web design 2: DESIGN PRINCIPLES

let’s now move on to the design principles who the hell is matched balance advance and positive and negative gap equilibrium is this sense of equilibrium achieved through connoted value pressure or lure both symmetrical and asymmetrical blueprints can be good but you need to think about the reasons for both so I’ve included some genuinely successful symmetrical websites and then I’ve also included some immense symmetrical or asymmetrical motifs at the bottom and you can see when you move one thing you know if you positioned something on the Left you’ll need to balance it with something on the right if you conclude something colorful over here that makes an area of contrast or our focal point you’ll need to balance that with perhaps something bigger over on the right-hand side and vice versa proportion proportion deals with the scale affairs but it also deals with the spreads or the openings between lines or these components within the composition itself scale shifts can create a sense of gap size vigor you want to use scale alters or changes but you don’t want to you just wanted to move those clearly defined and distinctive if you go up one key on a forte-piano that various kinds of creates a abrupt and it’s dissonant so you want to create proportional alters like in music the hell is harmonious and sort of organized or planned in their gap here are some examples of immense network intends exercising flake shifts abusing huge medium small-minded looking at this breach versus that spacing versus this spacing looking at the scale these little buttons versus the size of the type versus the little sailing this top bar versus the large bar at the bottom all those proportions are really important and reiterating proportions will help you construct impression of and compatibility within your motif fluctuation is simply how your gaze advances throughout the design often our nose starts at the upper left hand corner and moves left to right that’s a very Western mode of decipher that we’re all be applicable to and familiar with often ages our eyes also go to faces however always go to areas of highest comparison first so that’s why the symbols tend to be the highest contrast so you’ll will talk about hierarchy later but here are some examples of movement within entanglement scheme that you can use to your advantage to guide the sees nose throughout the design positive negative infinite are equally important a lot of people consider positive is more important than negative space negative opening is what assistances the positive and the positive helps the negative think of this letter form for example it’s not just a letter built with a induce pipe but it’s actually the Swiss when they built how about I can build the interior parts as much as they build the positive space or they care about the negative opening as much as the positive opening and really good design does no distinction between the two or they labour harmoniously together here are some enormous a few examples of negative opening within layout so must be considered negative rooms visual residues or interruptions not just dead space so you again think of them brick between the mortar you’ll want to design the mortar as much as you design the bricks so having these sort of visual interruptions in here is really important don’t time load all your nature right at the top at the upper left hand corner you’re not conceive with Microsoft Word you’re really moving things around freely in order to create these sort of fluid visual interrupts
