The most important principles behind designing effective letterheads is to keep the design as simple as possible. Keep in mind that a letterhead is a delivery mechanism - it’s not the content itself, rather the supporting structure that delivers that content.

You have to keep in mind what are the critical pieces of information your letterhead should convey, and design using this hierarchy of importance so that the pertinent information is positioned obviously and accessibly.

Make sure that you carefully represent the branding when designing your letterhead. It’s not always necessary to include every last detail on a letterhead. Consider who will be using the stationery. There are certain legal requirements for information you may have to include in standard communications with customers, such as registration numbers.

Your letterhead design should relate the branding to the medium, take advantage of the size and shape of the letterhead to inform decisions about where you place individual elements. Colour is a great way to draw attention to your design, and to specific areas within your letterhead.
