So, you want a stand-out poster or flyer for an event or sale… Wanna know one of our fave ways to create impact? Short, but BIG, bold, and creatively positioned typography.

Think of this as text telling pics and illustrations, ‘Step back you two, we’ve got this’.

Besides posters, big ’n’ bold typography is ace for Facebook covers, websites, packaging, and T-shirts. It can be done in gazillions of ways, but here are three easy tricks:

• Broken-up words

• Scattered and rotated letters

• Giant text extending beyond the canvas

Tip: Creating from scratch? Create your word or phrase on a Transparent Background, and save as a PNG. This makes it easy to move it about as one element on a design. More on this here.
