Design is the new marketing magic in our world today. Anything, even if it’s useless, can make lots of money if it looks good enough. Design makes the difference between rich and poor.
But this puts a lot of pressure on designers. Yes, you can create something original and beautiful from time to time, but doing this every sing day is tough. Sometimes you don’t even want to think about a new design. So how do we tackle this problem? How can we create good designs all the time?
You got lucky today, because I got some great tips for you. Even if you are a great designer already, you should definitely check these out.
Keep It Simple
OK, you are good at designing and you got many new ideas. But sometimes too many may look bad. Try to keep your design as simple as possible. Remember: all famous designs are actually very simple and they win with this simplicity.
Fonts Are Important
What you write is very important for writers, but for designers it is the font that matters the most. Try to find the most suitable font for your work and use it. If the font does not look good, try another one. Try all the fonts till you find the right one. Fonts are important, do not underestimate their power.
Choose Your Color Wisely
You don’t have to be a famous painter like William Turner to see the importance of colors. In the world of design, sometimes colors are everything. Choose wisely.
Symmetry Is Your Friend
It may sound too simple, but playing with symmetry saves the day sometimes. Use horizontal and vertical lines at the end of the text or photos. Play with them.
Rest Your Eyes
Don’t push your limits too much. After working on your design for a while, rest your eyes a bit, grab a coffee. You will come back with many new ideas and perspectives, I promise.
Tough: Very difficult, hard
Tackle (a problem): To solve a problem, to handle it
Underestimate: Wrongly thinking something is too simple or easy
Wisely: Making the best decision, being smart
Perspective: A point of view
