Leafleting and Postering Protocol
(developed by Hackney Mutual Aid)
Designing Leaflets and Posters
The leaflets and posters must be designed to be accessible and eye-catching, with the necessary information easily readable.
Please try to follow accessibility guidelines from the Sensory Trust, using Large Print wherever possible and Clear Print if not. Use a sans serif font such as Arial, Helvetica, Lucida Sans, Tahoma or Verdana. Use contrasting colours using these guidelines.
Use simple language to describe the relevant information and make sure contact details are visible and clear.
