  1. Principles of composition
    • The composition of a design informs our understanding of it, shapes our feelings about it and guides the use we make of it.
    • Structure, organisation and rhythm are just some of the components that, together, form design composition.
  2. Structure
    • Just having all the necessary parts for a structure is little use. This is like having all the parts for your bicycle brake but not putting them together. They wouldn’t work – the bicycle wouldn’t slow down when you applied the brake. What’s important is the organisation given to these parts. This idea of creating organisation by assembling parts into structures lies at the heart of design composition.
    • Simplification also means that there is likely to be some repetition
  3. Repetition
