When I first started college, I didn’t know what I wanted “to be”. I always loved art and words and combining them, so I went for Graphic Design. After a couple years at a junior college, my university plans had to change and I decided to apply to schools in California. Having lived in Texas my whole life, it seemed like the right thing to do at 21. So I set off to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
What a cool experience! I took 5 classes all in “The City”. One of the campuses was right by the ocean. The rest were down town in the heart of the Financial District. My professors were all renowned in the industry. They had worked for companies like Bank of America and Victoria Secret. And the fellow students were incredibly creative, producing top notch projects.
So, while here I took a class all about layouts. Since my college years, I find myself making tons of flyers, brochures, business cards and such for people. Especially with social media, many businesses find themselves needed graphics. Although all good layouts should include use of the elements and principles of design, there are some technical tips and techniques that can help you create flyers on your own. I created an infographic with some basic helpful hints.
Please let me know if you find this helpful while you create your own flyers and graphics. I’d love to hear from you!
