"Attention to detail is the essence of integration." Even though integration is typically used as a design word, it is also a good word for describing life. To integrate means to combine individual parts to create a whole.
Attention to detail is so important in achieving integration. There is another quote that says the same thing..."the devil is in the details". If something is not adequately integrated into a piece, it will not be convincing. For instance, paying attention to edges is so important to this concept. If you don't give attention to your edges, they may be all hard or all diffused. To have design elements well integrated, it is necessary to have both. It is also important to have lost and found edges. This is accomplished by allowing some of the edges of an image to be hidden behind color or other images. It gives depth and a sense of being grounded to the piece...or integrated.
Some of the other important details are division of space, designing the corners, contrast, value arrangement, shapes, etc. So these are just a few more details to think about.
Please contact me personally to inquire about this piece.
