What will you create?

… the theme for this year is… REPITITION?

Repetition is a fundamental concept used frequently in the design world. As a key element of design, repetition is the use of repeated patterns or motifs to create visually appealing compositions. 

When repeating a particular shape, colour, or texture, you create a visual rhythm that draws the eye in and creates a sense of balance and harmony. Repetition is a powerful tool that helps unify design elements and create a cohesive aesthetic.

We challenge you to use repetition in your designs to help bring your creations to life. For inspiration scroll down to our instagram feed and see how reputation features frequently across so many styles.
