In this video, you will upload your logo and complete the layout of your flyer.

As you create your flyer, consider some of the characteristics that can make your flyer stand out.

2 important areas are message and design.

An effective message includes: a compelling headline...

...clear, direct text emphasizing the benefits of the product or service...

...contact information and a call to action.

Effective flyer design includes: attention-grabbing graphics...

...images that are appropriate to the product or service...

...and an uncluttered layout that balances the use of images and empty space.

To start, open a new Google Document, and title it.

Select the flyer’s orientation.

Portrait means your flyer will be vertical, and landscape means it will be horizontal.

For this example, choose portrait.

To leave less white space on the edges of the page, enter smaller margins.

Now, select your page size.

Use the size supported by most printers in your community.

For example, in the United States, Letter is common for flyers.

If you like, experiment with other page sizes.

To insert your logo, navigate to the PNG file you saved and select it.

If the image is difficult to move in your flyer, it could be set as In line with text.

With the in line setting, your image moves around the page like a text character.

To give your logo more flexibility, choose the Wrap text option.

Wrap Text lets you specify the image margins -- or the amount of white space that surrounds an image.

You can also use the crop tool to make the most of your flyer’s available space.

Return to your Flyer Design brainstorming document.

Copy the information into your file that you want to include in your flyer.

Format your headline, descriptive text, and the call to action.

Think about the messaging and design tips discussed earlier.

Experiment with font style, size, and color.

When you’ve finished with your first draft, move on to the next video to get feedback on your flyer.
