Experiment with Vibrant and Contrasting Colors

Colors can make your restaurant’s key message stand out to the right people and direct their eyes toward them. It will also create and improve your brand awareness and recognition. The colors and textures you use should make your target people feel intrigued and hungry. You may experiment with more oranges and yellows that stimulate the appetite.

For instance, the Restaurant Flyer Design with a fresh and hot pizza slice used a vibrant color scheme.

Choose Fonts Appropriate to the Design

Whether you have a luxurious restaurant, fast food joint, or run a homemade food business, choosing the right fonts for your flyers is crucial. Alongside legibility, the fonts must communicate the range of dishes you offer. It should also reflect your food business’s personality and style.

If you serve a range of foods and feel that a single font isn’t enough to bring in the flavor of the dishes, try two to three fonts.

For example, observe the beautiful font choices in the two DocHipo Restaurant Flyer Templates below.

Experiment with the Typography

Typography is another integral element in your Flyer Design of using text as a visual. Convey the mood or tone of your message and evoke their hunger with a visually attractive typography design. It should be easy and fun to look at.

Play around with different design elements to give unique shapes to your text. Arrange the letters so that they become worth remembering for your viewers. 

For instance, look at the Restaurant Flyer Templates below. They’re adding freshness to the design.

Take Care of the Visual Hierarchy

Figure out the first thing you want your target customers to know about your restaurant. After that, use a Visual hierarchy to highlight it. Your potential customers should know what you are talking about right away.

Keep the main message or name of the event in a large and easy-to-read font.

Then use the same or any other pairable font(s) in a smaller size for details like the nature of the event (say, food festival, the opening of a restaurant, etc.), location and date, your restaurant’s menu, and so on.

For example, you’ll understand the above points from the following DocHipo Restaurant Flyer Design Templates.
