All in One Design Software

This is a new category we added last year, let’s face it, it is very convenient to have your graphics editor and your design assets all in one roof! This is the main reason, all-in-one design software as a service (SaaS) solutions have been very popular the past few decades. As a matter of fact, I have been using less and less of my desktop design software and using these web based (and some mobile based) solutions to design! Most were created to address the gap between the business and how fast social media has been evolving and cope up with the demands of regular content creation.

Canva

Canva may be the most popular design all-in-one solution out there! This is for good reasons, as the software is very user-friendly and has a mobile and table app! There’s a template for everything and almost all templates are FREE! The best templates and Design Assets are of course available for Canva PRO users as well as the feature to schedule social media postings, animations, magic resize, and more. Canva recently acquired Pixabay and Pexels so this has incredibly increased the images inside the platform.

Crello

Crello is a project of DepositPhotos, a popular stock photo marketplace. The strength of Crello is for its built in templates for Social Media Animations so you can easily share for instagram posts and stories. You can buy stock photos at $1 each from the app itself for more options. It recently reached 1.5M users and is growing daily, thanks to its growing number of templates and introduced a Team plan.

Designwizard

Design Wizard is a new comer in our Designer software platform All-in-one! Design Wizard takes the time and effort out of creating visual content. They have thousands of templates and over 1 million images that can be instantly tailored to suit every Designpreneur needs.

RelayThat

RelayThat is one of the newest tools that I have been falling in love with because of the ease and fast workflow for creating different social media assets for just about every social media channel. You start with Design Assets which can be imported from your website or upload it manually, change the colors, add some stock photos, and voila! It does everything using it’s built-in AI and thousand templates. Check them out via my link above!

Visme

Lastly, but definitely not the least, is Visme. Originally for making powerful Infographics and Presentations, fast and easy, Visme has evolved into a very powerful tool that you can use for just about anything that you want to design. Visme will be evolving to its 3rd version of the Platform this Q4 of 2019 so 2020 it may introduce Videos to its platform! This entire graphic for the Designpreneurs Toolkit 2020 was designed using the Visme platform.

As they say, videos are the future and most certainly, Videos will dominate the Social Media world. What does that mean?
