Graphic Design Principles


Additional Info on CRAP Principles

These are additional videos and articles about principles of design.  I would imagine you don't have time to read/see each, but I encourage you to at least peruse a couple of them.

Article 1
"Build Better User Experience With C.R.A.P. Design Principles" --  A blog article from a web design company. Excellent real-world examples of each principle. I especially like the ones on repetition.
Article 2
"C.R.A.P. Design Principles to Improve Visual Appeal"-- While the examples are not so visually compelling, the information provided in this article is spot on and helpful.
Video 1
Another video that quickly explains the principles and provides vivid and relevant examples.
Video 2
6 minutes of audio visuals that get to the point and keeps your attention.
