Thread: $ Simply Inspired Contest - Deadline 3/10/09

    $ Simply Inspired Contest - Deadline 3/10/09

    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!

    Winner's Circle

    Congratulations to last month’s Simply Inspired winner, Ashley Kennedy! Ashley won a $10 gift certificate to the Designer Digitals store for this gorgeous layout of her adorable little boy. Way to go, Ashley!

    Deena,

    Is there is no restriction on what % of DD products to use? (Although most of mine are DD.)

    Francine, there are no rules other than to get that visual triangle on your layout and upload by 3/10! So no worries!

    Oh, and you may also submit more than one layout to this contest!

    Looking forward to seeing what you girls come up with!
