Devil is in the details
Every little detail like colors, fonts, visuals and graphics are setting a personal and genuine voice. Simplicity is based on harmony and balance.
Choose specific fonts and only a couple of variations in different sizes for your texts and visuals. Use common logic and trust a professional opinion about what fits best for your brand.
