GOLDEN RATIO IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Building your graphic design around a golden rectangle or a Fibonacci sequence takes some real art mastery, but any designer can use it as a general guideline to add tweaks and improvements to their design. The more you get used to the golden ratio, the more you’ll find that it’s merely showing you where the best parts of your design are—it’s not necessarily dictating how you should design your piece.

Sometimes you’ll find that the golden ratio suits a design perfectly, while other times, you’ll come up with clever ideas that don’t necessarily adhere to the rules. That’s fine—for as many designs you’ll find out there in the world that fulfill the golden ratio, you’ll find nearly an equal amount of designs that don’t. It’s not a make-or-break rule; it’s just another tool you can add to your designer’s toolkit.

A visual example of how golden ratio helps.
