8 Inspiring Flyer Designs

How can it be that we live in an age of digital marketing, and flyers are still one of the most preferred methods of advertising? Well, they do a great job marketing your business just as well as a social media post. They’re also affordable, effective, and depending on your distribution strategy, can easily reach your target market. The best kinds of flyers are eye-catching, informative, and convincing.

Creating your own flyer design can be quite challenging especially if you’re just starting out. Sometimes we need a little inspiration to get us going. Here are 8 flyer ideas that can inspire you to create your own flyer for your business:

1. Friendly vibes

2. An Experiment in Folding

This flyer by Christian Nicolaus may look simple at first glance. However, the intricate folding and the purposefully placed text make it a very complex flyer design. Honestly, there is no need for a complicated graphic, when the flyer itself creates such a unique and interactive experience for its reader. Though your flyer doesn’t have to be this elaborate, using folded leaflets can really take it to the next level.

3. Bright and Bold

The graphics are not only relevant, but it’s also eye-catching and fascinating to look at. The use of the colour red makes for a bold and daring statement. The event details are easy to read and the contest aspect is nicely highlighted.

Why should you always use a photo of the performer when promoting a concert tour? Think outside the box and go in another direction. Take inspiration from the Julio Victoria Euro Tour flyers, which use bright colourful shapes and illustrations, instead of the singer’s image. The design makes up for the simple shapes and line art by using bright festive colours and an unusual asymmetrical layout. The whole look may be minimal and abstract, but it creates a festive mood that will get any fan excited.

6. Get Personal
