  • Make things look good 'like this flyer' - You've got to be joking, right? The flyer above is hideous in so many ways 1. Difficult to read 2. Never ever ever use red as a background to text. 3. Never center a heading eg. 'Wanted' 4. Allow more space to left of text for better aesthetic feel. 5. Never ever ever use stupid juvenile multi-coloured text eg. 'How to apply'. I would re-design your flyer but it's already clear that you don't understand good design and therefore would not appreciate my efforts. Please don't think of me as a crank, but instead take this advice. Hire a professional designer who thinks along the lines of Apple's Steve Jobs. Remember, less is more even 'though less can sometimes be more difficult to achieve. Think of the magnificent iPhone or iPad - would you ever see the fonts you've used above even associated with an advert for one of these best selling products. No!
