/SOME OF OUR CLIENTS INCLUDE

What is design heirarchy? 
When sitting down to design something, ask yourself ‘what’s the most important element of my design?’ More simply stated, what is someone supposed to look at first?

Hierarchy is an extremely important aspect of graphic design. It guides a viewer through the design, therefore, elements need to be prioritised according to their importance. Luckily hierarchy goes hand in hand with contrast and you can achieve that priority easily through scale, the application of color, the size of type and your font choices as well as the use of space.

The most important message of the design should remain dominant no matter the style of the design or how many other elements you use.

These posters for an annual organic wine festival in three cities is a great example of a strong hierarchy. In each poster, the city within the headline text is clearly the most important information, followed by the festival name and logo.
