Flyers are still one of the oldest, most inexpensive, and foolproof advertising techniques to attract more students to the admissions process.

In this post, we’ll walk you through an easy three-step method of making eye-catching Educational Flyer designs with DocHipo and some flyer design tips.

What makes a good Educational Flyer design?

Since Educational Flyers play a crucial role in bringing new learners to your academy, the design must be top quality. Let’s see what adds to the excellent flyer design for your success.

Use your brand color

Be consistent with the color code you use for your educational institute throughout all your documents. This will help your target audience recognize your brand instantly. And establishing trust and authority for your academy will prove to be indispensable.

If you are initially unsure about your color scheme, try two to three colors that complement each other.

Pick your fonts smartly

Well, choosing the right fonts is a real deal. Fonts determine how effortlessly your Educational Flyer design will be read by your potential students and the flyer’s overall look and feel.

No worries, you can always take help from the guide How To Choose Fonts For Your Design.

Here’s an example of using fonts from our own Educational Flyer template collection at DocHipo.

Use semi-transparent shapes 

The texts you add in your Educational Flyer design shouldn’t get lost while your target viewers are reading it. No doubt you’ll put a clean background; it’s also a good idea to use transparent shapes to highlight your text in a cool way. Observe how this Educational Flyer template overlays a blue semi-transparent shape over the background image for a bold effect.

Include contact details and a call to action

A clear call to action will make your target students well aware of the next step they are supposed to take. So you can’t afford to miss out on this information. Otherwise, you may lose out on a lot of leads.
