An unusual image (whether it’s a photo or an illustration) helps draw attention and encourages people to take a closer look at your flyer. Try putting a unique spin on your product or blending it with other settings, objects, or people relevant to your business. Squarespace have used a combination of photography and graphics to create an eye catching flyer to encouraging people
The fonts you choose can make or break your flyer design. Not only does font selection determine how easily your flyer is to read, it also plays an essential role in the look of your flyer. Combining two or three different fonts can give your flyer some real flare. Try pairing a bold, decorative title font with a more pared down body font.
Icons – those simple vector graphics that you see everywhere–are handy for packing meaning into a small page. Because they’re simple and recognizable, you can use icons to reinforce (and sometimes even replace) text in your flyer design. Icons can seem overwhelming if you’re new to design, but once you understand their purpose icons are super easy to use.
Less is always more, except when it’s not. You can use lots of different brightly colored shapes to help break up information heavy flyers so that they are easier to read. Use shapes to help highlight testimonials, quotes, icons, or important information about your business. Stick to basic shape and 2-3 colors to make sure you don’t overwhelm your reader.
You don’t want to spend your money on a flyer that people will take one look at and then forget. What’s the specific action you want them to take? Do you want them to go to your store, download an app or attend an event? Make this clear! People shouldn’t have to guess.
Make your business flyer stand out by using interesting photography, shapes, and icons in the flyer background. Flyers are designed to grab attention, so it makes sense to utilize as many clever design hacks as you can.
