A little something to help you get started.
“Design is more than a logo. Design is a strategy made visible.” - Moira Cullen
You may have heard of the rule of thirds before, it is a simple concept that is seen in the world of design and even more so, photography. The general concept helps you to position and align your key elements to areas in your design or picture where they will draw the most attention. This allows for a clean and pleasant looking design. Here is how it works
First, you want to split your design vertically into 3 sections, drawing lines at ⅓ increments, then do the same thing horizontally. This will give you a rough shape of a hashtag (#). Now you are set-up and ready to start laying out your design elements. You will notice and use the following elements within the “hashtag” you just drew.
When designing a card, choosing the right colour combinations plays a crucial role in making your card stand out in the way you want it to! Colours can affect us in ways you might not have thought of. A vibrant red colour has been found to grab a viewers attention faster than any other colour, a blue colour has more of a calming effect on the viewer and a yellow will generate happiness in the viewer. Using a proper balance and mix of colours can deliver a message in and of itself, just always be sure to use a colour harmony that matches your brand well!
