If you are planning on hosting a concert, then having an attractive poster with a professional design will bring in the most foot traffic. We know that hiring a graphic designer is not an affordable option for many, that’s why here at EDIT our mission is to give you a fast way to create posters yourself in just some minutes. After you are familiar with our design approach, you can begin creating your preferred graphic resources, either to acquire followers on your social media or perhaps to make custom tickets for your events without using confusing programs like Photoshop.
How is that possible? It is very easy, by using the right tool: EDIT.
EDIT is an online graphic design editor that has been created to democratize the world of design, allowing even those who have no idea how to create graphic pieces with professional results. Through totally modifiable templates you will be able to adapt to your needs by using a design template that has been previously created by a professional designer.
You can change anything you want such as the text, typography, elements, colors, background etc., all in a single click.
The editor is organized in different categories according to the needs of different sectors. You can find a category that has been created specifically for concert and festival posters. Within this category, you will find a lot of concert poster ideas. It doesn't matter if you need a poster for a classical music concert or a rock festival, there are over 50 designs to choose from and you can always start designing with a blank canvas if you can't find what you're looking for.
Below we want to give you a series of tips for you to take into account when you start designing your poster…
The simplest formats work the best, don't overload the space with too much information as it will be overwhelming to the eye, and important information will go unnoticed. Avoid including unnecessary information such as typical phrases like, "We expect you!" or "Don't miss!", but don't forget to put key aspects such as the location, date, time, etc., and of course if the ticket is free, it is something you have to highlight.
Too much information means a loss of attention for the public.
Typography is another of the most important elements in a poster. It must be easy to read. Try not to mix more than two different fonts in the design.
In addition to the typographies proposed in our templates with concert posters, we have a selection of typographic combinations pre-selected by professionals to help you with your choice.
For information such as the band name, dates, time, and place we recommend using a thicker typeface. For secondary information such as ticket price and other legal aspects you can use a typeface with a thinner thickness.
Be very careful with the colors you use, and especially how you combine them! Look for a combination of colors between the background and the contrasting letters, to make them easier to read. For example, if the background is black, use white colors for the text. Of course, you can also use vibrant combinations.
You also have to take into account where the posters are going to be hung because depending on the light, too bright of colors may be illegible. You can try to make two versions, print them, and get an idea of how it will look (with EDIT it won't take long to get the two models ready to print). Keep in mind that many times the colors change a lot from seeing them on the computer screen to seeing them live.
Before you finish your design, check it out. Check the typography (as many times as necessary) and also the text you have written to ensure the right dates, times, etc. Check that no important information is missing so that people can attend the concert successfully. Make sure that all the elements are well squared (you can find help with the guides that appear in the editor when moving texts or objects).
You'll have your poster ready to print and share on social networks!
In addition, we invite you to take your time and research the editor, as you will find different templates and designs that can help you make posts for your social networks, something essential to reach your audience today. In addition, once you register, you will be able to access your designs from where you want and when you want, you only need a device with Internet access to find the design where you left it and have it ready in a minute.
