7 Must-Know Inspiration Ideas For Graphic Designers

7 Must-Know Inspiration Ideas For Graphic Designers

"Are you a beginner Graphic Designer, stepping into the world of design and art but unsure of how to find your muse?" Well, if you are the one then you've landed in the perfect place. Creativity knows no bounds, but it needs to be discovered by every designer. It doesn't matter if you're an experienced designer or a newbie, we all need sources of inspiration from time to time. So get ready to explore some of the amazing design inspirations with us that can enlighten every graphic designer's world. 1. Storytelling Through Symbolism: When working on a design concept, instead of writing all your ideas and thoughts, try to draw or sketch them. If hand sketches are not your thing, then use clip art and symbols to explain your concept for your design. For instance, for a business name that is sturdy and bold, use symbolism such as a mountain, a hammer, a rock, or a lion. Similarly, you can use Symbolism to explain the story behind your concept. It is not only a fun way to work on your project but will also help you gain inspiration for your design. 2. Typographic Theatre If symbols and drawings are not working for you, then try to experiment with typography. You can play around with the words by mixing and matching fonts, jazzing up the spacing, and creating unique symphonies to add personality and depth to your designs. Use graph paper as your stage and treat the alphabet as a musical instrument. You can experiment with writing techniques such as palindrome, anagram, calligram, etc. to get your creativity flowing. 3. Learn From The Masters: All masters were learners once, so if you are wondering how they did it, try studying their work. Draw inspiration from history’s greatest artists such as Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Leonardo Di Caprio, etc., and delve deep into their works. Engulf yourself with art and visit museums, virtual or physical, and try to enhance your artistic taste buds. You can see all the artwork displayed in the world’s famous museums such as the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Van Gogh Museum, Vatican Museums, the State Hermitage Museum, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and so on. The list is endless! The best part is that you don’t have to even leave the comfort of your cozy seats. Use the online websites of the museums and experience the virtual tours. Who knows someday you might end up exclaiming ‘Eureka’ too! 4. Tour Different Eras: The past and history are timeless teachers, not just for the history buffs but for the designers too. You can switch to the 90s, 80s, and 70s, and even go all the way back to the Middle Ages to find inspiration for your next piece. Discover different art forms and how one type of art influenced an entire nation and its architecture. Browse through the art movements such as Rococo, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Victorian, Minimalism, Pop Art, etc., and immerse yourself into the metaverse of art and design. 5. Color Palette: You can also experiment with colors if all else fails. Color palettes and color theory are great ways to start your conceptual designs. This way you can focus only on the colors of your project without stressing yourself about the rest of the designs. Colors are a great way to explore your creativity and open up your brain's creative corners. Revisit the color theories you have studied in the past or if you haven’t studied them before, start from the basics today. You never know you might end up seeing sparkling colors at the end of the tunnel! Pro-tip: A great tool that can help you get inspired with color palettes is Color Mind. With the help of this tool, you can choose a starting color and generate varying color pallets based on it. 6. Design Communities & Social Media Platforms: As a dedicated member of the graphic design world, you should consistently follow all the popular design communities and social media platforms. This way, you can study the latest trends in design and keep yourself updated with the world of art. If you are a graphic designer, don’t limit yourself to graphic design only. Follow different design forms such as architecture, interior design, products, sculptures, etc. Platforms such as Behance, Dribbble, Instagram, and Pinterest are a great way to bombard yourself with the art and design community. These will not only help you get inspiration for your projects, but you can also share your work, study other’s work, and get reviews from your fellow designers. Graphic design brands such as Pentagram, Landor, Mucho, M/M Paris, Ueno, MetaDesign, etc. are only a handful of names from the long, never-ending list of graphic design brands that can help inspire your next project. Follow the most successful designers on social media and see what they are up to. 7. Make AI Your Assistant: If all else fails and you are desperate for some quick source of inspiration, you can turn to AI tools. There is no doubt the biggest news of 2023 has been the advent of AI tools. While some are busy fearing that AI might take over their jobs, the smartest people on earth are embracing these tools and utilizing them to maximize their potential. AI tools if used as a helping hand, can help you inspire your designs and break the art block you are stuck in. Tools such as Artbreeder, Deep Dream Generator, & DALL-E can prove fruitful if used cleverly. Some tools offer limited free features so be mindful of this fact and use them cautiously. Important note: Never copy anything entirely, as it might discourage your creative skills in the long run and damage your artistic reputation! Use these tools as an inspiration and don’t cheat! P.S. Google's Quick, Draw! is a fun tool that you can use to sharpen your artistic senses. It provides small art prompts and gives you 20 seconds to draw an object which is a great exercise for all artistic brains. Final Words If you follow any of these practical design ideas and make them a part of your daily routine, you will be able to unlock your full design potential. These tips can also help you free yourself from the chains of your art block and think creatively. By tapping into the sea of the sources mentioned above, you can boost your creativity, push the boundaries of your designs, and make them stand out. Always keep in mind that creativity is a journey unique to every individual, it can neither be stolen nor be copied from others. But it can be polished and harnessed from within yourself. So try some of the tips that have been shared with you today and share your ideas and thoughts with us. Author: Sara Musawar | Reviewed by: Zonaira Ali

