Lesson Info

The Rule of Three

The rule ofthree the actual definition it refers to the concept that things that are done in three rather than two or four are inherently more visually pleasing memorable and effective than other numbers of objects there's a lot of theory and you know mystical stuff behind that but it is true we dio gravitate towards three that's why the visual triangle works but we can use the rule of three in different ways than other than the visual triangle so we can do the rule of three and repetition with journal strips so you can break your journaling block up he doesn't have to be one big block of journaling and you can um create some repetition with your journaling blocks you can also create repetition in the rule of three with your titles I was the same word over and over again but I used happy, happy, happy and when it does is it creates emotion because it's so vibrant and crazy it shows that you're happy happy, happy happy so if you have a short one word title it's fun especially if it's so...

mething that is more upbeat too use the rule of threes and duplicated um you can also use the rule of three with your actual layout placement this is obviously one rule of three one two and three it also creates a sort of visual triangle there there um, not completely interchangeable, but a lot of times. The rule of three, if you're using it on bigger objects, like clusters, will create a visual triangle as well, so you can see that you can also use the rule of three. With photos. So here's one, two, three photos. This doesn't create a triangle, so you can see how it uses the rule of three without the triangles, you can see also that I've kind of kept up the rule of three with the the amount of embellishments as well. There's, kind of the same visual wait all the way across, even though they're not the same embellishments.

I'm a photographer. I do a lot of graphic design for my business. I feel like I'm fairly knowledgeable. I saw this class being shown for free on Creative Live one day and it wasn't my first choice to watch, but was the best out of the list... I was wrong. This is a great class. I didn't expect to learn that much and I've been learning a lot! Great info!
