It would have been awesome if the flyer reflected the unique look of the forum . I have to say it , it looks disappointing for me . I suggest a colored flyer that inherits some of the forum's colors. I was thinking about posting one at my university but I didn't because it will draw no attention!.

I am certain that if anyone had a design suggestion for an updated flyer, it would be considered if uploaded for review here.

I hope we can find a member who volunteers to design one for the forum.

It would be very appreciated if someone who specializes in graphic design could make a custom flyer for us. Some things to keep in mind though about flyers is that:

1) It probably shouldn't use too much ink, especially color ink, as that might discourage others to print it
2) It needs to grab the eye somehow which is why "Free math help" is at the top of this one.

However, those two things said I completely agree the flyer is quite boring and would love to be able to offer more options. So if anything feels up for it let me know, otherwise I might try to hire someone to this in the near future.

I think disigning a colored and not colored flyer will be a good idea . The difference should not be great ,though .

Hi everyone, :)

I designed a basic draft for a flyer. This might need many alterations and modifications, but please feel free to comment with your ideas. :)

Might be a permissions issue with this flyer. Is the cartoon public domain? Or did you you get permission to reproduce it? I highly doubt the cartoonist would object, but we really should go through with the paperwork on this.

So I guess it's not possible to add the cartoon to the flyer. I have deleted the two flyers until I redesign them. :)

A bit penny-pinching on his part, if you ask me, considering we're a completely free website for educational purposes. Ah, well.

Yeah, I emphasized in my email that we are a free math help site, but well that's how it goes. :p
