Visual Content Hierarchy Tips
Keep is clean
keep it simple
keep it relevant
Size — Larger elements will dominate
Color — Bright colors capture attention
Contrast — Stark differences work well
Alignment — Users expect to find certain elements in the same place.
Repetition — A repeated quality (e.g.,colored parts of text) draws the user’s eye.
Proximity — Putting related elements close together means these are related.
Whitespace — Including whitespace around elements singles them out.
Texture and Style — Using distinct textures/styles (e.g., chunky, military-style buttons) draws the eye and sets the tone.
