Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

The rhythm in graphic design has different definitions, but mostly shows a repeated pattern to feel more organized. In here we can find some relevant elements that are going to be helpful for our creations, like for example lines, repetition, intricate details, gradation, as the most important ones.

In graphic design we can find six different types of rhythms: random, regular, alternating, flowing, fluid and progressive. To make it clearer for you, the random rhythm, is about when you repeat elements without giving a specific sequence. On the regular rhythm, we can find that is about a type of design that has the same intervals over and over again. On the alternating rhythm, we can use all the patterns we want. At the flowing rhythm, we can see that are some repeated elements like curves or undulations. The fluid rhythm is related to the movements, like for example, something liquid, that most of the times flows on the same direction. The progressive rhythm is related on how objects are organized to help the human eye identify the things on a more easy way.




  • Rhythm: A strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound.
  • Intricate: Very complicated or detailed.
  • Random: Proceeding, made or occurring without definite reason or pattern.
  • Flowing: Graceful and fluent.
