Terms: Alignment: A design principle that suggests each element on the page should have visual connection with other elements. No placement of an item on the page should be arbitrary. Alignment refers to both text and visual elements. For example, text can be left or right aligned (or called justification in word processing). Alley: The white space between columns of text in a document, such as a newspaper or newsletter. For example, if you have two columns of text, the space between the columns is called the alley. Analogous colors: Colors which are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. Anti-aliasing: in computer design, smooths the pixels at the edges of text and images to make them blend better into the background. Often creating a halo effect. Ascender: The parts of letters that are taller than the x-height. Asymmetrical balance: Occurs when several smaller items on one side are balanced by a large item on the other side, or smaller items are placed further away from the center of the screen than larger items.
