2 Principles of Design Balance Proportion Emphasis Rhythm

3 Balance Equilibrium or steadiness among the parts of a design. It is the visual distribution of weight. Formal balance: symmetrical Informal balance: assymmetrical

4 Proportion The spacial, or size, relationship of all of the parts in a design to each other and to the whole. Also called scale. Body is 8 heads tall. 3/8 is waist to top of head. 5/8 is from waist down. Styles that complement that natural figure are more flattering and stay in style longer.

5 Emphasis Concentration of interest in a particular part or area of a design. One part is more important or more noticeable, it is the center of the outfit. It is best to have one area of interest.

6 Rhythm The pleasing arrangement of the design elements so the eye moves well over the apparel. It directs the flow of eye movement. Repetition: Can be a repeat of lines, shapes, colors, or textures Gradation: Also called progression. An increase or decrease in design elements. Transition:A fluid rhythm created when a curved line leads the eye over an angle. Opposition: hen lines meet to form right angles. Radial Arrangement: Line come from a central point.
