Elements Of Design


A line is a fundamental mark or stroke used in drawing in which the length is longer than the width. Two connected points form a line and every line has a length, width, and direction if it is straight.

Line is the angles that structure the photo to make it look strong or weak or even create energy in the background building the main focus up.




Unlike the photo before this photo gives you an impression of dark sad more of a dead feel in the sense that the colors are black and white which brings out the photo and proceed it in that way.

Color can play a large role in the elements of design with the color wheel being used as a tool, and color theory providing a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual impacts of specific color combination.

This photos vibrant colors make the photos caption standout more in a way were its joyful relaxing and bright and it sets the emotions in a happy way.



A shape is defined as an area that stands out from the space next to or around it due to a defined or implied boundary or because of differences of value, color or texture. All objects are composed of shapes and all other Elements of Design' are shapes in some way

Shape is a 2D were the shading makes the photo seem 3D but its still 2D



  • An 3D object is were the photo has human features it jumps at you and looks 3 dimensional and makes the character come to life in away were people can actually connect with him in away


  • Tone is were the photo brings out emotion out of that person who is looking at the photo. Feelings like sadness anger happiness


  • Size is how big something is in the picture and how it draws the person to the picture how it emphasizes it size can also be used to bring out other elements


  • Space is how much in closed space you are using to take a picture how much space is in the picture and how much does the picture fill



  • Texture is where you see a familiar object and it makes you think of the taste feel smell hear. Pretty much what the picture does to your senses.


  • Balance controls the how much attractions is evenly or unevenly disputed in the picture.


  • Emphasis takes the most important object in your picture and brings it out and makes it stand out catches the persons eye


  • It’s the relative size of an object in a picture


Repetition of certain design will bring a clear sense of unity, consistency and cohesiveness

  • Using the same or reusing similar elements in the design.


  • All the elements in an image that haven't been taken apart or out.

  • We see the image as a whole but are able to take out elements from it.


It helps in attracting the viewer and targeting their eye through a visual communication.

  • When two or more elements that have opposite qualities are put together.


  • Where items are placed in relation to each other is another important gestalt consideration. Proximity relationships will generally dominate over similarity relationships. The strongest control is available when the two are used together.

  • There are four specific types of proximity relationships that will be studied in this lesson: close edge, touch, overlap and combining.


Typography is using words in an unique way to create or enhance the letters to create something magical
