Proximity is one of the five basic principles of design. How close or how far or in wet alignment are the elements you’re working with arranged in your design? Are you thinking about proximity? By grouping similar elements together or in a close proximity, you create a relationship between those elements. Proximity also works with providing a focal point we’re giving the reader an idea of where they should focus their attention.
When I am creating I understand the proximity doesn’t mean at the elements have to be placed together, it means they should be visually connected in someway. I can use size, fabric colors, or shapes. The following picture as an example of proximity.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 1 Timothy 1:12
