Perception---you have that power.

There is purpose in design. There is information in a setting. There is truth in your environment. Fake or real, it's there.

Professor Perspective

World by Design highlights design elements that catch my eye. Today’s design elements are brought to you by Professor Perspective.

Since some professors like to wear bow ties, I will honor them by using the classic bow tie to show the basic perspective idea that what’s above the horizon line goes down to it as is recedes upstage away from the viewer, and what’s below the horizon line goes up to it. Many perspective vanishing points can be used this way.
 The multiple vanishing point possibilities makes this perspective form better for coming close to reality than the one-point perspective (train tracks and telephone poles receding in the distance)
 Just for reference, here’s the old one point perspective. This is very limiting!
