Graphic design students can be educated through different methods and approaches to create forms and turn them into artworks within a particular order. However, being able to present powerful designs consisting of visual messages contextualized with an effective perception of balance and order is possible by utilizing scientific data. In this paper, information is given regarding the addressing of the issues of "balance" and "order" which are taught in basic design classes of graphic design departments. Accordingly, "The Big Bang" and the process of formation of the universe are mentioned briefly by referring to the information given; and the importance of the subject is emphasized with a proposed method of teaching lesson and by explaining the applications practiced in classes where this method is used.