2023 Digital Marketing Trends: Unleash Your Business Potential!
Aug 03, 2023

2023 Digital Marketing Trends: Unleash Your Business Potential!

"Ready to boost your business and skyrocket your revenues in 2023?” Look no further because we got you covered with these amazing strategies to boost your sales and maximize your revenue. Discover the 5 killer digital marketing trends that savvy marketers are using to maximize their sales this year. Get ahead of the competition and secure your spot at the top! 1. Story Telling There is nothing new about the concept of storytelling to sell products. Marketers have been using this strategy since ages to promote their brands. However, what really has changed is that the story now spins around the customer rather than the product. This shift may not sound immensely substantial but when potential customers experience this shift of spotlight it ticks them greatly. This helps in winning their confidence. Just like Apple brands itself by telling a story that revolves around the protagonists. In their latest advertisements they display the fast dynamic shots which places the physical product in second place while the focus stays on the customer's energetic and lively actions. This is surely everything right about there marketing. 2. Simply Killer Content “Content is the king”. These were the golden words of Bill Gates in 1996. The idea still stands true as ever. More precisely we can say that “The simple and quality Content is the king”. Why? Because in this day and age, internet sites are flooded with content. When a user searches for something, he wants complete information that is easy to understand. Frankly, nobody is there on your site to resolve puzzles or to learn vocabulary. Give them the information that they need in the most understandable, simplest way possible. A complicated way of delivering the message is no longer considered creative. Use simple words and avoid complexities. Understand the fact that you are targeting an audience to sell your brand. So the basic takeaway here is: • Be Straightforward • Engage your audience with Clear and Compelling language • Hit the Emotions to Turn Readers into compulsive buyers Many digital marketing experts also believe that clear content is the key to the effective reach of the general public. Having said that simplicity doesn’t mean compromising the quality. If you want to make your website an authority then you must focus on the quality of the content that you are producing. By quality, we mean to give all the information that the viewer is seeking in an interesting and easy way. The quantity of the information does not matter but the quality does. So, make sure you focus on simple, knowledgeable, and engaging content. 3. Short-form Videos: Short-form videos are considered a highly impactful marketing trend these days. Our attention spans have reduced. The demand for snackable content and platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook reels have skyrocketed. Viewers love to consume a big chunk of information in a short space of time. Here are some important stuff you would like to know about short-form videos • According to some estimations short form, on-the-go digital videos will reach 82.2% of the internet users in the Asian-pacific region alone. • These have a high capacity to convey a lot of information in a small duration through images, speech, and text. • These ensure accessibility and inclusivity. The availability of subtitles and captions has included hearing-impaired viewers. They can simply enjoy the videos while getting the marketing message without any hearing aid. 4. Accessibility According to experts, nearly 2 billion people in the whole world are suffering from some sort of disability with a total disposable income of $1.9 trillion. How can you expect your business to flourish if you pay no heed to their needs and overlook the concept of inclusiveness? Accessibility consultant of businesses “Svetlana Kouznetsova”, who happens to be deaf also agrees that people with disabilities are the world’s largest minorities, and their needs are mostly ignored by the brands. In her own words: “If our needs are ignored, businesses will lose not only us, but also our family, friends, and colleagues that make up another 3.4 billion potential customers,” she said. “Together we control $13 trillion.” 5. First-Party Data Collection Wake up, Digital marketers! The cookies are dying, and we are not talking about the cookie monster from Sesame Street here. Google has announced that it will deprecate third-party cookies by 2024. This happened after the implementation of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) law. In other words, all the data about the likes and dislikes of the website visitors that helps marketers understand the behavior of the customer which aids in targeting the relevant ads to the right audiences is getting blocked. To maintain the competitive edge marketers are hoping to collect their first-party data. You can either sit back and relax or you can start collecting the data too to execute your personalized campaigns. So how do you collect the first-party data? The solution is “Interactive Content”. This is different from your general content or a blog post. This is not just about the information that you are providing. The approach is to be interactive and to collect their information too. In this kind of content, you ask your website visitors their preferences and choices. You can make a fun survey to engage your visitors and understand their needs. Here are some examples of the interactive content that can be applied to your website : • Quizzes • Surveys • Multi-step forms As a result, you can not only provide them with exactly what they need at the moment but also you can target them in the future with the right ads and campaigns. The Takeaway You can easily hop onto some of these trends to boost your business sales right now. Also, keep an eye on others to keep yourself updated regarding the challenges the future marketing is going to face. Remember the sooner you start applying these strategies to bring the change, the better it would be for your business. Author: Maleeha Batool | Reviewed by: Zonaira Ali
