A balanced design is half the message conveyed.

Gradation

Probably the best thing that colour does to a design, is to excite emotional response. Colours have unique abilities to excite emotional responses, for example, red is known for excitement, while blue is known for calmness, whereas orange is known for energy.

Dominance can be used with almost all the basic design element. Colour dominance is a great way to stimulate psychological reactions, the size dominance is a way to convey brand message etc.

Design can also be used with one or with the combination of elements to create emphasis.

Unity

Unity in design, is creating a compliment in design, for example, to portray and aggressive design you can use a hard texture with warm colours, that way we create an aggressive design that is complimented by rough texture and warm colour. A calm design will be created by using soft texture and calm colours.

Not just with colours, Unity can also be used with typography and size, or shape and effects. Nevertheless, it is a great way to create a complete design with complimentary elements.

Lastly the completed design, is incomplete without harmony in design. Harmony represents cluster that has similar elements or features. Together they are creating an impactful, symmetrical or asymmetrical or informal designs. The designs that are in harmony are not only accepted and received well.
