Technical Process

Due to the technical requirements of this project, we are required to use NSArray and/or NSMutableArray class to create a visual composition that demonstrates my understanding of the concepts of rhythm and balance. Thus, I decided to create an iOS application with 1 button that showcases 4 minimalistic illustration design that contains rhythm and balance.

Rhythm 

In Principle of Design,  you can achieve rhythm by repeating lines, colors, textures, patterns, proportions, scale and light. 

Balance

Balance is a visual interpretation of gravity in the design. There are 3 ways that you can balance design :
