Friday Favorite - You Can Design Too

Blog Post 092817.jpg

Happy Friday Favorite!

I must make an admission. I am not a designer. Nope, not at all. Luckily, they make an app for that. My Friday Favorite is Adobe Spark! See the blog header image? I made it with Adobe Spark.

I know how important it is for a brand to have formality. The imagery you choose needs to tell your story and stay consistent across platforms. Meaning whatever you are doing with your social media imagery, it should look like what you send out in an email and what people will see when they visit your website. I also know it’s not always practical to hire a designer to create everything - so that’s why finding a tool you can use to design is so important.

With my subscription, I can make graphics, web pages or videos. There are so many options and the best part is everything I create is branded. (I did work with a designer to build and design my website.) Adobe Spark lets you add your colors, fonts and logo. It’s so simple to use and I absolutely love the app. I can create my social posts on the fly. It’s easy to pull in images from my camera roll or use their stock. Currently, I’m using the program mainly for social. However, with a single click, you can resize anything. That is one of my favorite features.

I also use the app 99% of the time. The desktop version works just as well, but it’s so nice to create on my phone so I can save the images to my pictures for posting.

Adobe sends emails with new features and templates they’ve added. Also, you can search through templates and “remix” them to be your own. Everything can be changed in the template. Plus, they’ve created templates using my brand assets. The templates are set up for posters, flyers, social, digital ads, signs and so much more.   

If you’re looking for a way to create polished assets with minimal effort I highly recommend Adobe Spark. It’s been a lifesaver.

Do you have any apps that you love for design? Share them in the comments.
