Make Your Text Stand Out
No matter what medium you’re designing for, you already know how important text is to create a narrative with your work. From logo design to website copy, text can help your design pop.
On the other hand, a dull text design can turn a fresh look into a bore.
Consider adding a bold text like the chrome text effect for example. What originally starts as a flat, 2-D design adds depth and excitement with a few simple strokes.
Fonts like these have an effect that has certainly evolved over time. You might consider it a dated design, but trends have brought it back in full force!
In a similar style, retro style text can be just a stylish and help add a powerful sense of theming to your design.
Play With Colors
If you like playing with colors, consider using watercolors in your Adobe Illustrator creations. Designs like these have a sense of whimsy and depth you don’t get with traditional color palettes.
What about using vectors to create a new style of portraits? When it comes to adding dimension to your designs, there are no limits to the ways you can define your style with bold strokes of color.
Add Depth By Going Flat
Your designs don’t need to be 3-Dimensional in order to stand out. In fact, flat designs are in and they can help your creations look unique and alive!
Using a combination of gradients, shapes, and blending modes, it won’t take you a lifetime to learn this quirky design style.
Looking to use your talents for advertising materials or to create a brochure for marketing clients? You can use flat design styles for digital or print work and achieve the same stylish outcome.
