Ever wonder how perfectly curated flay lays come to be? The process of how flat lays are designed and organized can seem overwhelming but we promise it’s not. We’re covering three basic flat lay ideas and how to style them!
This type of flat lay is based on a grid! The straight lines and perfectly positioned elements create a visually appealing set up. When styling flat lays like this pay attention to the details. Line all your straight edges up perfectly, and make sure to evenly space your objects.
As implied, these flat lays have a central object around which all others are placed. Keep in mind that the eye is drawn to the center of the composition so only showcase what is most important in the center of your flat lay! You can then use the objects around the central figure to give viewers details about your product or use elements that match them in tone and texture.
This flat lay is all about organized chaos! It is the perfect balance of styled and scattered. It's busy but not overwhelming. When styling this type of flat lay, movement and a little bit of unpredictability are key. Feel free to place objects partly out of frame, these elements add visual interest. Also, organize your elements by color and don’t be afraid to group different kinds of objects together - as with this example of food and accessories!
