Beautiful imagery is a great way to draw people in and get people looking at your flyer. The images should be of a high quality and visually impactful.
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.
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 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.
If you have multiple products you want to showcase–like a new product line or seasonal products–then a simple grid layout is a good way to approach your flyer design. That way, your products will be organized and easy to skim. In this product flyer example you can see how easy it is to see all of the products at once, without the design becoming cluttered or hard to read.
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.
