Continuity

Continuity2 Organizing design elements into a visual flow of connections.
Physical Continuity: physically connected elements will lead the eye through a composition. Imagine a fallen line of domino pieces.
Visual Continuity: the eye flows across an open area and connects two or more elements. Especially found when the contours of various objects share the same axis. Frequently called alignment. Imagine the same line of domino pieces standing in line, before their collapse.
