Why Use a Premium Flyer Template? 

We're all trying to do things on a budget—I get it. Free is a perfect price, especially if we find exactly what our project needs at that perfect price tag.

Don't worry, though. We're going to look at some awesome freebies. I encourage you to think about the pros and cons that come with free vs. premium content.

5 Quick Tips to Make Great Party and Event Flyer Designs for 2021

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 work. 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 are 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. Which 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 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 the 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 than 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 a gloomy, rainy look and feel. 

Summer Party Flyer TemplateSummer Party Flyer TemplateSummer Party Flyer Template
This premium Summer Party Flyer Template is available for download right now. Check it out.

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.
