I thought I’d continue a little off of last week’s term, white space, with Hierarchy. This one might be more widely understood, because it doesn’t pertain only to design. But when it comes to visual hierarchy, it’s about the organization of content, emphasizing some pieces, while diminishing others. A few simple ways of doing this is through sizing, font weights, colors, placement, grouping, white space and more.
Take a look around you, magazines, books, websites, logos, etc., you’ll begin to notice those small little details everywhere!
