Are you in Marlboro and interested in how to design graphics and print online? If so, you don’t necessarily need to know how to use complicated graphic design software like Photoshop, but there are a few things you should take note of to make sure that your prints look great.

5 important elements of a successful graphic design

  • Shape. Shapes are one of the oldest and most essential components of any graphic design project. Shapes help to create patterns and layouts as well as give you a starting point from which to build on other elements.
  • Line. Using lines in your design is vital in order to create form and direct the eye. Lines are also crucial for the division of space, as well as a form of expression.
  • Colour. The use of colour within the graphic design sphere is endless. Colour can change the feel and message of any media material, grabbing attention, evoking emotion and altering other design elements.
  • Imagery. The entire point of graphic design is to create a feast for the eyes, and so images, artwork and even fonts for text should be carefully considered before being factored into the design.
  • Texture. This refers to both literal texture (the choice of paper or card) as well as visual texture created by images with multiple layers, variety of colours and text.

When these elements are combined and implemented in an original and artistic way, your marketing materials will communicate effectively with your target audience.
