At the PHP Meetup, we discussed using Bootstrap to build a web app. Here are my notes from Bootstrap 101.
4 Basic Principles of Design
Developers who create web apps should be familiar with the 4 basic principles of design: Proximity, Alignment, Repetition and Contrast.
The way elements are grouped together to create a sense of unity
- Place items in relation to other items; do not place them arbitrarily.
- Grid Theory
Use elements repeatedly in your web app. Users expect consistency in your design.
When 2 items are different, they should compliment each other and not conflict. When you do, you have contrast. Such as when you use white text on a black background.
