Open House Invitation Design Tips
If you are a non-designer and have little or no experience in Invitation design, you might need some design tips to get started. So, we have come up with some practical and proven design tips to help you.
Use High-Quality Fonts
You are designing the Invitation to impress your clients and guests and provide them with an invitation they can not decline. So, you need to present your messaging in the most beautiful way possible.
Using a high-quality font is essential while designing an invitation. Just like the other design elements, typography plays a crucial role in graphic design. Different fonts evoke different emotions and add personality to your Invitation.
So, choose fonts that suit the mood you want to set with your Invitation. Limit your font selection to three for a single design and pair different fonts that complement each other.
Though you are free to choose trendy and wild font options, since your design is related to real estate, you should be wary of them.
Here’s an example of an Open House Invitation template for you.
Additionally, read the article about Typography Hierarchy to learn more about choosing and using fonts for your design.
Use Appropriate Colors
Color is another important element of any design. Like the typography, colors can also evoke different emotions and set the overall mood for the design. So, learn about the emotional impact of colors from our brand colors article.
Now, you can choose two to three colors that complement each other and are relevant to the theme of your design. Also, pay attention to the hue and saturation of the colors you choose.
You can go for different Gray, Black, Brown, White, Green, and Blue shades to give your Invitation an elegant look. Moreover, you can consider other elements such as images, icons, illustrations, or anything else to choose colors for your design.
Look how, in the Open House Invitation Template below, the colors have been selected considering the images in it.
Additionally, learn more about the best color combinations and use them in your design.
Use High-Quality Images
Always use high-quality images that are sharp, clear, and distortion-free because they are the first things your clients will consider before joining your Open House arrangement.
So, click some photographs of your property and use them in your design to connect with the text and clarify the information presented in the Invitation.
You don’t have to be an artist to use images in your design. All you need is a little creativity and an inspiration to design. So, here is an example of an Open House Invitation template from DocHipo to get you inspired.
Use Additional Elements
Use elements such as shapes, illustrations, lines, texture, or others to add some final touches to your design for visual appeal.
You can add lines between images and text to separate them and use shapes as the background of the texts to make them pop.
Also, you can use an illustration as the focal element of your Invitation design, just like the template below.
Don’t Crowd Your Invitation
Don’t crowd your Invitation design with too many design elements to make it aesthetically pleasing. A critical design principle is a negative space that helps your viewers take in all the information in the Invitation without feeling bombarded.
So, always try to leave enough negative space between texts, images, and other elements. To do that, make sure that you don’t pack texts into small space, leave enough room between letters and lines, and use photographs that already have white space in them or at least are not crowded.
