Pixum reveals the top 5 tips for designs with text.

Our tips for creative text editing:

  • #Tip 1 - Matching font

    #Tip 1 - Matching font

    You might be tempted to try out different fonts for your photo book in order to keep the project rich in variety. Avoid this if possible - use instead other elements, such as cliparts and illustrations. Select a font that matches the theme of the photo book and keep it throughout the whole book. Otherwise you risk drawing too much attention from the photos to the text.

  • #Tip 4 - Text lenght

    #Tip 4 - Text lenght

    How much text your photo book should have, depends strongly on the occasion. Some photo books may only need small notes to the photos, stories rather need more space to be told.

    Of course, you can do the explanation part yourself, sitting next to the viewer and proudly presenting your photo book - but it is more practical to have short texts about the photos, which already tell facts or little stories. Just make sure you don't write down entire novels; it's still a photo book, after all, where your images are in the focus.

  • #Tip 5 - Headings and captions

    #Tip-5 - Headings and captions

    If the explanation for a photo has become a bit longer, divide it into sections. Give the text a bit structure and clarity. Headings and captions will help you with that, among other tools. Headings provide a short summary - image captions, on the other hand, hihlight data or facts about individual photo .
