What are the 6 Elements of Design?

What does 6 Element Designs stand for?

6 Element Designs stands for all six fundamental elements needed in the production of a design.

Visual designs and works of art are all comprised of many elements that can be isolated and defined.

The 6 Elements of Design are:

  1. Color
  2. Line
  3. Shape
  4. Texture
  5. Size
  6. Direction

Each element is a component that brings order and structure to a design or art piece. We then apply design principles to these elements in order to make tweaks and adjustments.

What are the principles of design?

  1. Balance
  2. Space
  3. Alignment
  4. Repetition
