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).
Linear is boring! Try putting your headings on an angle and play with your typography and imagery to make your flyer stand out from the crowd.
Don’t underestimate the power of a bold header. After all, it’s probably the first thing that someone scrolling through social media is likely to see–and it’s a great opportunity to do something outside of the box. Your flyer header is an opportunity to use a decorative font, creative visuals, and an eye-catching color scheme.
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?
You don’t need to go overboard and stuff the flyer full of every ounce of information you have available. Decide on one key message and then focus on that. Minimalist designs with a lot of space can really help to focus attention on what matters.
Sometimes going really dark can attract as much attention as bright colors. Black flyers is particularly effective for luxury brands or to communicate danger, horror or nighttime.
