Tip 1: Color palette
When it comes to Valentine’s Day resources, pink and red play the leading role. These colors are traditionally associated with love and romantic gestures, and they add sweetness to any composition. Whether you work with designs, PSD files, photos or icons, make sure your creations include these shades! Here are some inspiring resources featuring pink and red:
Tip 2: Style
There is a wide range of styles you can choose from to create resources that speak about love. Among the styles that will set a trend in 2020, realistic backgrounds, bokeh effect or paper collage are becoming quite popular. Apart from these, cute designs are also a winning choice to express love (like cute animals or characters).
Tip 3: Elements
Some elements are recurrent on Valentine’s Day. Try to include these elements in your creations and, this way, users will be able to relate your resources to this day. Some of the most common elements that represent love are couples, hearts, roses, chocolates, letters, holding hands, presents and even cute animals. No matter the resource type you work with, all of them are versatile and can be applied to designs, photos, PSD files, and icon packs!
Tip 4: Type font
We can’t think of a better way to send a love message than with romantic letterings. Users love letterings because of their versatility, as they can use them in cards or for printing purposes. Also, apart from letterings, we recommend you work with script typefaces as they tend to be cuter and a better option for love resources.
Tip 5: Composition
When it comes to Valentine’s designs, framed illustrations are quite attractive. Especially those framed in a heart. You can combine it with a paper collage style to add depth to the composition and get an original illustration. If you are working with photos, mockups or templates, you can also frame your images with hearts.
Do you already feel the love? Because we do! These are just a few tips you can take into account when creating your V Day resources. However, remember that there are many different types of resources and that you can apply these ideas to any file type. Opt for unique creations that stand out and set the difference.
