Flyers are everywhere.
They’re one of the most widely used printed marketing materials and despite the recent trend towards online advertising, you’ll find that flyers still crop up on a day-to-day basis (especially if you’re a business owner who regular attends networking events).
But why is this? Well, flyers are popular for a reason: they remain one of the best forms of advertising/marketing. They’re cheap to produce, cheap to distribute (you can usually find a company in your local area to do this for you), and they bring people into your sales funnel (when used correctly).
However, a lot of businesses make a big mistake when it comes to flyers: they don’t focus enough attention on the design process.
The fact of the matter is that simply creating a flyer and having it printed won’t bring a positive return-on-investment unless it’s well designed and “strikes a chord” with your target audience.
If you’re struggling for design inspiration, we’ve rounded up some of the best examples on the web below:

The truth is that sometimes a logo may subliminally convey messages to the subconscious which sometimes even the creators may not be aware of. People may respond positively or negatively to the logos without knowing that they may be unconsciously responding to the hidden subliminal messages. To that extent, shapes are more than a bunch of lines connecting each other.

Your logo is an image and text version of your brand values, your brand identity. In an article from Infoentrepreneurs.org, the article mentions how your brand extends to the core values of your business, to “every interaction you have with customers and suppliers.” The article further says how “your brand is what you are really selling to your customers, not just a product or service for which there may already be many existing providers.” That’s why it’s important for your brand to match your logo style.

Illustrations are everywhere and they’ve been around for decades! They are found in textbooks, comics, story books, banners etc; and now we find them on web pages too.
The reason behind the popularity of illustrations is not hard to find. The fact is our mind has always been attracted to storytelling- textual, oral, or visual. Illustrations have been integral to storytelling as they provide a visual medium to grasp the problem, main point or essence of the subject matter easily.
Illustrations are in our heart and wrapped up in our memories.
But times have changed and where do they stand now in popular consciousness?
Will that age old connect we have with Illustrations continue in the future?
In my opinion, it will flourish.
