5 tips for choosing and using fonts in your design
  • Decide your theme and target audience

    Consider how you want your brand to be perceived when you choose a font. For example, a Sans Serif font conveys friendliness and a sense of informality. On the other hand, script fonts invoke emotions and provide authenticity to design and messaging.

    Consider function

    Similar to choosing a font to reflect personality, consider the type of font that best fits your design. Do you want to enhance your message’s readability, or make your design pop and grab the viewer’s attention?

  • Add your brand colours
    Select two to three fonts

    Yes! Choose a font for the heading, one for sub-headings, and another for the body text. Too many different fonts can dilute your message and distract your viewers.

  • Add names and other details
    Strike the right balance

    When you choose a font, consider the visual and tonal balance you want to project with your design. To strike the right balance, consider the font weight, length, and how the font flows between each letter.

  • Add names and other details
    Test frequently

    It’s difficult to know how your font will work until you’ve tested it in your design. But testing shouldn’t be a one-time exercise either. Be ready to test different fonts based on the use case, target audience, and the medium (digital or print) where you use a font.

  • Best free script fonts

    Use script fonts to add flair and communicate stylishly. Script fonts are most effective when used in headers and call-outs. Lobster, Mightype, and Allura are three of the popular Script fonts available to free Picmaker users.

  • Organic and abstract shapes
  • Nail your font size

    Match your choice of font with the right size to create the desired impact on the viewer. The recommended header font size is 31 px and 16 px is the recommended size for body font.

  • Curved edges, lines, crosses
