They have used also as a guide to the viewer from point A to point B on the image. Or to make other elements to follow a specified path, that in turn allows the viewers to understand the design better.


They offer huge features, adding creativity to support all other contents in the layout. The shapes fill spaces very creatively and balance the whole design. Shapes don’t need any extra effort and can be created anywhere to give the design clarity.
