8 VectorsA vector is a line that leads your eye from one element to anotherA vector may be a visible line or an invisible oneIt can be created by such things as a gaze, pointing fingers or extended arms
9 Explain how vectors work in the following images
15 The Centre Images here are the nucleus information. The margin images are subservient
16 FramingElements in a layout can be disconnected and marked off from each other or connected. If elements are cut off from one another they are strongly framed
17 Framing continued…Framing can be achieved by borders, discontinuities of colour and shape, or by white space.Connectedness can be achieved by vectors and devices such as overlapping or superimposition of images.
