Flyer And Leaflet Design

Flyer and Leaflets facts...

Flyers and leaflets may seem traditional, simple and unexciting, but nothing brings as much bang for your buck in marketing.

Flyers are an advertising tool that have been around since 1900. They are usually distributed and left in places to advertise a particular event, service, or product. There are many ways to make your flyer and leaflet design stand out, but one of the most common is colour. The right choice of colour can draw attention to your flyer because when people see colours that they like or associate with something they want, they automatically notice it more.

Colour is the first thing that attracts people’s eyes to a flyer. Using a bright Red for instance catches peoples attention because they associate it with danger or a blood-like substance which makes them curious and interested in what it is advertising for. 

Flyers should be easy to understand. They should have a clear call-to-action and be professional looking. If you are a Solicitors then using fonts such as Comic Sans sends the wrong message, whereas for a School fete, using Comic Sans as part of your flyer and leaflet design may be a better choice. Flyers also need to get the viewer involved in the content as soon as possible without them making an effort, so avoid using large quantities of text, and use bright, bold banners and images.

Good flyer design is all about understanding your audience and meeting their needs while providing them with useful information in a visually appealing manner.
