Complementary My design is based on five periods of Magrittes art style. Rather than using just a horizontal timeline, I incorporated both a horizontal element and a vertical element. The horizontal element encompasses the separate periods (Cubism, War Years, Sunlit, Vache and Surrealism) and the vertical element orders the paintings by date. I chose my colors individually so that they could be representative of each period. The cubism period is neutral, the war years and the surrealism period are both dark, the sunlit period is bright and the vache period is unorthodox. I also chose the shape of the clipping mask according to the tone of the period. As for the choice of Script MT Bold for my typeface, I felt that a dark script would encompass Magrittes dark, mysterious personality.
