So you have planned your kendama event, and decided how, where, why, what, and many more details. We understand, you want to start getting the word out. Flyers are a great way to let anyone know about your event. They can be shared on Facebook, Instagram, text messages, and in other random places. While they are easy to share, it is a little harder to gather peoples' interest. The better your flyer looks, the better your event will be. If your flyer isn't planned well, who is to say that the event won't be either?
Less is often more when it comes to design. You want people to know good, valid, and specific information about your event. Keep it clear, concise, and concrete. Your flyer needs to have at least this information:
Anything else can usually be talked about in the captions below when sharing your flyer. Type of event is a popular one to be described in captions, but sometimes it can be useful to just sum up your event type by saying something like, "Jam Session," as it gets the point across and people know what to expect.
As for all of the other details, I would rank them in importance and decide by their importance how you will arrange them.
Once you've decided which information is important, and you've ranked them, you can arrange them in a way that makes the most sense. Typically, the name of the event goes at the top. It is the first thing people look at, and that can be used to make the idea stick. Once kendama players have read the details, when they talk about the event by name, others will know all of the other details associated with the name.
Next, everything else follows. The more important things are usually bigger, The size of the text conveys importance!
Kendama companies/sponsors are usually all at the bottom. Sponsors of the event are important, but there are often many of them which can clutter your flyer. The details are the most important for your sweet kendama event.
Share your flyer with as many people as you can. Then get them to share it as well. The more kendama players you can get to an event, the better.
