Since the beginning of time, humans have attempted to decorate the place they occupy. Their first medium of functional and aesthetic relations with place  was the walls of caves. On the one hand, utilizing aesthetics in design processes has always been a part of human experience and it constituted the foundation for interpretations and theories addressing inter-cultural communication. On the other hand, stylistic diversity of design processes, which is a necessity, requires performance skills to keep the receiver from boredom. Different shapes and their characteristics are responsible for the creative aesthetic products represented in digital arts, including Vector Art,which in turn help in attaining top intellectual and performance levels and developing knowledge through digital technology.

The present article sheds light on the aesthetic employment of stylistic diversity in digital arts. The first section discusses the problem, significance, objectives and relevant definitions of the study. Then, the theoretical framework explores the content of diversity, design style, digital arts and the concepts of function and aesthetics. In the procedure, descriptive analysis is employed  to handle a set of samples and come up with findings. Then, a number of recommendations are made as a reference to build studies which complete the cognitive series of the art of design.
