What is a flatlay?
You've seen them all over Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, websites, blogs, etc.—any place where you need photos that represent your business and what you do in your business, there's a flatlay that's shows it off. Flatlays are made of expertly arranged products and other elements, like flowers and food, to tell the story of what a brand does. For example, are you a calligrapher? Then show off your lettering abilities on beautfiul stationary, arranged with flowers and other items that complement your style.
