14. Pattern A two-dimensional decorative effect achieved through the repetition of colors, lines, shapes, and/or textures. Pattern is created by a regular or expected repetition. Patterns tend to have a flattening effect, which makes the space hard to read. The patterns clamor for attention, and almost seem to blend together.
18. Rhythm Rhythm is created when one or more elements of design are used repeatedly to create a feeling of organized movement. Variety is essential to keep rhythm exciting and active, and moving the viewer around the artwork. Rhythm creates a mood like music or dancing.
