Like postcard design that I mentioned in my last article, poster is also an important part of advertising. For any business or organization, it has always been one of the powerful marketing tools to convey messages. For instance, posters can be designed for brand campaigns, movies, nightclubs, events, or invitations. No matter what kind of poster is, designers should make sure that the poster design look informative and eye-catching. Then it can draw viewers’ attention at the first glance and encourage them to act on it.
Poster design gives designers a large enough room for creativity. It is a great way to experiment with different kinds of design. You may focus on creative typography, unique shapes, joyful colors, appealing graphics or textures.
Some Basics and Tips to Get You Started
As poster is a visual presentation of information to reach a large number of people, your poster designs should be taken seriously.
Effective design starts with careful thinking. You need to determine the purpose of the poster design. Make sure what information you want to give to your audience and what the emotion you are trying to convey.
While designing a poster, the message counts much. To accomplish the right communication of a message, posters should be designed with different information hierarchies. For example, you may start with most important information and go down to less important details with a clear flow from introduction to conclusion. Just focus on your major part and make sure that the message you want to highlight in the poster will stand out from the others.
To make your poster designs attention-grabbing, aesthetics of the poster matter a lot. You my use catchy graphs, tables, diagrams and images where appropriate. Here, the colors also play a vital role. The number of colors being used is less important than the way they are used. For instance, if the products or services convey a serious and decent tone, you cannot put highly colorful layout for the poster.
