Tips for Creating a Poster

When creating a poster, there are a few design tips one must keep in mind. These tips can help produce a great poster that will reach many people.

Determine Your Focus

The whole point of a poster is to show off your business, product, band, movie, or other product. This should be your main focus. Choose something that represents what you are trying to sell. If you are selling a car, then that car should be within the main graphic. If you are promoting a band, then make sure the band name or their logo is what people will focus on. You want to draw people’s attention in to look at your poster in depth. The easiest way to do this is with something recognizable and captivating.

Have Fun, But Don’t Go Crazy

No one wants to look at a dull and boring poster or banner. Customers want something exciting and eye-catching. This may mean you have something funny in the front seat of the poster’s car; or some dangerous creature about to attack the band. It is okay to have funny or capturing images, as well as colors, words, and graphics. If it works with the poster and what you are promoting, then go for it. However, you can easily take this too far. Before you send anything to the printers, take a step back and wait for a little while. Something that seemed funny in the moment, may not be as funny on a large poster.

Consider the Font and Colors

You cannot forget your customers during this poster-designing process. Make sure your font and colors are complementary to the rest of the poster. If your font is really crazy or hard to read, customers will not read your poster. If you have eyesore colors or mismatching hues, customers are likely to look away before reading the poster. Be careful with your fonts and colors before sending the finished product to the printers.
