10 Graphic Design Tips

1. Dont Get Moved Away With Fonts
  • Font keeps a person from becoming to worry about
    tons of combinations.
  • If you are using fonts, then use one for the
    header and another for the body.

2. USE ICONS TO SUPPORT YOUR MESSAGE
  • Images are like black pepper.
  • They can be sprayed on top of whatever design you
    are cooking up, and the icons will add extra
    spice to your plan, ensuring that it tastes
    great.

3. Rinse and Repeat
  • If you are working with multiple objects across
    ad campaign, website, or another project it may
    be most convenient for you to rinse and repeat.
  • Then copy your design and then swap out the
    elements you need to be changed.

4. Take Advantage of Contrasts
  • Using contrasts helps to add attitude to
    design, as well as make certain elements stand
    out.
  • There are plenty of ways to create contrasts too.
  • A person can use contrasting colors, fonts, or
    even contrast amounts of space between items in
    your design.

5. Use One Or Two Line To Create A Sense of Order
  • Lines help to keep items in an image and generate
    the sense that there is an overall order.
  • Use lines in your image by placing them around
    blocks of text thereby securing the version.
  • A person can also put lines as separators
    between different elements in the image.

6. Plan your design
  • Rather than having a plan as the first step, the
    average non-designer only starts to think
    severely about their plans for a design.
  • Later they are well into the planning process.
  • The planning stage doesnt need much time.

7. Add Text Over Images By Changing Brightness
Levels
  • When design requires putting version over
    pictures, adjust the brightness level of the
    background picture.
  • This way the background image will balance the
    colour of the text, causing the text to be clear
    and the design to look still clean and bright.

8. Carefully Structure Your Body Copy
  • Whenever you have a body of paragraphs, each line
    should have no more than around 30-40 characters.
  • That covers spaces too, so choose correctly.
  • If you exceed this estimated length, you run the
    risk of sentences fitting hard for readers to get
    into.

9. Think About Who You Are Designing For
  • Never forget that who that you are creating
    designing for.
  • This ensures you that your design something that
    the expected audience for your design to see and
    something they will react favourably to.

10. Keep It Simple
  • If you overload it with too many special effects
    like shadows and tone gradients, you will quickly
    move toward a bloated and aesthetically reduced
    image.

Conclusion
  • As you can notice, graphic design doesnt have to
    be difficult.
  • Just follow these ten tips, and you will be well
    on your way to producing great images.
