The concepts were produced for different reasons; asymmetric typography was invented for an expression of thought and writing where as high contrast was first created to save printing costs.




Red with black and colour blocks but use slightly similar methods to create the final outcomes such as the concepts use the idea of collaging  with over lapping colours and shapes. Both of these concepts use the a lot of negative space to create interesting shapes and designs


The re-invention of both of these concepts happened within a 10 year span.


Concept Two:AsymmetricTypography   DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CONCEPTS:


Key differences within these two concepts are the colour palette as red with black has a strict limited palette which in theory allows only a limited amount of emotions to be created and conveyed where as colour blocks lets the artist has full reign over the colours they use and what emotions these colours can convey.
