When it comes to graphic design, everything seems confusing. How many times did you ask yourself: “Does this color palette make any sense?” or “Are my images too stocky?”. Well, things are going to change. One important tip about design is that you don’t have to work all by yourself. There are plenty of apps & tools that will completely change your experience. Let’s get into it.
Do my colors contrast enough?
This is one of my holy go-to apps. All you have to do is insert your colour code in that small case & let it do its magic.
Do my colours match?
If you have to ask yourself that, then no, they don’t. I’ve been using this tool for a few months now, and it’s a life-saver. You only have to choose your base colour & the app will create a colour palette perfect for your design.
Are my images too “stocky”?
Free stock images & icons that look as natural as possible. Does it even need a description?
What font should I use?
The best app I know for, obviously, font combinations. Thank you, Canva, for making our lives easier.
This image is perfect but pixelated. What should I do?
Icons8 it’s the Superman of the graphic design world. It literally turns any pixelated photo into a masterpiece. And it’s free. Mind-blowing, isn’t it?
These are some of the go-to free graphic design tools that I use every single day. I hope they’ll help you be more confident with your work & create that killer design you’ve always dreamed about.
Even if these apps are great and can help you enormously in your artistic journey, there are times when you encounter some challenges that nothing seems to help you face.
