouettes can work beautifully in design. Their simplicity against a bold background is very effective and popular with consumers.

There are many different ways you can explore the theme of silhouettes such as block printing, collage and one of my personal favourites is paper cutting. Designers such as Rob Ryan have illustrated how patience pays off by using this method and create the most beautiful designs adored by everyone. Although it may seem a daunting task cutting out a whole design it can actually be very therapeutic once you get going! So once you have decided your subject matter have a play with paper cutting and seeks it is a technique you would like to persue further!
