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.
Flyers are tangible, cost effective and incredibly versatile. When done right, they can reach the right audience with the right message at the right time—which, after all, is what marketing is all about.
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.
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.
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.
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.
