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.
Pull more people into your circle by encouraging them to follow you on your social channels and, even better, to tag you as they share their pictures online. You can also use your flyer to ask people who have already bought from you to review your product online—why not use existing reviews and testimonials to provide social proof?
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.
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.
A well thought out, well-designed flyer should be:
~ Eye-catching–enough to make people stop and take an interest in reading it.
~ Targeted–the flyer needs to speak directly to the audience you’re targeting.
~ Informative–people should know what the flyer is advertising and where they can find out more.
~ Convincing–the flyer should get people excited about your product, service or event.
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.
