  • do you want to unlock the secrets and the golden rules for quality minimal

  • design follow along and learn the techniques that you must use to end up

  • with quality minimalistic graphic designs now one of the things that many

  • designers forget about or even ditch when working with minimal projects is

  • imagery content now when people think of minimal design they often think of

  • wide-open spaces which in part is pretty true but the use of imagery in a

  • well-thought-out manner is highly effective

  • now of course not every minimal design is going to use imagery but it is a

  • great choice that can act as a focal point or a balance either symmetrically

  • or asymmetrically so as you can see on the screen now the model in the middle

  • is a focal point for the typography neatly to the bottom left of her create

  • some kind of balance as does the content to the far left now coupled with open

  • space this is an awesome minimalist landing page design when picking imagery

  • for your designs look for photos but also that feels simple and easygoing

  • experiment with the imagery actually being in the background or maybe with a

  • low opacity or even a blend mode

  • font selection is vastly important but even more so for minimal design that's

  • because on minimal design there's not many design elements

  • competing for attention so a minimal design it needs to feature clean and

  • readable typography to be most effective the trick here is to develop a font

  • palates with one or two font families and then create some hierarchy between

  • them essentially contrasting and font pairing because there is so little in

  • the way of design elements don't be afraid to play with the main

  • attention-grabbing text editing it and seeing what creative twists you can

  • apply all the while making sure it's still legible in minimal design the

  • typography can be used as the focal point if done correctly and remember

  • typography is a key element in minimal graphic design and it should be treated

  • with the utmost care more so than usual

  • your choice of colors in a minimal design should be as simple as a

  • typography selection black on white can be your base colors yeah and you're

  • gonna argue black or white it's not color but you know what I mean but black

  • and white doesn't have to be the only colors that you choose for your scheme

  • some designers do fall into that trap also try to pick one color to draw the

  • design forward that matches the message and also the theme of the design you can

  • also consider maybe using colors to act as a focal point in some way as you can

  • see here with the red circle the driving color of your choice can be bright or

  • light and it can serve as anything from a background texture to even an accent

  • think about the key message of the design as what is the overall feeling in

  • the mood the color choice is going to reflect the message and the mood and it

  • also should compliment a typeface style too now quick tip for using color on a

  • minimal design is to use high contrast so use colors that are obviously very

  • different and Stark when set against each other as you can see on screen now

  • cleaning out the closet of your minimal graph the design is really important

  • after all it is a minimal design so it basically needs the bare essentials and

  • also it needs to be practical as well as visually appealing think about each

  • element individually does it serve a purpose that's going to create a better

  • journey for the user or is it just pure decoration

  • if the answer is pure decoration then you might want to rethink whether or not

  • the element should be part of your design minimal design is refined down to

  • the key essentials and it uses those essentials as the artistic attention

  • grabbers

  • now finally one key Golden Rule for minimal design is balance for every bold

  • or heavy element on your design look for a way to balance it with shape space or

  • light elements to establish harmony in the overall design so notice on this

  • design how the image in the center rides then has some text off to the left

  • creating a degree of balance also in the upper right corner the logo is in case

  • in a square which is a repetition of the geometric shape below which again

  • supplies a discrete form of balance then on the second design you can see the Sun

  • peeking over the here on the top left of the poster which is one of the focal

  • points however to balance this out the text content has been placed in the

  • bottom rights very neatly indeed but yet furthermore the top half the design is

  • lights and the bottom half is quite dark so all in all this is a very well

  • balanced minimal graphic design many minimal graphic design projects can be

  • text-heavy leaving to some really dominating

  • elements and spaces establishing a counterbalance to that weight is

  • important to keep the design from feeling lopsided boy overwhelming now
