Emphasis

Making a particular element draw the viewer’s attention.

One method of achieving such emphasis is by making that element into focal point.

Placement

Direct center of a composition is the point at which users look first.

Continuance

When out eyes start moving in one direction, they tend to continue along that path until a more dominant feature comes along. Using an arrow is using the idea of continuance.

Isolation

An item that stands out from its surroundings will tend to demand attention.

Contrast

Defined as the juxtaposition of dissimilar graphic elements, and is the most common method used to create emphasis in a layout. For example, difference created between graphic element and its surrounding.

Proportion

A principle of design that has to do with differences in the scale of objects.

Balance

Equal weight on either side of a layout.

Symmetrical Balance occurs when the elements of a composition are the same on either side of an axis line. (bilaterally or radially)

Asymmetrical Balance involves objects of differing size, shape, tone, or placement. These objects are arranged so that they equalize the weight of the page. This kind of balance is versatile.

Unity

The way in which the different elements of a composition interact with one another.

Proximity - Placing objects close together within a layout creates a focal point toward which the eye will gravitate.

Repetition - Repetition of colors, shpaes, textures, or similar objects helps to tie a web pae design together so that it feels like a cohesive unit.
