Ericka Coella has created a brilliant retro design – faded colors and 1970’s style imagery make this flyer super-cool

This flyer is actually a poster that's been cleverly folded to act as both a flyer and "fold-out-poster." The geometric design is really futuristic in a retro way! A seriously sophisticated piece of graphics.

I hope you too have been inspired by some truly exceptional flyer designs. The one thing that all these flyer designs have in common is that they have tried to be a little more unique and different! I’ve purposely not included that typical “hot girl in bikini” style flyer and shown you a subtler, more thoughtful flyer. When creating your own flyers, my advice is to be bold but try not to be too obvious!
