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.
Consumers like to know what they’re getting. That’s why it’s a good idea to include a big picture of your product–or even use it as a background image for your flyer. ust make sure that the text stand out against the background. Using bold, blocky text can help. You could also overlay your image with a transparent color filter.
Sometimes going really dark can attract as much attention as bright colors. Black flyers is particularly effective for luxury brands or to communicate danger, horror or nighttime.
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.
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.
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.
