There are a number of graphic design tools that can help make a difference to your business.

Let’s take a look at how they can help you make more of your market share.

First off, graphic design is an important element in your online presence. A poorly designed website can mean losing potential customers. Remember, your website is the face of your business. A clunky, ugly looking design and layout is more than off-putting, it can mean disaster for your selling point.

That’s where graphic design tools can play their part.

A clever and well-designed website shows you are professional and will be easy to deal with. Studies back this up with users ranking well laid-out sites as being more trustworthy.

 

DESIGNED TO WORK

Large companies can often afford to hire professional designers with the experience and know-how to raise brand recognition. Smaller companies, who don’t have the budget or luxury of designers, can make more of their profile with the help of free graphic design tools.

There are a number of free graphic design tools to help you make more of your online profile. Here is a cost-effective way to make more of your brand with easy graphic design.

 

The top Free Graphic Design Tools

With an offering of a range of ready-made templates – including; marketing emails, social media posts as well as posters, flyers and even logos – Canva is a popular tool for inexperienced designers to give their designs a professional look. With a dedicated infographic maker, you have a rock-solid starting point to get more traffic.

It’s easy to use and makes it simple to play around with images, text, icons, shapes and borders to create something of your own design. It’s Australian too.

Pixlr

As a free graphic design software, Pixlr promotes itself as 'the most popular online photo editor in the world'. That’s a big call. It does claim to have more than 600 effects, overlays and borders. It enables the user to do all the usual things you would expect from a photo editor.

This includes: resizing and cropping to the dreaded red-eye removal and even teeth whitening.

If you've been using Photoshop, it’s fairly similar. You will probably find Pixlr's user interface easy to pick up. Again, it’s a free app that is available for both iOS and Android.

When it comes to Infographics, Infogram offers one of the more popular graphic tools around.

It has a variety of graphs, charts and maps to access. Importantly, it also gives you the ability to upload pictures and videos in order to create engaging infographics.

Those infographics are based on a spreadsheet style that you might find on Excel. It is easy for the user to edit and see results change in real time. The best part is that once you’re happy and locked off your infographic, you can publish it to the Infogram website, embed it to your own site or share it via social media.
