2 Composition Proportion (Scale) Balance Movement Rhythm Contrast Emphasis Pattern Harmony/Unity

3 Proportion Proportion is the relationship between objects, or parts, of a whole. Elements seem to be an appropriate size for the space they fill.

4 Proportion The ratio of one part to the whole. Things just look right.

5 Formal Balance One side is a mirror image of the other side

6 Informal Balance Objects on each side of the central dividing line are different. More exciting and dramatic

7 Movement The use of lines, color and repetition to create the illusion of motion. Drawing the eye around the composition.

8 Movement The use of lines, color and repetition to create the illusion of motion. Drawing the eye around the composition.

9 Movement The use of lines, color and repetition to create the illusion of motion. Drawing the eye around the composition.

10 Rhythm- Repetition When a design element is repeated

11 Rhythm-Gradation Light to Dark Thin to Thick Small to Large

12 Rhythm- Radiation Lines flow out from a single point.

13 Contrast Contrast is using opposite or sharply different color, shape etc. to provide variety which creates interest.
