In the previous article we has learn about The Elements in Graphic Design. Maybe you are still confused and ask, “About the design I made, if one of the elements does not exist, is it not including a design?

So vice versa, whether a wooden house can be called a house? Of course the answer could be. Because at this time in general house using wooden wall. Even today there is a house without the use of stone and wood, but using glass, iron and aluminum as a rodent!
