C.R.A.P. Design Principles - Prairie Home

+ C.R.A.P. Design Principles Adapted from http://bit.ly/sjnw & Robin Williams Non-Designers Design Book

+ Contrast Elements that arent the same should be very different

so they stand out. Making them slightly different confuses the user into seeing a relation that doesnt exist. + Repetition

Repeat visual elements of the design throughout the piece. You can repeat color, shape, texture, spatial relationships, line thicknesses, sizes, etc. This helps develop the organization and

strengthens the unity. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Headings and subheadings. Colors Rules Images Graphical elements & logos

+ Repetition Before After

+ Repetition + Alignment

Nothing should be placed on the page arbitrarily. Every element should have some visual connection with another element on the page.

+ Alignment Examples Left alignment No alignment +

+ Proximity Elements that are related should be grouped together, whereas separate design elements should have enough

space in between to communicate they are different. Before After
