I’ve chosen visual hierarchy, I thought of choosing the rule of thirds, but I want to learn something not just write about something I know, that’s boring. Visual Hierarchy is the principle of arranging elements to show their order of importance. Designers, artists and publishers’ structure visual characteristics so viewers can understand the information easily. Hierarchy helps make a layout or image clear, straightforward and easier to take in. Most design hierarchy on the web came from print-based design, such as newspaper layouts. Visual Hierarchy is used to rank design elements and influence the order you want your viewers to see them. By using principles like contrast, scale, balance and, more, each will appear in its rightful place and help the most important elements stand out.
The history of visual hierarchy isn’t very old at all, I found it so hard to learn and write about. Wikipedia says, “an early 20th-century German theory proposes that the human brain has innate organizing tendencies that “structure individual elements, shapes or forms into a coherent, organized whole,” especially when processing visual information.”
