Ever since I discovered what they were, I’ve been a huge fan of Halftone images. They are images that use different techniques of black and white shading to look continuous to the human eye. From far away they may just look gray, but up close, they are interesting and intricate. Halftone was originally used in print, and of course, it doesn’t have much use in the digital world of unlimited colors. Still, I think the patterns are very cool – and I’m partial to anything with black and white.
So when I discovered these cool halftone images (see above), I knew I had to use them in a quiz. Black and white gives me a chance to play off the light and dark sides of a personality, which I love to do. Some people might find this too negative, and while Blogthings generally emphasizes strengths, I like to look at the flip side of things too. (Hardcore personality theory geeks: I based this quiz off the enneagram, and feel free to guess / ask what your number type was supposed to be.)
Anyway, give The Halftone Test a whirl, and let me know what you think of your result 🙂

- What sort of black and white patterns do you like? Bold contrasts? Or more subtle pin striping?
- Is there any part of design that interests you? Typography? Color theory? Fashion design? Cake design? I feel like we’re all a kind of arty bunch here, so I’d like to know where your interests lie.
