Stickers can offer a great way to get your brand out there. Not only are they cheap to produce, but people love stickers and likely always will. If you remember buying your first iPod in the early millennium, chances are that you’ll remember Apple including a number of stickers along with your product. These were the hugely popular white Apple logo stickers that would usually be found stuck to the many belongings of Apple fans.
You might also remember that these stickers were extremely minimalistic. Minimalistic designs are hugely popular right now but often, when people are designing stickers, they tend to include far too much detail and thus, their stickers become overly complicated and far from minimalistic works of art.
What’s more, due to the fact that stickers are usually pretty small, non-minimalistic sticker designs can often create quite a big problem for the sticker printing company you’re working with. If you’ve included small text or information, it might have looked great enlarged on your computer monitor but as a printed material, chances are that this small text will become unreadable and ugly.
I believe minimalism is the way forward when it comes to sticker designs so in this article, I’m going to be highlighting a few of my all-time favourite minimalistic sticker ad designs.
