Create with Visme

I spend a good part of my work day on images: choosing, sizing, making sure complete photo attribution is provided … so I have tried several image creation services over the years.

Right now I’m getting to know Visme.co, which boasts an intuitive interface between me (not a graphic artist) and a robust set of tools that include:

  • Extensive stock photo library
  • Large selection of fonts*
  • Templates for social media graphics, infographics, printables, and presentations
  • Photo enhancement tools to increase color saturation, add filters, blur, and overlay
  • Photo grid (collage) capability
  • Support for branded content

This is just the tip of the creative iceberg: Visme is there to make your work (and, therefore, you) look good, even if you don’t have an art degree.

What else can you create with Visme?

Check out Visme: it’s free to try and easy to use.

*I fully admit to getting lost amid the many fonts available for use in projects! I can spend a long time choosing just the right font. The “Font Pairing” option is a great help in choosing two fonts that look good together.

On Demand

Last night TheKid had a rehearsal, which means that I got in at 9:30 after the Mom’s Taxi run. And then I sat down at my computer and decided to finish up some logo work for work. We’ve got a Virtual Progressive Dinner coming up and I wanted to make a special logo for each course.

Progressive-550x260So I created the last few logos and before I knew it, it was 11 PM (more than an hour after I like to get to sleep.)

I dreamed about working in Canva all.night.long.

When I went to wake up TheKid this morning, I told him about this, and he said to me, “You should have asked me what to dream about before you went to bed.”

“You can dream on demand?”

“Yeah. It’s easy.”

I don’t think I can do that. But I’m not going to be doing any graphic work or playing any word-puzzle games online before I go to sleep anymore, because when I do that kind of thing, it stays in my head all night. I’ll have to stick to reading novels after 9 PM.
