This image found on Marian Bantjes’s website helps us understand how form storming and modularity act in graphic design. This is an image she created for WIRED 15.05. There was not much information about it on her page, but the short description talking about wired popped out at me. The thin lines that move throughout the page look like wires all connecting together. Many wires can create some chaos, which this does in some way.
The idea behind form storming and modularity is to use basic symbols, or reconfigurations of them, that are known by the majority of public and using them to create a deeper meaning. The symbol is representational of more than the basic, immediate meaning it portrays, and how the designer uses it depends on how the end result of the design is seen to the viewer.
