Make Great Church Flyers in 2023: 5 Quick Design Ideas

Let's say you've found the right religious flyer background or layout. What's the next step? Let's look at some design tips to help you work with your template and create the right end result for your project.

The best church flyers are the ones that reach their audience and do so in a way that's memorable too. Basically, the flyer should look good, but it's also got to work. This is easier said than done.

Now, let's dig into some quick design tips to help you create and customize your next design project: 

1. Less Is Often More

A great design isn't necessarily a design that's packed with stuff. Remember, the goal isn't just to look good—your design should potentially look good and work well too.

What does that mean? Well, for example, imagine creating a flyer with a lot of flashy graphics. Sure, it looks impressive... but your viewers have a hard time finding the contact info, time, and meeting place. The main objective has been compromised for flashy extras.

Instead, find a balance. When in doubt, ask a second pair of eyes to check your work. 

How easy is it to navigate the content? It can be tempting to add a lot of bells and whistles. But, sometimes there's a beauty to simplicity.

Remember, less is often more—check out this clean, simple flyer design. It's a great example.

2. Imagery Is Very Communicative

Images say a lot without necessarily saying anything with actual words. For example, pretend that you can't read any of the text in the example below. You'd still see a visual association with summer. A template like this could be a great fit for a summer event for your organization. 

The imagery you choose communicates your concept. What do you want your design to visually say? Do you want to use imagery commonly associated with your religious practice? With the time of year or seasonal event?

3. Consider Space and Color 

Think of your flyer design like an artist's canvas—this is your space. How you use that space makes all the difference. We can use all kinds of design elements to break up our space. In the example below, notice how color (and shape) are used to visually section off different parts of the design.

Notice, as well, how this helps promote hierarchy—a system of importance. Where do your eyes go, for example, when you first look at this design? It likely goes to the large text in the salmon-colored area of the design. This area really commands our attention.

4. Consider Your Target Audience

Who do you hope to reach or attract with your flyer? Are you creating a church invitation flyer, with hopes of attracting new attendees? Or maybe you're working on a church event flyer for a specific day, activity, or meeting. Define the purpose and the audience in question to make informed design decisions.

For example, the example below might be most appropriate for a younger audience or families. Note the colorful, cute imagery. It's inviting, playful, and fun. These are all things with a strong association with an Easter egg hunt event.

5. Visual Consistency Across Items

Have a lot of content to share? For example, perhaps you've got a flyer, but you also aim to share extra content with your audience. Visual consistency can help establish that these items are related.

For example, let's say you've got a flyer for your church event to help advertise it to your group, their friends, and their family. But, at the event itself, maybe you've got a reading list, dedication, or other content to share. These items should share common visual components. This would help establish that they're one, related, extension of one another.
