An unusual image (whether it’s a photo or an illustration) helps draw attention and encourages people to take a closer look at your flyer. Try putting a unique spin on your product or blending it with other settings, objects, or people relevant to your business. Squarespace have used a combination of photography and graphics to create an eye catching flyer to encouraging people
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.
Tapping into seasonality and current events will ensure that your message is relevant and timely. It can be a promotion or a special event or just a flyer design element that ties into the symbols associated with the fall or the December holiday season or whatever else is going on that’s relevant to your brand and products.
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.
When designing your product flyer, think about the personality you want to communicate. Is your business fun and easygoing? Is it reliable? Is it innovative, or more traditional? Since flyers are such an instantaneous marketing material you need to make an impression on potential customers, and fast.
Sometimes old is new. If you’re not down with the kids and in touch with the latest trends, why not choose a vintage flyer design that embraces the old days?
