Design Tips

April 19, 2018

We get several questions about designing flags (it’s what our company does). BestFlag’s strength is that we give our customers the same abilities we have to design flags using our online flag designer. Of course, not everyone that uses the designer is a professional graphic designer. That’s the point. It’s for everyone. Still, some guidance may be needed to make the best custom flag possible. We’re all about helping you. It’s what we do.

BestFlag is a company that thrives on telling your story and telling it right. We are a company of designers, consultants, graphic design artists, producers, and industry vets that seek to create the worlds most high-quality custom promotional materials at a price that won't ever break the bank. You know your brand better than anyone out there. Paired with us, we can make your brand more visible, memorable, and recognizable than ever. 

Alright. Let’s talk about design basics.

This is a great rule for nearly any design endeavor, but keep it simple. Simplicity is often regarded as inadequate. But the purpose of a flag is to be remembered and easily recalled. Think of the greatest and most recognizable flags. What comes to mind? Japan, the US, England. Maybe it was another, but what do they all have in common? They’re simple and straightforward.

An extension of simplicity is intentionality. Make sure that every color, design, and insignia has a defined purpose. This will help you decide what are and what aren’t essential design elements for your flag. You don’t need to put design flourishes for their own sake. They need to be full of purpose and intentionality.

Designing a flag with BestFlag is fun and easy. Remember these simple principles and you’ll be off in no time, designing the flag of your dreams. Let us know how we can help!
