When you create your own typography poster, some tips will make the process and the result much better. In this article, we will give you some essential tips to make the best typography poster.
More than anything, cool typography is a combination of artistic flair and technical understanding. So, here are the tips that will help you to make a good one.
#1 Font with personality
Word art or typography is something that will deliver the message. Other than the word, the font speaks pretty loud as well. In this case, you need to choose fonts with personality and make sure that the personality supports the message you want to send.
For example, Parisienne is a font that shows an elegant appearance. It suits occasions like weddings or menu headings. On the other hand, if you prefer something more informal and feminine, Clicker Script might work well. This font is great for a birthday party invitation for teenage girls.
However, we highly recommend you to avoid fonts that look familiar because it will not make a good poster.
#2 Visual hierarchy
To create your own typography poster, you also need to create a visual hierarchy. The newspaper would be the place to take inspiration for this case. The main information should be wrapped with the boldest and biggest font. Of course, this should catch the eye.
The secondary information can be put in a sub-heading. Still, you need to make sure that the typeface is easily legible.
#3 Consistent formatting
No matter what the project is, the formatting should be consistent in so many ways. Sticking to the visual hierarchy you have created is essential. Later, you can modify it by choosing the size, style, weight for each font, and establish it as the rule. When it comes to typography poster, you better not go too small. 10-12 points are considered comfortable to read.
#4 No more than three fonts
Just like other things in designing, you cannot go too many on choosing the font types for one project. You want your project to be simple yet gorgeous and creative. On the other hand, choosing more than three types of fonts will make the poster looks confusing and scattered. Also, you better combine font with a different style so it looks artsy and readable at the same time. You do not want people to misread your poster after all. And these are a few of our tips you can try to create your own typography poster.
