5 Graphic Design Hacks that'll Make You a PRO Designer Overnight!

03.04.2020

1. Pair Contrasting Fonts

Pairing fonts is one of the most common areas that stumps people who are starting out with graphic design. A great rule of thumb is to choose fonts with high contrast. This will help the fonts balance each other out while still creating a feature in your design.

 

2. Match Colors Within Your Designs

Creating color harmony is one of the most effective ways to make your designs stand out. You can find the exact color from an image using a color picker tool, which will provide you with a hex code -- the six digit code that identifies an exact color on the color wheel. Hex codes are an important concept for graphic design newbies to learn. They’re what you’ll use to construct all the color palettes for your designs!

 

3. Illustrate Information with Shapes & Icons

Many people are surprised at how much they can accomplish using shapes & icons. From creating informative infographics to a unique text holder, this is an important skill which helps you think outside the box & create original designs. Shapes & icons are great tools to use when creating interesting & informative social media posts, or if you want to wow your boss during a company presentation.

 

4.Crop Images to Maximize Copy Space

Copy space refers to empty areas within images.

When searching for background images, look for ones with ample copy space that you can use to overlay text. Or, to create more white space, try enlarging your images.

 

5. Choose Consistent Elements to Enhance Your Branding

Consistency is one of the important skills brands must master when using colors, fonts, logos & images. This helps achieve visual recognition -- which is an important element of your company’s communication with the world.
