If visuals could scream, wail or attack, what would they be like? Maybe you can find the answers in this book. Since a long time ago, there has always been some artists who resort to a fierce visual language to release their emotional powder kegs. These visuals are shocking, stinging, terrifying, or even depressing. Unsettling as they are, we believe that such visual fierceness offers unique aesthetic value and can inspire generations. In this book, we will look into this extreme visual language, and try to find out how our early predecessors as well as our contemporary visual artists created the most striking images.

Effective visual communication is not an accidental occurrence, but the result of serious intention on the part the designer to balance all aspects of the design. This is often achieved through careful application of proportion based on certain guiding principles long in existence: the golden ratio, or divine proportion, and the Fibonacci sequence. Both mathematical constructs that mirror patterns found throughout nature, from leaves and shells to sunflowers and pinecones. Artists and designers have made use of these principles for centuries to create work with long lasting appeal, from renaissance paintings to modern logos. Following a practical overview, Visual Harmony presents a survey of contemporary graphic design that all exhibits this masterful use of proportion.
