  • ONE FONT: Play around with the font-weight to make an emphasize where you want it.
  • Use Bold for the title and Normal for the subtitle.
  • TWO FONTS: Combine any two fonts out of these three categories — serif, sans serif, and decorative.
  • Serif fonts are fonts with ending strokes or feet, expressing a classic and elegant feel.
  • Sans serif fonts are blunt with no feet and neutral in expression.
  • Decorative fonts are fun and dramatic typefaces and work best as headlines.

  • Keep it simple: One key design tip for beginner designers is simplicity. Graphics should be easy to understand. Use the minimum amount of text and fonts. Keep the colors under control and the visuals balanced.
  • Maintain visual hierarchy: Visual hierarchy is the ability to give visual importance to some elements over others. For example, headers should be larger than subheadings, and these, in turn, are larger than a box of text. When you use visual hierarchy rules, you bring attention to a key point in the design. This creates a visual balance that then starts a visual flow of information for the viewer.
  • Ensure readability: Make your text easy to read. This applies to how you overlay text on backgrounds, the colors and fonts you use for headings, and how elements relate to the text and flow of the design. Choose the best typeface for your project, which matches your message and is also easy to read. It should be easy to read over a background image or texture.
  • Limit your typefaces: When selecting a typeface or font for headings, subtitles, and body text, use easy-to-read fonts for simple and effective graphic design. The eye finds it hard to scan multiple typefaces.
  • Originality: Summon all your creative abilities and graphic design skills to achieve original graphics. Be inventive and experimental. Choose and combine varied typefaces and filters. Do not use trends. Create designs that reflect your unique style, leaving a personal stamp on your work.
