Hey everyone! I was wondering if I could get a little bit of constructive criticism for this flier I’m going to be handing out at a hospital Thursday, for a PSA about organ donation for my Ethics class.
I have a splitting headache so it’s kind of hard for me to really scrutinize it. I know simple, clean bulleted lists are very easy attention-getters, because we’re attracted to simplistic organization and something that won’t take long to read.
I integrated the medical cross in a few places for obvious reasons (without making it cliche level of obvious), and kept it clean and minimalistic as not to obscure reading. I made the header, what I found to be the most shocking and crucial fact, a bit off kilter to inspire curiosity and to keep the entire thing from being all monotonous 90 degree angles.
I’m still not super proud of it though and I’d love some input. I’m printing them tomorrow but I’ll have some time to make some changes. Are the colors a good choice? I wanted something warm and lively to attract attention without being “cheerful” because it is fairly solemn. Does it look too much like lined notebook paper? What do you think would be a good alternative to a design choice I made?
I wanted to add some myths and common misconceptions, but I feel like that would be squishing too much into an 8.5 x 11 flier. Should I just keep that stuff left for the actual presentation we’ll be doing?
I know the hearts are a bit cliche, but I felt they kept the flier feeling “positive”, because organ donation is often looked upon with disdain because people are scared to think about it. I want organ donation to be a positive thing! It’s wonderful and saves lives. Thus, the hearts.
Any input/critique/criticism is greatly appreciated! What do you all think?
