Last updated on December 20th, 2019 at 04:44 pm
Let’s start with a disclaimer: Not all these flyers were made in 2016, but thanks to how search engines work we were only able to come across them this year. That said, we’ve seen several interesting developments in “best flyer design” practices, namely with what seems to be the waning of pure flat designs and the return of gradients — thankfully in more understated forms.
Here are some of the best flyer design samples we’ve seen from designers and creative agencies this year.
This hip flyer design masterfully pulls off a color palette that not a lot of other designers use.
2.) Alexandra Turban
3.) Tess Redburn
5.) Overloaded & Pahito
This rather old-school event flyer surprises with a well-executed blend of traditional and modern elements.
7.) Agência Matriz
8.) Jimena Gamio
This is an expected look for many nightclub flyers, but this example takes the complexity to a different level.
10.) Suji Allen
11.) Karoly Kiralyfalvi
13.) Eugenia Anselmo
14.) Das Department
The washed-out aesthetic of old catalogs and other ephemera wasn’t intentional and was mostly due to a limit of old printing technologies. This example combines modern style with a warm, familiar look.
16.) Company Folders
Who says gradients don’t work?
17.) Joanna Kosinska
19.) Shaun Hill
20.) Julie Joanny
The “lapels” are a great touch.
21.) Loulou and Tummie
22.) Darren Nguyen
Complex die-cut flyers on cardstock may not always be the cheapest or the simplest to ship — but they sure turn heads.
23.) Ellen Bruss Design
24.) Bravo Company
This example from Singapore doubles as a head-turning door hanger.
25.) Goooood Company
This incredible design incorporates several of the best practices associated with minimalist design, yet isn’t simplistic. Wouldn’t mind owning one of these, just because.
Never thought a flyer design could make olives be this exciting!
27.) Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
This eye-catching promotional flyer by Tower Records for J-Pop singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has unexpectedly punk roots.
28.) Shop Spotlight
29.) Baby Jupiter
30.) Ed Price
The “techo” look seems ingrained into many nightclub flyer designs. This example manages to avoid looking like everything else, which is saying something.
31.) Marco Oggian
One problem many minimalist designs have is that they are minimal to the point of omitting import info. This flyer does it right.
32.) Zim & Zou
33.) Ross Gunter
34.) Giuseppe Fierro
35.) Michael Higginson
37.) Jacopo Severitano
38.) LouLou & Tummie
This same concept would be awesome if expanded into a trifold flyer.
39.) Eszter Laki
Another standout horizontal flyer design.
40.) Nicole Jacek
This experimental flyer design uses lenticular printing to create an interesting effect.
41.) Piotr Szmilyk
Designs that require accurate edge-to-edge printing are best done through a professional printing service that offers manual proofing.
42.) Martin Azambuja
43.) Valerie Jar
44.) The Prince Ink Co.
The proportions of this design could easily be transposed onto a bookmark.
45.) Joris Rigerl
46.) Justin Krout
This is the best flyer design for contemporary visual design since breaking down images to their geometric basics is a staple.
47.) Kristie Kam
48.) Joshua Benedikt
49.) Joel Felix
50.) Steve Wolf
51.) Glenn Jones
52.) Guillaume Kasima
53.) Rich Scott
54.) Tobias Tietchen
