At first glance letterhead designs seems simple, but don’t let the absence of body copy fool you. Seasoned graphic designers know that the simpler the design, the more creative you need to be in order to make your letterhead compelling and memorable. Framing content in design is made more difficult when you don’t know what the message will be; thus, your letterhead design must be generic enough to visually complement any type of communication, yet powerful enough to promote your company and brand.
