Designers can get creative by creating their own designs that are as simple as possible.
A new study has found that many designers don’t realize that simple designs can be a great way to make a statement, inspire a community or just look cool.
Here are 10 simple and effective ways to start.
Make a minimalist design With a minimal design, you have a much smaller window of opportunity to add anything.
Instead of having a larger canvas, the only real window is the time that it takes to draw it.
To illustrate the point, imagine drawing a rectangle on paper that you know to be 100% flat.
Then you can start from scratch and make your design.
A minimalist design means a minimal canvas, or you can draw a rectangle at the exact same point on paper, with no space between the lines.
Take a simple approach with simple fonts And the next thing to keep in mind is that simplicity is the key.
Designers need to be able to see the bigger picture when it comes to design.
If they see an icon, they’ll naturally think about that icon.
So it’s important to find the best approach for your design and try to take the simplest possible approach, whether that means a simple font, a color palette or even a design with just a few lines.
Use color to emphasize a design A great way of expressing design ideas is by using color to highlight them.
The color of a design can give a designer a feeling of completeness and simplicity, or it can be something as subtle as a shade of green.
The most common color for an icon is green, which can be found in many of the major color schemes, from the iconic blue of Apple’s iconography to the bold orange of the logo of Microsoft.
Use a background design for a design’s main body A great tool to add some depth and interest to a design is to use a background that’s already been created.
This is especially helpful for designers who want to make the design look like something that is on display or even in a design project.
For example, if you have an icon that’s in the form of a circle, it’s easier to use the outline of the icon, which gives a sense of size and density.
Add a splash screen for a logo and use it to announce a design It’s a good idea to add a splash page for a product or product features that’s not a part of the design.
Using a splash image is often easier than a regular design element because it’s easy to see, and if it’s used correctly, it can make the difference between a good design and a bad one.
Make the design a part on its own If you have multiple designs, make them as separate elements, such as a logo, main body, icon, text, etc. These can then be combined to create a cohesive design.
Here’s how to do this.
First, draw a line from the top of the main body to the bottom of the image.
This gives you an idea of how many different ways you can add elements to the design, as well as how many elements are in common.
Then draw a vertical line to the top left corner of the top half of the primary image.
You can then make it a part at the top right corner of your image.
If you’re creating a splash area, draw that part at a distance from the main image.
Then add the bottom part of your design to the background.
Finally, add the top part of a secondary image to the main or splash area.
Make sure the design is centered and doesn’t overlap with any other elements If your design has many elements that are all overlapping, you may not be able a clear line from one element to the next.
That’s because there are so many elements in the design that are not related to each other, or that are connected to each others.
To make your designs more fluid, make sure you don’t overlap any elements with the rest of your designs.
That means the design can be centered in the main design or it may be positioned to the side of the background, and that can be done with the help of a ruler.
Use background colors to convey design ideas The easiest way to convey your design’s personality is to make sure the colors are balanced.
For instance, use a color that makes you think of a place, and a color of blue that you think would be appropriate for the background of a house.
A good rule of thumb is to create the background as a gradient from bright colors, such that it’s always clear where the colors start and end.
For a design, that means using a gradient color with a solid color, such the blue of a garden or a green with the orange of a lake.
Make an icon or logo for your project to be your icon or product The last thing you want to do when you’re starting out is to have to draw a design or logo from scratch
