Alignment & Distribution: Its the most important rule of any awesome, great or visually appealing design. Proper aligned design looks great everywhere whether you design for print media, ad media, desktop publishing or web related design. Sounds good huh! but the question is how to learn to use proper alignment or get in the sense of proper alignment in desiging. Let's go deep in the alignment & distribution but first see the example image below :
Alignment: Alignment means to arrange similar or other elements of design in the dimension of top, bottom, center, left or right to make design visually appealing. See above example image to understand it.
Distribution: Distribution means to giving or maintaing same distance between to similar or different elements of any design to make graphic layout clean and decent.See above example image to understand it.
Balancing & Grouping: Balancing & Grouping is the second most important rule of any visual design. In this rule we have to focus on elements of design for example if we have some text and some images in our design so we have to arrange them in the way that they balance themselves and look also great. You can do it in two ways.
- First Method - Using Different Elements: In this rule we arrange every elements with each other to balance them with each other. You can understand it easily with given example below:
So as you can see in above example, we have two types of elements text and picture and we have arranged them with each other to make layout appealing and visually great.They are balancing each other.Now let's take a look at the second method.
- Second Method - Grouping Individual Elements: In this rule we make different groups of different elements in design. Take a look at the example to understand it.
So as you can see in above example, we have created different groups of text elements and different groups of text elements as well. This layout method is also good for creating decent and great looking layout.You can also use both methods together to create a awesome design layout.
Contrast: Contrast is the essential part of any good graphic design.In this rule we have to make any element of our design to stand apart from other elements.This rule is used to assigning elements their importance in design.
Patterns & Gradients: You can make you design even more awesome by adding patterns in your designs background or in other elements of your designs.Gradients are very useful to make your design more live and joyful. Always remember when using gradients try to use two color gradient with silghtly color differences.
