Katarina van der Spoel December 19, 2019 Flyer Designs
While it may be tempting to hop onto the latest marketing trend and use whatever social app is making the headlines right now, sometimes tried-and-tested tools are the most effective—like flyers. The shiny leaflets handed out on the street—that often end up in the next trash can—still have a place in today’s marketing campaigns.
For a lot of people, your flyer will their first introduction to your business. That’s why, if you want to appeal to your target audience, you should try to incorporate your business’ personality into your flyer design. What color scheme reflects your brand? What style–quirky? Sophisticated? Approachable?
Sometimes old is new. If you’re not down with the kids and in touch with the latest trends, why not choose a vintage flyer design that embraces the old days?
If your brand allows it, dare to take some risks and be provocative. Make a bold claim, be overdramatic, use humor if you have it and maybe even lean on some swear words if appropriate (or if inappropriate and you really want to make a flyer statement).
Flyer design is an opportunity to play around with unconventional layouts. That means you don’t have to stick to the classic left-to-right layout. For example, you could position your product in the center of your flyer and circle product details around it.
Answer the big question: what’s in it for me? right away by alerting customers to what you can do for them. Your business flyer likely addresses a need or problem, so make the benefit explicit and use imagery to reinforce the message.
