Top 3 Resources for Branding and Website Designers
I am thrilled to share my top 3 resources for Branding & Website Designers! I use these 3 platforms on a daily basis and they have completely changed my workflow and business. If you are a graphic designer looking for some game-changing apps to simplify your life, check these out:
1 - CANVA
When I'm in a pinch and need a quick graphic but don't want to spend the extra time in Illustrator/Photoshop I jump over to Canva (free app + website) and use their amazing FREE templates to create social media graphics of any kind (insta square, pinterest post, facebook banners, business cards, brochures, the list goes on.... and on...) This is a resource I even use for client collateral! YUP - it's totally O.K. just make sure you have them download the PDF (for print) file, you can easily share the files with them via email or the direct link and you can even allow them editing permissions! If you want to be able to use their branded fonts (they have sooo many google fonts and even fonts from creative market!) simply upload png's or upgrade to an inexpensive ($10 mo) paid account to upload your own!
YA'LL - this is literally my MOST USED RESOURCE like... ever! Why? Because it is the most magical pool of completely FREE STOCK photography (that doesn't suck)! Amazing photographers from all over the world submit their work to this site every week! They have everything from flat lays to perfect landscape shots, and even industry specific niches!
You're probably like uhh.. how does this relate to design? Well, designing your instagram feed is quite important given that it is one of the first places you interact / impress your clients! I use the FREE unum app on my phone to plan out my feed and review analytics *BONUS* Pair unum with the app "when to post" and you're golden!
