You’re beginning your journey in design , but you need to learn the basics. Don’t worry, we’re here to help!



First let’s discuss colour, which is impactful on design. For example, red shows emotion, passion etc, whilst blue is more cool, peaceful. Think about what you’re designing and what you’re trying to get across from the image.


You then need to think about shape. Shapes with angles indicate masculinity,  an example – triangles and squares. On the other hand curved shapes tend to indicate femininity. Circles are pleasing to the eye.


Are you going for straight lines or curved lines? Thick or thin, so much again to think about. This is where you test out different versions, as a thicker line can be more impactful to the eye.
