Here’s a little something you learn in the very beginning of design school: Balance.
There are 3 types-
- Symmetrical: A mirror image – usually seen as a more formal atmosphere
- Asymmetrical: Disproportion between two parts – more informal
- Radial: Balance that radiates from the center
These 3 images below (as well as the first image above) represent ‘symmetrical’ balance.
Now, here are a few examples of ‘asymmetrical’ balance
And finally, ‘radial’ balance
I hope you learned something from this post and maybe even learned a little bit about yourself in the type of balance you prefer. Don’t be afraid to experiment and mix it up a little bit!
