Design Value: Order

If cleanliness is indeed next to godliness, order can’t be far behind. As a design value, order is present when all elements are arranged so that their relative importance and relationships to one another are apparent. The importance of order in supporting the interface’s more fundamental behavioral and structural aspects cannot be overstated. When a page is ordered, it has the overall appearance of neatness, precision, and thoughtfulness.

Although order is an easy quality to recognize, being able to consistently produce and create order requires an understanding and mastery of the principles of grouping, hierarchy, alignment, and balance. Independently, these principles can improve any layout. Working in concert, they can produce a truly superior design.
