Some basic good design concepts, part III

Filed under: Learning — admin @ 1:19 am

Here are some details on the four basic principles that I previously mentioned.

(1) contrast — mark out something as different from the rest by using larger font size, or a different color (black/white), or central location to create visual attraction.

(2) Repetition — repeat visual elements of the design, repeat color, shape, texture, spatial relationships. This helps develop the organization and strengthen unity within a group of similar data.

(3) Nothing should be placed on the page arbitrarily. Every element should have some visual connection with another element on the page. This creates a clean, sophisticated, organized look.

(4) Proximity — group related items together. Items relating to each other should be grouped close together. When several items are in close proximity to each other, they become one visual unit rather than several separate units. This helps organize information and reduced clutter.
