The Elements and Principles of Event Design


Event design principles

We as humans got so caught up in the routine. Every day we do the same things, interact with the same world. Experience nearly the same situations. It seems like a never-ending cycle that’s only time-consuming. Assuming that every day discolored gray, the event is the whole RGB spectrum. In other words, events bring change to the life we are living. No matter how small things can be different, But it is usually for good causes. The downside is that to create a memorable event, there will be some serious design and planning going around. I thought that events only get planned. I never heard of event designing. I mean how can it be different than event planning? Rhetorically speaking, it is assumed that the event design is how are things aesthetically supposed to be. While the planning is what brings it all to action.

  • Forms - Layout

It is the architecture of the space, things like the furniture, and the color choice that creates a vibe and balance to the landscape.
