Icons can also be used to represent different options offered by your business. Look for a simple icon that illustrates your option, and differentiate the options by using different colored flyer background.
Include patterns, put a frame around the content or use graphics and type in an unexpected way. A clever bit of flyer design or an element of surprise will help to draw the customer in to see what you have to say.
To keep readers engaged, it helps to add surprising elements to your flyer design. You can do this by dividing your flyer into different sections with color block backgrounds, or by applying different color filters to sections of your flyer.
Instead of just selling, why not use the real estate on the flyer to teach the user something? Show them how your product works, give concrete tips—make it useful.
Clichés aren’t always a bad thing! Using familiar flyer styles, colors and imagery will provide context and help customers understand what you’re about right away. Use obvious cues: blackboards and apples mean school; orchestras and script fonts equal classical music; postcards and stamps portray travel and so on.
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.
