It’s the cumulative effect

When creating the visual design of a UI object, such as a calendar widget within a form layout, it’s important to consider the cumulative effect of multiple subtle visual cues, as opposed to several dramatic changes in color, line weight, fonts, lighting, etc, all at once. This can help prevent imbalanced visuals that awkwardly draw too much attention or visuals that are simply overpowering, thus undermining the composition overall. So, in this era of glossy, glowy visuals with drop shadow promiscuity, it’s important to remember how subtle changes can stimulate visual perception, in an eye-pleasing manner that maintains overall balance and cleanliness.
