Graphic designing is one of the rising designations, more and more companies are giving priority to aesthetics and overall theme, the job of a graphic designer, is to fulfil those needs. Being a graphic designer is relatively easy, you need to have some creativity and designing software. Let us look at some of the most useful tips for beginners:
Selecting the Appropriate Fonts
When we choose a font, we must make sure that the font is clear and legible and easy to read. We must also make sure that the font goes along well with the rest of the theme and the colour palette. We shouldn’t restrict ourselves to one font, instead, experiment with a set of fonts and select the one that is appropriate.
When we have a basic layout done, and we integrate different parts of our design, we should analyse the whole workspace and see if things come together. This time should be taken to align the texts with the shapes and change the colour within the foreground and the background.
Minimalism is one of the rising design trends nowadays, and most of the companies want their information shared graphically, minimally. When we experiment with minimalism, we should have a good sense of text alignment and colour selection. Oversaturated and washed out colours should be avoided and replaced with easy to assess ones.
When we are given a theme and a basic layout, we should start getting inspiration to fuel our creativity. The most popular ones that budding and professional designer refer to are Pinterest, Tumblr and Behance. Avoid plagiarism and try to import the right elements.
When we use images for our work, we should make sure that the images chosen are consistent throughout. Consistency in lighting, framing, composition, colour and so on. These images should amalgamate and create a meaning for the whole design.
Alignment is one of the most critical factors in graphics designing. The viewer can easily identify improper alignment as our subconscious is prone to misalignments. Whatever design we choose and apply we should always make sure that it is in symmetry. A well composed and aesthetic design can go a long way.
When we research on the designs, we should be specific about what we want, and dig further into it. We should have a clear map in our head of what the result should be and construct each of that designs aspects with detailed research.
Proper Colour Cohesion
The colours that we use should be in perfect cohesion with each other. We should keep in mind that not all colours go with each other, there is a specific set of colours that are in coherence and aesthetically pleasing.
White space is often overlooked by beginners; we should realise that this provides a very beautiful feel and is pleasing to the eyes, one significant example of this is Apple. Whitespace is often called the design of the future.
