Layout design is the process of arranging visual and textual elements on-screen or on paper to grab a reader’s attention and communicate information in a visually appealing way.
Main Elements of Layout Design
Blocks of text in layout design include headlines, subheadings, headers, footers, and paragraphs. In web design, the text will also include menus and buttons. Whatever style of typography is chosen can communicate a different mood and can pair different types of text to achieve different effects.
Images in your graphic design can include photographs, illustrations, and infographics that become a part of your layout. Large images can grab the attention of your audience and communicate messages without text.
The line refers to the way that two points in space are connected. Whether they’re horizontal lines, diagonal lines, or vertical lines, lines can help direct the eye toward a certain point in your composition. They can also draw boundaries between sections or visual elements of your layout.
In its most basic form, a shape is a two-dimensional area that is surrounded by an outline.
There are three types of shapes:
- Organic shapes occur naturally in the world.
- Geometric shapes are angular and mathematically consistent.
- Abstract shapes represent things in nature but aren’t perfectly representative.
Circles, squares, or any other shape can be used in layout design to add graphic elements to a page, highlight text, or delineate space between other visual elements.
The blank space between elements in layout design can be as important as the visual elements themselves. The spacing around an element can draw attention to it and make it stand out.
