Unity (Harmony): A principle of design related to the sense of wholeness that results from the successful combination of the component elements of an artwork.
Pattern: The repetition of elements or combinations of elements in a recognizable organization.
Variety: A principle of design concerned with the inclusion of differences in the elements of a composition to offset unity and add interest to an artwork.
Emphasis: A principle of design in which one element, or a combination of elements, create more attention than anything else in a composition. The dominant element is usually a focal point in a composition and contributes to unity by suggesting that other elements are subordinate to it.
Proportion: A design principle reflecting the size relationship of parts to one another and the whole.
