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.
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.
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.
While it may be tempting to hop onto the latest marketing trend and use whatever social app is making the headlines right now, sometimes tried-and-tested tools are the most effective—like flyers. The shiny leaflets handed out on the street—that often end up in the next trash can—still have a place in today’s marketing campaigns.
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.
One of the easiest ways to recognize a brand is through their brand colors. Incorporating your brand colors into your flyer design will help keep your branding cohesive across all platforms, digital and print. You can either design your entire flyer in your brand colors, or you can use them as accent colors.
