Challenge: Use A Visual Triangle
Deadline: March 10, 2009

This week we're going to take a fresh look at that time-tested design principle: the visual triangle. From the beginning of design, visual triangles have been one of the easiest ways to achieve a balanced layout. A visual triangle is the placement of related visual elements (whether photos, embellishments or colors) at three separate points to form a triangle. This placement helps the eye travel around the page and unifies individual elements to create a cohesive design. So on your next layout, we want to see you put this tried and true design principle to good use.

Upload your layout(s) on or before March 10 to the Simply Inspired gallery. Feel free to leave a comment here as well and link us up to your creations. One winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the DD store and get his or her layout published in the DSM Wire!
