Dilation – Design Strategy Blog

September 25, 2007


The Euclidian grid, being infinitely extend did not come with a system of proportion built in and so many artists and designers over the years sought out many different ways of introducing harmony into their works. Divine proportion being sometimes taught at design / art schools is only one of the better known systems. Though many graduates, in fact, still have difficulties with the “golden mean.” The golden spiral when employed by trees seems to give exceptional results, however, it doesn’t always produce good results when applied by designers. The divine spiral is singular and trying to apply it in all design work is a bit like trying to construct a forest by repetitions of single tree branch. It could to look odd. Only one of the many benefits of dilation strategy, on the other hand, is that dilations are constructed entirely of harmonious spirals should you need them. Always available when you want them and completely invisible when you don’t.
