Hat’s off to Alumni Chris Do of Blind and the futur for this video about a math ratio found in nature that can be used to create amazing compositions in design. It’s historical roots go way back discovered, then rediscovered in history-the Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, The Golden Section, or the Greek letter Phi. The Egyptians used it to design the Great Pyramids and the Greeks used it for the proportions of the Parthenon. In the 1500’s it was called the Divine Proportion and Renaissance artists used it to drive the balance and beauty of their paintings and sculptures. You can learn more about this in page layout and portfolio classes at San Diego City College with Professors Sean Bacon and Bradford Prairie.read more
