I get a kick out of diagonal lines. I prefer diagonals to regular horizontal or vertical stripes. Diagonal lines definitely funky and even a little mind bending. (I love it when they veer into the territory of optical illusions.) I don’t think they’re personally flattering, but I like them in design and decor. And since diagonal lines can be so overwhelming, I like them in small doses. Diagonal accessories and accents, yes. All over prints? Not so much.
I think one of the coolest things about diagonal patterns is how they’re so simple yet complex. The infinite combinations of line widths and colors mean that diagonal patterns can be conservative or wild, subdued or bold. The possibilities are endless! And of course, the diagonal patterns that you prefer has to say something about you, right? I thought it would be fun to base an entire image quiz on diagonal images, and luckily, I found a talented artist that had made nine amazing images to use.
So of course, it was time for an image test: The Diagonal Test – I loved all of the bold and bright images in this collection. I had a lot of fun writing the results using a little color theory and a lot of intuition. These images just spoke to me, so I found it easy to imagine which each one could represent personality-wise.
The Diagonal Test has nine possible results. Which one do you get? Does it describe you? Comment and let me know. If you feel up to it, try looking at your second favorite image and maybe even your least favorite. They might give you insight into your secondary personality characteristics and your polar opposites. Let me know 🙂 How do you feel about diagonal patterns?
