WORK EXPERIENCE

Gayleforce Design started back in the day when we speced type for the typesetter, cut amberlith and used a darkroom for imaging. Those days are long gone with the advent of computer graphics, thank goodness! But the basic theories of good design remain the same.

  1. Alignment - creates a sharper more unified design

  2. Repetition - strengthens a design by tying together otherwise separate parts, and creates consistency

  3. Contrast - create emphasis and impact when two elements are total opposites

  4. Hierarchy - creates organization: heading, intro text, subheadings and body copy. All of which work together to lead the viewer through the information

  5. Balance - provides stability and structure to a design

Gayleforce keeps the traditional elements of design and applies them to today’s vibrant marketplace.
