I recently put up a post about animation showing the Elements of Design, and this project is very similar in theme. Efil Türk, a graphic designer from Turkey, has created 10 posters explaining principles of design by only using bold, colourful paper-cuttings in geometric shapes/patterns. The poster principles cover: balance, hierarchy, pattern, rhythm, space, proportions, emphasis, movement, contrast, and unity.
These posters are beautiful in appearance; it just goes to show that not everything has to be done on a computer to look modern and great. There are examples below but if you want to see more on their behance page, there is a link underneath.
