5 Quick Tips to Make Great Party and Event Flyer Designs for 2020
Curious about how to make a flyer for an event?
Now that we've taken a look at a whole host of awesome flyer templates, let's talk a little bit about what makes a flyer great. Having a great template helps a lot. But it's even more beneficial to understand a little bit about how it ticks. This can further empower you, as you work to customize and create the right composition for your project.
Here's five quick party flyer ideas to keep in mind:
1. Think About Your Composition's Emphasis
Where do your eyes go, when you first see this composition? Take a moment to think about that. What parts of the composition really command your attention, and which feel more supplemental?
The hot dog commands a lot of attention because the shape and the orangey color stand out. But, the word "BBQ" also stands out. Why? Because it's really large on the page.
It's important to think about your Emphasis in a composition. This is your focal point. Think about where you want your viewer's eyes to go, right off the bat. Where should they look and what should they potentially see to grab their attention or interest?
2. Remember, Visuals Speak Too
Our designs are more than what they say with text. Your choice of color, imagery, format, orientation, and more can make such a difference in your composition.
For example, imagine a party flyer in drab, muted colors. This could communicate quite differently from a composition with saturated, vibrant colors. One might feel a lot more full of life and excitement, as opposed to the other, which could feel like a quieter affair.
3. Think About Hierarchy
In design, when we talk about hierarchy, we're often talking about a visual importance in a composition. Don't worry, it's not as complicated as it might sound.
Look at the composition below. What information would you consider complementary? For example, look at the place for the event's URL. Notice that it commands less visual importance over the date—which, arguably, is more important information for the viewer to see at first. We can use things like Scale to help promote a sense of hierarchy in our designs. (In this case, the date is larger and bolder, while the URL is smaller, much more like a whisper.)
4. Color Is a Big Deal
Color is often more complicated than just choosing our favorites. Even in a composition that's rather simple and clean, color can make a big statement. For example, let's picture the composition below, but in grays. It might not feel like a sunny composition anymore. Instead, we might be left with something with a gloomy, rainy look and feel.
Here, we've got yellows, sea greens, and salmon colors. They're light, and they're on a clean, white background. Sometimes, less is more, especially when the colors we're using communicate well and work together so nicely.
5. Think About Movement
Movement often refers to how our eyes move within the composition. Lots of things can visually imply movement. For example, in the composition below, notice how the split between the pink and the blue really directs our eyes. They contrast and they point in a direction. It also splits the composition.
Take note of where your eyes move in your composition. Then, you can use this information to your advantage.
