Anchor points

One way to achieve balance in a composition is to use anchor points. They are located at the edges of a module or an entire layout and in the center of them. These points form the focus and attract the attention of users.

Points on the corners and in the center are where the user's eye catches.

Anchor points help hook attention and follow a logical path. They also help make a central object stand out among all the rest.

You don't always have to design on all five points, there can be two, three, or even one. Placing a few elements in the corners or in the center will still make the design appealing.

Lots of white space and the positioning of the text around the edges makes the design super stable.

Combining different modules built on the technique of anchor objects, gives outstanding results and super clear design.

Using the anchor point technique, you can create different combinations of beautiful modules.

Anchor objects also work in more complex modules, such as cards with many different elements inside. The arrangement of elements by anchor points makes the card design stable and reliable.

Even the more complex cards with the distribution of content in the corners, gives a reliable and attractive design.

You can apply the anchor point method not only to build typography and design small modules. This technique is also suitable for building the entire layout.
