How to Convey Movement

Sometimes a layout really needs to convey a sense of motion. There are lots of ways to do that and in this layout I used a few because the theme of my layout was riding a bike.

rk sc look momThere are a few elements that I think really convey a sense of motion on this layout. First, the Basic Grey radio waves paper, you can almost see it moving across the page.


Arrows are also great for directing a viewer’s eye.


And of course the visual triangle (here made with the Bella Blvd washi tape) moves the eye around the page creating movement.


Finally, multiple pictures from different perspectives (in some photos the bike is close and others it is further away) also creates a sense of motion. If the theme of your layout is motion or your focus is on people who are on the go, how do you portray that on a page?
