    Golden Ration A.K.A Fibonacci Sequence in Visual Form for all you mathematicians

    In the beginning, there was some weird stuff going on with your camera. Idk if it was a filter or something, but it would subtly switch from redish tones to a yellowish green and back and forth. It wasn't too noticeable, but it just caught my eye.

    can you mix the circle and the shell golden ratio shapes to make a logo that has both rectangular and circular shapes?

    you can find the golden ratio anywhere which is why it is stupid to say you need to use it to make a difference. da vinci didn't use it.

    Where can I download a good golden ratio image to use for my designs? and BTW, Phenomenal Tutorial Thank you so much Sir! If feels like we graphic designers learn more in YouTube than in our own college.

    Will, small thing that's driving me mad. When I've got the move tool selected I don't get the option to scale the rectangles from the corner – I have blue corners not white. I can scale with free transform tool but it tends not to snap to point as well. Any ideas??

    Thanks 🙂

    Calls it a tutorial, says "So instead of me showing you how I did it" and skips to the end :/

  21. Aaron Kaminski Avatar

    Considering you never actually said what the golden ratio was, I'm hella confused.

  22. Neithan Avatar

    Sure, let's throw the golden spiral and then draw a logo on top of it that has dozen's of other design and geometrical concepts and we'll be able to say we used the golden ratio to design our logo "wooww mad skillz". What a load of crap.

    Thanks for the tutorial. Very helpful! I have a question. At 6:32 you talk about cutting the circle. I Googled and couldn't find a method as quick and simple as shown. Will you please share the steps used? Thank you!

    You just blew my mind!. thank you for this amazing tutorial. 🙂

    If anyone is having trouble with the spiral part of the golden ratio make sure to link the width and height before you divide it. I know he did not mention it. So there you go.

    Thanks Will! I recently started getting into Branding and Design and your videos have been incredibly helpful.

  34. Hammad S Avatar

    Honestly the brochure/website template explanation made no sense. That should've come at the end. Though, I'm still confused what you were talking about even after finishing the video. You just said "this here, that there"….no explanation.

  35. flymoon lu Avatar

    Awesome video! A quick question, can I ask how could you join two curved lines smoothly?around 6:55 of the video. Thank you very much.

  36. Cristian Delgado Avatar

    at 5:00 you said this is how the Golden Rectangle is made. Your 2 squares are not in proportion to the Golden Ratio. Proof? Look at the small square in your left rectangle vs the right rectangle. WRONG. Come on bro.

    11:22 take notes if you're trying sell your ass outside of graphic design

  38. Chris Jackson Avatar

    the Fibonacci Sequence actually is not the golden ratio, it is very close but it is not the same. what makes something look nice is consistency in ratio but the golden one is not the only ratio that looks nice. it has a lot of examples of being done nicely, but there's nothing special about it. theres a spiritual idea behind it that says its connected to everything in the universe but thats dumb. use this ratio if you want but its not the only one so dont limit yourself

    you sound like BANE, try to tone down your voice and "shoot them out of the plane"
