Flyer Designs That Will Inspire You

Despite the fact that nowadays we spend most of our time online and our lives have changed to keep pace with the new digital era, there are still a number of advertisement strategies carried out in print media. It’s highly unlikely you’ve never been on the receiving end of a flyer campaign. From a marketing point of view, using flyer advertising assures that the client will have at least a 1% return, given that the fliers are intelligently designed and adequately distributed.

When using such an approach for an advertising campaign, the client can better track the results by incorporating a discount or unique code into the flyer. By gathering statistics this way, a client and his advertising team can have a sense of what they did right and what they did wrong. Using this information, future campaigns can be better aimed at their target groups and the percentage of return can be improved.

But, before you worry about all of that, you have to make sure that the flyer you put out there is good enough to represent your business. Always remember that a flyer has a limited amount of space that you can use in order to get your message across and don’t try to cram too much information into it. Also, keep in mind that the design has to be attractive to the particular age group, profession or gender you’re targeting.

In a way, designing a flyer isn’t very different from designing a websites. In both cases you have to be very careful about the way you display your information and always think about how to best catch the viewer’s eye. Granted, the end goal of a flyer is very different from that of a website, still, there’s  a great deal of ingeniously designed flyers that can prove to be a good source of inspiration to web designers.

Here’s a list of some of the most creative 16 flyers out there that can kick your inspiration up in gear.
