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.
To ensure that distributing a flyer is worth your time, you will probably want to track the ROI of your flyers. Include a clear CTA (call-to-action) that not only prompts people to want to check out your business, but that will also enable you to track how many customers you pulled in with your flyer.
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?
Think outside the flyer box and get creative with its shape, maybe even turning it into something that can be repurposed. If you can get people using the flyer instead of throwing it away, you’ve succeeded! Consider creating a flyer that’s a door hanger or a postcard, or perhaps an interactive design that inspires the customer to fold it or play around with it in some capacity.
If your flyer has a busy background image, it can be easy for text to get lost in it. This is an opportunity to introduce some functional design elements to your flyer. Try overlaying shapes over your background image and adjusting the transparency so some of the background still peaks through. That way, your text will be able to pop without the background image being obscured.
Consumers like to know what they’re getting. That’s why it’s a good idea to include a big picture of your product–or even use it as a background image for your flyer. ust make sure that the text stand out against the background. Using bold, blocky text can help. You could also overlay your image with a transparent color filter.
