About this design preview

The trick with arranging colours against a white background, especially if you want your design to catch and hold the eye, is to avoid making anything too uniform. Once your brain spots a pattern and works it out, it gets bored, whereas a seemingly-random array of coloured lines is a puzzle for the mind to try and organise.
