Want to Learn Graphic Design? 5 Tips and Tricks for Beginners

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2021

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics by 2020 there will be a 13% increase in the demand for graphic designers of all kinds. The main reason behind this demand is the rise of bushiness online in recent years all thanks to the internet.   

However, Graphic design can be a tough job for beginners with no previous experience. One thing to keep in mind is not expect to become a graphic designer expert in a month. Don’t set high expectations and try to achieve one goal at a time.

So, if you are planning to become a professional graphic designer as per required by many Graphic design firms or for own business, start your journey by following more specific, simpler steps as mentioned below:

1)    Choosing the Right Colors

Choose and use colors wisely as it can distract or leave an impact on viewers. Go for the colors that grasp the mood you aim for or are associated with your company in some way. For example, green reminds people of peace, freshness, and nature, while deep blue can be mystical, intriguing, or even depressing. Make sure you know what message you wish to convey. Analyze how cohesive the design is and try to achieve the same impression.

2)  Right Composition of Contrast

Contrast defines different sections, highlight important sections or words. Contrast guides a reader in where to look first, or what is important. If you have your big offer in the same color, typeface, and font size as the rest of the content, the readers’ eyes will not be drawn to it, nothing is setting it apart. Contrast is what allows you to make something stand out and it should be used in every composition.

3) Consistent Quality of Images

You need to make sure the quality of images throughout your design remains consistent. The style, proportions, framing, lighting, and quality of these elements should remain constant throughout your design. Don’t cheat your viewers by mixing your own photos and the photos that you purchased from the stocks as it shows inconsistency from your side.  

4) Select the Right Fonts

A design that is clear and readable is what that will attract viewers. In order to achieve that balance it is important to not to restrict your designs to one font only. Try to experiment with different styles of fonts and stick to a unique font style for your current project you are focusing. Explore different opportunities, instead of picking those dull default fonts.

5) Maintain a Visual Balance

Balance is the placement of elements in a graphic design that compliment one another.  Remember, everything in your composition has a visual weight to it. Having balance doesn’t mean you can’t have a focal point, it shows how smartly you arrange elements that matches how people naturally scan and read a page that will result in a better looking design.

Top Secrets Revealed (Part-2): How to Launch Your App Successfully

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2020

The total app publishers on Google Play are estimated to be around 906,717k+ worldwide out of which 26,841 are Indian, 165,502 are US publishers, and so on. Being a mobile application developer, it is tough at times to make a mark in the growing apps industry. Developing & launching an application is always challenging and there are always countless app-killing issues that must be paid attention to.  
 
The demand of the market and competition, the app launch plan must be analyzed to reduce the chances of app launch failures and make your application stand out. 
 
In the last blog, we put a light on two success stories that have a big impact on mobile application development and developers. The other two positive & successful experiences are as follows: 
 
 

Snapchat: Word of Mouth

 
With 53.5 million downloads, Snapchat today is the most popular multimedia messaging application. It all started with an idea of creating a platform for sharing a moment with friends & family that goes disappear in seconds. In 2011, after the app was launched it hardly grabbed the attention of 100 users, but later the widespread use of word of mouth increased the users to 100,000 by 2012. As the concept was unique, hence turning into reality was challenging initially. The targeted audience for Snapchat was 18-24 years, therefore the app featured many exciting Emojis, Filters, Stories, Chats, Our Story, Geofilters, etc. $100 million were spent to integrate Bitmojis in Snapchat. 
 

The growing popularity of the app made owners think more about adding innovative features and more additive properties to Snapchat. 

 

Tinder:   Marketing & Promoting 

 
In today’s dating world, Tinder has made the biggest sensation. Tinder came into 2012 to transform the online dating experiences and now it has 50 million active user profiles. In a couple of launch weeks, Tinder got 1000 downloads. It was a unique concept to find love online just with a left and right swipe. The app got huge acceptance worldwide due to its striking features, functionality like Swipes, Super Likes, Tinder Plus, Chat, and more. When everything seemed to be going great, the spark of the Tinder lost due to its terrible interface and no innovation to the application. However, with new features like Safety buttons, Video Chat, ‘Dating During Pandemic’, and more Tinder has won the hearts again. There are many more features like Prompts, 'Share to Matches', Likes You, Noonlight Timeline, and Photo Verification that are in stock for Tinder users and most likely to be added to the app soon. 
 

Final Thoughts 

 
For survival and expanding customer-base, businesses must have mobile applications to deliver goods & services for a delightful experience. We always need the inspiration to succeed in life and in the case of mobile app development, the success cases direct us and help learn from their mistakes. The mobile app development trends are rising and today many professional mobile app development companies are developing robust apps using Xamarin, Visual Studio, and PhoneGap.
