By using principles like contrast, scale, balance and, more, you can help establish each element in its rightful place and help the most important elements stand out.


Visual hierarchy can play a key role in the planning of your information architecture to help your users navigate through your product easier.This can drastically reduce the amount of effort needed to engage with your product.


Visual hierarchy is used to help place importance on certain elements of your design, but the more elements you deem the “most important,” the harder it’s going to be to perfect your design.
