About the Journal

"Nirmana" comes from Sanskrit. The literal meaning is formed from the words "nir" which means no and "mana" which means meaning. Thus, the literal meaning is without meaning or meaningless. In the context of Visual Communication Design, nirmana means symbols of meaningless forms. However, it can be seen as a unity of pattern, color, composition, rhythm, and tone in design. The shapes studied are usually started from basic shapes such as squares, triangles, and rounds which are previously meaningless and processed in such a way as to become and have a certain meaning. In spoken language, nirmana does not mean empty or nothing or abstract or even meaningless, but it implies that in the beginning, before creating something, nothing is seen or there is no meaning in everything. This is then used as a concept, a starting point, or a basis that must be mastered for those who want to learn about design before starting to create.
