Minimalist Posters Using Golden Ratio

Designers often look for the proper composition of their artwork, placing meticulously those design assets on their proper places is the key to achieve the perfect design and artwork. Out of sight, there is an existing mathematical ratio of everything that can be used and its called Golden Ratio. When this ratio is being utilize, you will surely have the right guidelines in your projects.


The established definition is this: two objects are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. The value this works out to is usually written as 1.6180. The most famous application of the golden ratio is the so-called golden rectangle, which can be split into a perfect square, and a smaller rectangle that has the same aspect ratio as the rectangle it was cut away from. You can apply this theory to a larger number of objects by similarly splitting them down.
