Picnic Invitation Design Best Practices
When designing invitations, you should not compromise anything because the recipient and event are both important. Also, you should design the picnic invitation in a way that your guests will be impressed at first glance.
With DocHipo, anyone can design a picnic invitation with the help of the Design Widgets and the free templates. Hence, to make sure that you don’t face any difficulties while designing the invitation, we have come up with some picnic invitation design best practices. Go through them carefully before you start designing.
Plan Your Picnic Invitation
Before starting the design process, the first thing you should do is to figure out how your invitation should look. There are many reasons to throw a picnic party. So, your card should reflect the mood of your picnic. For example, the picnic invitation design for a Birthday BBQ will not be the same as a Family Picnic Day. Here are two different templates to help you understand this appropriately.
The fonts and the background shape in this template above have warm colors like Tart Orange and Candlelight to perfectly match the BBQ image.
The template above is for a family picnic invitation, so everything from the color combination to the background and the typography to the illustration gives a gently calming effect to the overall design.
Furthermore, you need to include all the information about your picnic, such as the address, date & time, purpose, RSVP information, and others in the invitation. Jot down this information separately so that you don’t forget to mention crucial information. Imagine designing a stunning invitation, but the recipients don’t know why and who is throwing the picnic party. Thus, making it essential for you to plan the picnic invitation before proceeding with the design process.
Choose Fonts Wisely
There will be a lot of crucial information and your invitation message on the invitation card. So, the fonts you choose for the design should be legible and visually appealing. Since the picnic invitation is not formal, you are free to choose any font you want. Moreover, there are no general rules about which fonts to choose for a special occasion.
However, it’s still important to pick the most suitable fonts for your design. Since a picnic is a happy occasion, you should choose the fonts that convey fun and happiness while creating a warm feeling. Considering these things, you can select fonts like Great Vibes, Grand Hotel, Roboto, Quicksand, Open Sans, Pacifico, Indie Flower, Kaushan Script, Poppins, and many others.
Whatever you pick, ensure that you don’t get tempted to use too many different fonts for the design unless you want to make your design look overcrowded and unprofessional. Consider reading the article on typography hierarchy to use fonts appropriately for your picnic invitation.
Choose The Best Color Combination
When designing invitations, finding the perfect color combination can be your winning secret to having an eye-catching design that attracts the recipient’s attention at first glance. According to Wikipedia, Color is the design element that can set the mood, attract attention, and influence human perception.
Therefore, you must choose your colors carefully for the picnic invitation design. Use complementary colors to avoid any risk of making the design look dull. If you want to make the design look aesthetically appealing, use light and cool shades of different colors, just like the template below.
Alternatively, you can use dark shades and warm colors if you want to make a fiery design, such as a BBQ Picnic Party. Here is an example invitation template.
Here is an article about the best color combinations to help you choose colors for your picnic invitation.
Incorporate High-Quality Images
Good images make your invitation shine and make it more personalized. If you want more personal touch on their picnic invitation design, you can opt to use high-quality images in it. Find a group photograph of the people you want to invite and insert it in your invitation. Moreover, to make it more interesting, you can personalize every single card with the recipient’s photographs. So, each of them will get something unique. And the picnic invitation templates in DocHipo let you add images easily.
Use Other Elements Naturally
Your picnic invitation template might have other elements such as icons, illustrations, shapes, lines, and others. These elements give your invitation a handmade touch that it requires. But you must not stuff these elements into your invitation and make the design overcrowded. Use them contextually between texts, around other elements, or any way you think is okay. You can take inspiration from this picnic invitation template below.
Utilize The White Space
Knowing how to use white space in your design can be the most effective way to make your invitation more attractive. White space is not only white but the empty space in a design. People have this misconception which prevents them from using this essential design principle.
White space can be any space within your invitation that is free from all the other design elements. It will help you improve legibility and add emphasis to your invitation. To utilize this unique design principle, remove unnecessary elements from your invitation, such as borders. Leave ample space between letters.
By doing so, all the design elements in your picnic invitation will get enough room to breathe and make the overall design visually appealing.
