Lines in Graphics Designing

Check brochures, advertiesments,  graphics, logos and other print media for lines,
Lines help us to
• organize
• texturize
• guide the eye
• provide movement
• make a statement
  • Lines can be long or short, straight or curved.
  • Lines can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
  • Lines can be solid, dashed, thick, thin, or have a variable width
  • Lines can have different endings

Look as many as printed media to find as many different types of lines
