Graphic designing is an interesting aspect and one may think of doing his/her own graphic designs. But to start with it, one must keep in mind few basic ideas so that things do not fall apart at the beginning. I will like to share few simple tips to help you out to start producing your very own graphic designs. I am sure you will start making beautiful graphic designs in the near future by simply following the below mentioned guidelines. So lets start.
Choosing the right color scheme
Choosing the color scheme that matches with the best concept you have in mind is very important. A good concept always needs the right color as that will be the first thing that will attract your customer. There are few common themes that you can use across every design at the beginning.
Selecting the right font palette for your design
Picking the right font for your project is definitely one of the most important criteria for a successful design. Titles, headings, subheadings and body text, all must be in proper fonts matching with the theme of your project. Once you achieve this, the half of the job is done. Try to choose simpler fonts for your body text and something which stands out for headings.
Use of framing and grids in images
Images play an important role in your design and it is always a bright idea to keep the images in proper frames or grids, instead of keeping them exposed. Of course it is not always possible to use a frame, but try to use as far as possible. This will give your design a more professional outlook.
To make your designs stand out, always try to use a contrast
It is very essential to use proper contrast to make your design stand out. This can easily be done by using contrasting colors for the background and the fonts and for any other graphics you are using. A light background should have dark fonts and vice versa. It is simple as that.
Simplicity always wins
There is always a tendency to punch in as much of great graphics, fonts and images in a single design as options are plenty and it sometimes gets extremely difficult to choose from a wide range of ideas. This puzzle often makes us using unnecessary items in a single design making it cumbersome. So try to use as bare necessary items for a single design. Using everything must have a reason. The use of bare minimum types of graphics, fonts and images will ultimately produce a simple yet elegant design. Simplicity always wins.
