3. C.R.A.P. Design Principles

3.1. Contrast

3.1.1. The idea behind contrast is to avoid elements on the page that are merely similar. If the elements (type, color, size, line thickness, shape, space, etc.) are not the same, then make them very different. Contrast is often the most important visual attraction on a page.

3.2. Repetition

3.2.1. Repeat visual elements of the design throughout the piece. You can repeat color, shape, texture, spatial relationships, line thicknesses, sizes, etc. This helps develop the organization and strengthens the unity.

3.3. Alignment

3.3.1. 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, fresh took.

3.4. Proximity

3.4.1. 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 reduces clutter.

4. Copyright, Creative Commons, Etc.

4.1. Copyright is a permanent work such as writing or sound or images. It is forbidden to use the copywriter work unless you are the owner

4.2. Books, plays, music, dance, movies and pictures can all be copywriter. However idea's cannot be copywriter.

4.3. Originally copyright only lasted for 14 years. Now they last forever. Once copyright time is over, it moves into the public domain for free use.
