We’re on a mission to make design easier! Every week, we answer a question from our Design Hotline— an Instagram line where we walk you through your biggest design questions! Here’s a submission we recently answered.
But what happens when you have text and image to work with?
In this example, the newsletter needs a bit more balance to the layout, so we started by swapping a few of the “heavy” items so that they weren’t all on one side of the page.
Then, we changed some of the colors to be either lighter or darker to remedy a left-heavy design on the bottom.
Ta-da! The newsletter is now much lighter and the elements look more balanced.
Stuck on a design project and want to submit a question to The Design Hotline? Follow me on Instagram @NicoleAYang and send me a DM with your question. Remember — send me a photo or screenshot of the project you’re working on. Depending on the volume of requests I receive not all submissions will be answered. By submitting, you are giving me permission to repost your question on my Stories.
