    1. Find out what you want to layout
    2. Find content
    3. Find style
    4. Layout
    4a. Format
    4b. Typeface (s) + Grid
    4c. Colors

    Hope this answer was as precise as expected.

    BTW: I find it hard, too.

    for starter ; the obvious one :
    -Pinterest , search for #layout
    -tumblr, search for #layout

    Sometimes you can go Etsy and find inspiration too. :)

    Sometimes it helps me to start with drawing the layout on a piece of paper. Just using squares and rectangles, keep it basic. When you have a layout in squares and rectangles you can make it on the computer and see how it works out. Aligning is very important. So maybe you'll find it helpful to use a grid. If you don't know how to make one just search on youtube you'll find a tutorial. Good luck!

    I second this! Go to different portfolio websites for inspiration.

    If you're having more trouble with the actual creation of a flyer layout, then use a template as a starting point. Templates are good for beginners who need a foundation already set for them.

    There are tons of flyer templates floating around the web in different sizes and formats (.psd, .indd, etc.). Just go with something you can easily build from in the design software that you use.

    Hope that helps!

    Grids grids grids. Consider them the "foundation" of any layout design. Learn them, use them, and then sometimes, break them.

    Try folding square pieces of paper into quarters and ninths, and then take existing newpaper articles and rearrange them using those fold lines. I do this for fun sometimes and it really helps to get a good understanding of the grid.

    If you're in need of inspiration I recommend you go to (dun dun dun) your local library. Trust me.

    Start becoming a packrat and collect whatever you find in stores/banks/offices/magazines and throw it up on your wall for inspiration.
