good design & bad design.
Does anyone actually like clutter? To wake up in the morning and see that your room, house, or car is a complete mess? I don’t think that people wake up and decide that they want to make a mess that day, so why would anyone want to look at a clutter filled advertisement or design? That is what bad design feels like; clutter. A bad design can be frustrating, annoying, and even dull. Bad design can be classified as all of these, and the fact that it just doesn’t draw people’s attention to the design. Bad layouts, emotions, colors, and fonts are the main categories that make up a bad design. Bad design doesn’t help the cause that you are trying to portray, but instead it makes everything more difficult. It makes the audience have to try harder to understand what should just pop out when looked at within the first couple seconds.
Good design is obviously the opposite of bad design. Good design makes it easy for your audience to understand what you’re portraying in your design. When looking at the design, a good design is easily understood within the first couple seconds of a person looking at it. Good design makes it easy for your audience to hear you, to “get it”, to tell others, and take action. Good design helps your audience understand your message — which helps you achieve your goals. Good design creates delight, ease, joy, and efficiency. Good design attracts positive attention.
