the line – language of graphic design

line ‘lïn  n : the path traced by a moving point, a thin, continuous mark, as that made by a pen, pencil, or brush applied to a surface.

for a graphic designer – a line’s functions are limitless – it can join, organize, divide, direct, construct and move other graphic objects. A line can be read as a positive mark or a negative gap. a line can lead the eye as well as provide movement and energy to any layout/design and when used properly, a line can improve readability and the ultimate meaning of any visual message.

the line is a powerful asset within our tool box as a graphic design agency and we have used it to create striking effects & effective communication pieces.
