30 Amazing Graphic Design Tips Professional

1. Limit the number of fonts you use

This may be the most commonly encountered tip I received from the designers I spoke with. They highly encourage that you use different fonts in one design, but do not over-exaggerate and go overboard.

You always want to make sure that your fonts work well together and try to limit the number of fonts you use to three or less. Experiment and play around with the fonts that you already have in the software you’re working with, or you can always download free ones from reputable font websites.

2. Change the size and height of your text to make it fit perfectly on your design

You can always play around with the text that is overlaid on an image. You can increase or decrease the line-height and spacing of letters to create a “box effect”. In this image, you can see that the line height has been reduced significantly, and the size was brought up exponentially.

Make sure that the placement of your text is pleasing to look at, and you try to achieve symmetry for this effect. I also decreased the transparency in the text so that the mountains come through the text, bringing the quote truly to life.

3. Use contrasting fonts to stick out—they make the perfect pair

When designing, the goal is to draw someone’s attention and portray to them what you’re trying to say. You can make a big statement by using little tricks, like this one. Use contrasting fonts. For example, you can use a bold sanserif font with a cursive, romantic font to show people the mood of the text.

4. Don’t be afraid to go BIG

When choosing elements for your design, remember: larger objects attract more attention than smaller objects. If you’re using multiple elements, make sure that your principal object is larger than the others, as the eye of your viewer will automatically be drawn to the larger of the two objects. Scale all elements of your design: text, elements, buttons, everything.
