The isometric view of the Tip up shows contrast between the thickness of the flag and the
thickness of other parts. Another thing about contrast is that the wheel contrasts with all the
other straight edges and the colors blaze orange and black contrast each other. The solid form
created by long rectangles and circles shows rhythm with the repeated grooves on the main
stick which you can see in this view. From this view you can see how the shape is both
geometric and mechanical meaning it has both rectangular and circular parts. In this view you
can see the economy of the Tip Up with its simple, straight, clean, lines and its simple
geometric shapes. Another thing that you can see from this view is the balance of this product.
The shape of this product has geometric balance with the arms being the same size. It also
has balance with the space between each arm. Even the texture has balance with it being
smooth without. One last thing that you can see from this view is the proportion of this
product. The two cross sticks are proportional to each other by being the same size and the
two cross sticks are proportional to each other by being the same distance apart.

The side view of the Tip-up shows the diameter of the spool, thickness of the pole, and the
thickness of the base. This view also shows the contrast between the blaze orange of the flag
and the dark black of the base and pole. If you look closely you can see the groves and
indents of the pole and the spool. The amount of orange is disproportionate to the black which
allows the user to see where the flag is (up or down) from long distances away. The tip-up is
asymmetrically balanced for the most part except for the base is off centered about an inch.
