The recurrence of an object or event. Repetition can create consistency and show that different things are related.!

ALIGNMENT!

This allows elements to create visual connections ! to one another; it intentionally creates order.!

PROXIMITY!

Nearness in space or relationship. By placing similar types of information close to one another, these things become more of a visual unit.!
