Graphic design is a creative activity that aims to project objects that are useful and aesthetic. This is a very busy career, and is evolving and gathering adepts all over the world even though the career may be demanding and very creative.
There are many young people (and not so young people as well) who are starting studies in the graphic design world. Here we share some tips about graphic design that every starting designer should know:
The Use of Fonts
The fonts give a lot of personality to the design that is trying to be created. There are many models, designed specifically for every mood you want to transmit with the final product. But you should try to use more than one font, to give more emphasis to the design, if you have several types of writings going around. But you must place the fonts correctly, in paragraphs or different parts, not all together.
Many designs use a white background, so you can highlight the design you want to make. There are many brands that use these types of designs, because they always try to get the attention of the customers with a white and clean background and a popping image.
Currently, bright colors are the ones being used to attract attention. It’s a tactic that is being used in many designs, which undoubtedly receive a lot of attention from young people. Therefore, do not be afraid to use any color, so take the risk, and try new ones. The bright colors are a good option (depending on the design), but you must practice a few combining techniques to improve your taste and develop a design style.
You should always be practicing and doing different sketches, do not work with the first option or a single idea. Try to develop the ideas you have through several sketches and then choose the best one. Currently there are many applications or programs that can be used on a computer and are easy to use.
The Importance of Images
The images, in any design, whether it’s an illustration or simple photo, it’s very important to use them in the design to make it look more attractive, and get more attention from the audience. Remember, a picture talks more than words.
