If you have multiple products you want to showcase–like a new product line or seasonal products–then a simple grid layout is a good way to approach your flyer design. That way, your products will be organized and easy to skim. In this product flyer example you can see how easy it is to see all of the products at once, without the design becoming cluttered or hard to read.
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.
You may want to show your full range of products or services to demonstrate the many different options available. Presenting the various flyer styles and designs that you offer and the many ways they can be used things will help you capture as many customers as possible.
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.
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.
Illustrations can make a flyer design feel inviting. But creating an illustration in a pinch and within a budget can be tough–unless you do it yourself using icons. Think of a scene that illustrates what your business does. Then, arrange icons on your flyer like you would arrange stickers.
