Choose your components to be harmonious.
Put your components together in a unified way.
Proportion What is the dominant direction or movement of your design?

Contrast What is the area that will draw the eye to the design first?
What is the relationship of that focal area to the rest of the design?
Balance Is the balance symmetric, asymmetric or open balance?
Rhythm How will you create movement from one area to the next in the design?
Repetition, variation, transition.
Light Do you have control over the lighting?
If your design is submitted by photograph what background will you use?
Space What is the space around the design where it will be staged?
What space will be used between components to create rhythm?
Line What is the primary line of your design? Secondary line/s?
Form What form do the lines create?
Size What is the size of the space allocated for the design?
