Using inappropriate font. Use of wrong font can make your flyer less attractive. Select the font that does not look messy or unclear. Likewise, font size of all the text on the flyer should not be either too small or too large.
Unable to coordinate the design of a flyer with the theme of your carnival. Use the design or images that best represent the carnival, i.e. the images should show what carnival is about and what activities are included in it. Also, colors that clash too much and go over the top can ruin all of your efforts of creating a good carnival flyer. In a nutshell, choosing appropriate images or pictures for a carnival flyer is as important as selecting the right font to highlight your message. Therefore, choose them wisely and carefully.
Forgetting the most important things. You might be really excited to finalize and take out prints of your carnival flyer so that you can start distributing them, but unless you have included the date, time and location, nobody will come there. Therefore, make sure to include necessary information in it.
Following the above guidelines and avoiding the common mistakes will definitely help you in designing and creating a good and attractive carnival flyer.
