This 'The Fundamental Elements of Design' video is a one-stop educator for those unfamiliar with art terms such as "saturation" or "value." Illustrating these terms through vibrant animations, the informative footage gives viewers exposition on aspects required in order to make designs successful. The video itself also follows these principles, making it doubly ingenious as it practices what it preaches.

'The Fundamental Elements of Design' video was made by Erica Gorochow, a freelance motion designer and animator. She currently resides in New York, where she uses software like Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects to create these wondrous videos.

Even if you're a seasoned veteran of art, it's still a good idea to watch this footage as a refresher of the elements inherent in all good design.
