Visual Analysis

The Kandinsky poster uses asymmetrical balance with the image and orange bar, and the text and orange bars at the top right of the page. The Orange number at the bottom, and small chart create balance as well. There is rhythm and harmony because of the tilt present throughout the objects. There is also proportion because “KANDINSKY” is larger than all of the other words on the page, while the other text is smaller. This poster relates to the international typographic style because the type face is sans serif, and simple allowing for legibility.
