Do you create your own designs for social media and online platforms? If you do not have a background in design, this could mean that you are compromising the appearance of your branding. But we can’t all afford to outsource every little graphic that we need to churn out!
So you need to be aware of some basic design rules. Here are 3 common DIY design mistakes that I see regularly …
- POOR COLOUR CHOICE. Take care when choosing colours that complement each other and have contrast and readability.
- USING TOO MANY DIFFERENT FONTS. Using too many conflicting fonts looks messy and hard to read, limit it to 1 or 2!
- TOO MUCH TEXT. People have short attention spans when scrolling through social media, so keep it short and to the point.
