Stuff Designers Do – The Horizon Line

In designs where there is a horizon, the horizon line must be taken into consideration.  Having the horizon line in the middle of a photo creates a boring layout.  The designer must determine wether they want more emphasis on the ground or sky in their design.  Dropping or raising the horizon line to a third of the document creates a sky definition or a ground definition.  This idea in design could be applied to my own designs when I am creating a work that includes a horizon, and I want to make the layout more interesting.
