Designing a band flyer requires that two primary dynamics are reached. The first of these is the creative concept of the design and emotion being relayed to the viewer. The second part of the design is the mechanics and method used to advertise and sell the event. Make sure to include all of the vital information for the event, location, time, and distribute coordinating soliciting material such as stickers, postcards, and more.
