• Unity is the presentation of a unified image. It is perhaps the closest to a "rule" as art approaches.
  • Unity implies that a congruity or agreement exists between all of the elements in a design.
  • Elements that can contribute to unity in a visual communication might include elements such as colour, line, pattern, shape, texture, and size - and there are many other ways in which ou can create it.
  • The elements all look as if they belong together. It appears as if there is some visual connection beyond mere chance that has caused the elements of the piece to come together. Regardless of the media.
  • Another term for unity is harmony.
  • If the various elements in a composition are not harmonious, if they appear separate and/or unrelated, your pattern/arrangement falls apart and lacks unity.
