techniques for creating emphasis, making important things bigger or brighter, not too much text because things blend together and get lost

why?, adding emphasis makes sure that the reader atleast reads the importand parts of your peice of work.

BoD chapter 3


it is important to make titles bold and contrast with other information., when people are drawn to a title they remeber it better and makes more effective advertising., font, color and size are good contrasting tools to use.

contrast is one of the quickes and most effective ways to draw attention, (don"t be afraid to use it)


strong alignment helps tie the whole piece together and is less confusing.

important information like telephone numbers should be big and in an obvious place so they are easy to find

BoD capter 4


It is a very imporant general technique that helps tie a whole piece together

visual weights are supposed to make a whole page visually even

using black and white only, using black and white the correct way can still create an impact and is usually cheaper as well.

using color, appropriately and effectively use color, to create a balance of the page., appropriate colors are important

BoD Chapter 5

text alighnment

asymmetric text alignment, visually interesting difficult to read, better with short lines of text, EX: magazines

concrete text alignment, hard to read visually interesting

grid structure, multiple page documents, one to seven colomb grids, the grid structures help create a layout for a page and keep information organized. can be flexible and still keep things organized.

BoD Chapter 6


repeating some visual aspects of a shape, color, line, etc., EX: bullet points, lines, initial caps.

pages visually organized, conistent, and unified

begnners fail to use enough repetition, do not seek all opportunities for repetition

proximity, spacial location-close related items are closer together

closure, natural tendency to close groups

continuation, eye seeks relationships: eye follows line, curve, sequence of shapes.



achieved by repetition, the human eye seeks unity- everything looks like it belongs together, easier to read, group similarities

before you begin

visual elements, deciding what you want to say and what visual elements you want to include is an important first step

layout, placement of the visual elements on the page., determine what is required in the whole piece and begin designing the layout

audience, determining who your audience is is an important thing to do before you start your design., figure out what speaks to them, try putting yourself in their position.
