Are there basic rules governing design that, when learned, will facilitate the creative process? Hambidge’s study of Greek art convinced him that the secret of the beauty of Greek design was in the conscious use of dynamic symmetry–the law of natural design based upon the symmetry of growth in man and in plants.
