Design has the power to evoke all kinds of emotions on a subconscious level. That’s why it’s important to carefully think about the images, color, and font that you want for your project. Posters for instance, are meant to be displayed in public, whether it’s in print or digital. Thus, you need something that’s big, eye-catching, yet still maintains readability.
The choice of color and font can make or break your concept. If you’re making a horror movie poster for example, something dark or edgy should evoke fear. On the other hand, a billboard ad for food needs something simple yet striking.
Looking for the right poster fonts? You’ve come to the right place.
