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.
Flyers are one of the oldest, most foolproof advertising tools in the book. We’re used to receiving flyers everywhere: in our mail boxes, on the street, in stores and restaurants. But are flyers still effective in 2019/2020?
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.
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.
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.
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.
