Add Contrast

For typography to be successful, it needs to be readable. Make sure the text varies in color enough to be seen in combination with the photo. If you have a photo with a dark background, opt for white (or light colored) text. If your photo has a light background, go with a dark-colored type treatment. Contrast can also refer to the size of text in relationship to what is happening in the image. Lettering should work with (not against) the image.

Make Text Part of the Image

Sometimes it just works that text becomes – or is – part of the image you are working with. This can be tough to achieve and only works in limited cases. You either need a simple image and word to work with or an image that is taken with text in it.

Follow the Visual Flow

Working with the visual flow of an image is one of the most important tips when it comes to typography. The typography should lead your eye through the image and not detract from it. The type should work with the image and not against it.
