How to Make a Hip-Hop Flyer in Adobe Photoshop

According to a Medium business article, over 55% of all consumers trust print advertisements more than any other form of advertising. And 70% of them find it to be more personal, which makes it more attractive to a potential customer. Flyers are one of them. If you are about to start a hip hop event, then you will surely need flyers. They usually come in a small handout that contains information about the event.

In this article, we share a step-by-step guide and tips for you to be guided on how to make a hip-hop flyer in Adobe Photoshop.

1. Decide and Outline the Content of the Flyer

Plan out the whole thing before starting to make your flyer. Use a planner and a checklist to keep track of the things you need to do. List down all the things that need to be included in your flyer like the date and time of the event.

2. Choose a Template and Add More Compelling Designs

Choose a sample flyer template that best fits your needs and purpose. Make sure also to check the available file formats if it's compatible with Adobe Photoshop. Open the file afterward in Adobe Photoshop and start editing the background first. Add more creative designs to make it more interesting and effective. To avoid having a white border to all the sides of your flyer, make sure to use full bleed. That is because most printers usually aren't automatically able to print right up to the edge of the paper.

3. Insert Texts to Your Content

Fill out your event flyer with texts. Texts should be short and understandable. In that way, people will be interested in reading the content of your flyer. Create an engaging headline for you to be able to catch the gaze of your audience. Use the text box tool to insert texts. Don't forget to mention the essential details, such as the venue, time, date, and contact details. Missing one of them might lead your readers to confusion.

4. Make It More Eye-catching

Every flyer should have a focal point. A focal point where people are able to see and gain interest at first glance. It can be an image or graphic, headline or promotion, or any texts/lettering. Consider coloring your flyer template. Modify and think of the color schemes you want to present in your flyer. If you are having trouble choosing the color schemes, then we suggest you search and learn the meaning of each color in the color wheel.

5. Finalize Your Output

Remember to keep an eye on your errors while making your printable flyer. As soon as you spot one, edit it as quickly as possible to avoid problems that will occur in the near future. Make sure to recheck your work before proceeding to print copies of it. Save the file once you're done then print dozens of copies of it. Distribute it afterward.
