### Objective 3.04: Apply the principles of design. 3. Balance: There are 2 types of balance: 1.

Slide 1

Objective 3.04:
Apply the principles

3. Balance:
There are 2 types of
balance:
1. Symmetrical
(Formal) Balance
2. Asymmetrical
(Informal) Balance

Symmetrical Balance – if a space is
divided in half, then both sides would
be identical.

Symmetry suggests dignity, quiet,
rest, and calm.

Asymmetrical Balance - if the space
is divided in half, the sides are
unmatched, but appear to be in

5. Emphasis

Emphasis - the focal point that first
catches the viewer’s attention

The focal point
doesn’t have to
be expensive.

Instead of 1 large object, you can use a
collection of smaller ones.

6. Harmony

Harmony is when all the parts of
a design are in agreement

There are 2 ways for designs to “agree” through UNITY or through VARIETY.

Unity - when all the parts of a design
are related by one idea.

When there is unity among design
elements, the result is design
harmony.

Unity can be
created by
choosing items
with similar
characteristics.

Variety is combining different
styles and materials together.

Variety adds interest to a design,
but confusion can result if too
much is used.

Unity and variety must be
combined to create harmony.

3. Balance:
There are 2 types of
balance:
1. Symmetrical
(Formal) Balance
2. Asymmetrical
(Informal) Balance

Symmetrical Balance – if a space is
divided in half, then both sides would
be identical.

Symmetry suggests dignity, quiet,
rest, and calm.

Emphasis - the focal point that first

Instead of 1 large object, you can use a
collection of smaller ones.

6. Harmony

Harmony is when all the parts of
a design are in agreement

There are 2 ways for designs to “agree” through UNITY or through VARIETY.

Unity - when all the parts of a design
are related by one idea.

When there is unity among design
elements, the result is design
harmony.

Unity can be
created by
choosing items
with similar
characteristics.

Variety is combining different
styles and materials together.

Variety adds interest to a design,
but confusion can result if too
much is used.

Unity and variety must be

Emphasis - the focal point that first
catches the viewer’s attention

The focal point
doesn’t have to
be expensive.

Instead of 1 large object, you can use a
collection of smaller ones.

6. Harmony

Harmony is when all the parts of
a design are in agreement

There are 2 ways for designs to “agree” through UNITY or through VARIETY.

Unity - when all the parts of a design
are related by one idea.

When there is unity among design
elements, the result is design
harmony.

Unity can be
created by
choosing items
with similar
characteristics.

Variety is combining different
styles and materials together.

Variety adds interest to a design,
but confusion can result if too
much is used.

Unity and variety must be
combined to create harmony.
