  8. Shape is one of the basic elements of design. Alone or in combination with other shapes or lines they can convey universal meanings as well as guide the eye or organize information. Shapes and symbols have subliminal effects and are used with great effect by designers to ensure that the right message is portrayed. Shapes, boxes and borders are used in design to draw the eye, to add value to design and content, and to partition elements and enhance flow Shapes
  9. Circular shapes - No basic shape is more organic than the circle, it has a smooth quality that makes it appealing to the eye.

H orizontal lines are also known for their ability to organize content. Diagonal lines are the greatest way to create movement and direction. Where horizontal lines suggest gravity and are stable, diagonal lines are more unstable. These lines don’t lay down or stand up in a restful position, they are in motion and you can actually create a sense of speed just by simply adjusting the pitch of the lines: the steeper, the faster.
  13. Images Powerful images don’t just reflect a particular emotion but also create a relational association between the viewer and that image. The point being that these images are used for the sole purpose ofbringing forth the right emotion out of you.
  14. Images Image fundamentals - size, composition, quality and exposure are four important things to look for in a good image. People actually look for quality in images, even the contrast makes a huge difference. Example showing a comparison – good vs bad choice of image Choice and Placement of images go hand in hand.
