Rhythm is defined as a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound. It’s created when one or more elements of design are used repeatedly to create a feeling of organized movement. Rhythm and movement are two principles that almost always coincide in design.

Rhythm achieved through linear elements, alternating elements, gradation, repetition, or intricate details. Integrating rhythm in a design should be approached carefully – too subtle and it may not be noticed, or too much can cause the viewer to lose interest.

Here are a few designs for examples of rhythm!
