Getting Creative- #5 Emphasis

Remember the design principle of emphasis in your designs. Use emphasis to highlight areas of interest. Guide the eye through out your design with various focal points, color, size and hierarchy. Emphasis can be achieved by your color choices - working with darks then using a lighter color to emphasize an image or text. Don't be afraid to exaggerate to emphasis what is important in the design or image. Analyze your designs and make sure you are emphasizing the most important items.
