Images That Inspire Us:
Choose images that reflect your demographic and embrace diversity. Look for images that are hopeful and bright. Avoid images that could make your audience feel sad or hopeless.
Draw attention to the most important peeve of your design by utilizing size. Make sure no two elements are the same size, so they don’t compete with one another.
A Note: In this blog we have created hierarchy by making our headlines large and having our body text smaller. This allows for readability.
