Many teams today use social media design apps to create stunning visual content for their audience. These apps can be web-based or downloaded on to the device and are pretty keen to what platforms like Twitter or Facebook requires. If your company is using Buffer to schedule out your social media content, then you are probably familiar with Pablo. Pablo, is an extension created by Buffer to facilitate in creating a visual with the need for a designer.
While extensions like these help you put a picture up and decorate it with words, it doesn’t quite fit all of your needs. Here are four more social media design apps to help you achieve your #designgoals.
Social Media Design for Free, Canva
Canva gives you the freedom of creating content that fits with your branding. It is almost too good to be true that an app like this provides almost everything you would need to style catchy content, but it does. You can use from free templates (or premium for a fee), and use proven patterns to create a stunning visual. The ability to upload your own images is a great gem and its drag and drop features make it easy to play around until you find what catches your eye.
Now that it has a companion mobile app, you can design on the go and upload from your device without being tethered to a desktop. A truly mobile experience that is sure to catch the attention of the right customer.
Wordplay with WordSwag
If part of your strategy are quotes and fun facts, WordSwag is worth looking into. The app, available for download in the App and Play Store, has a myriad of fonts that easily create beautiful layouts for your post. At loss for words? That’s easy with hundreds of preloaded captions that really describe the right emotion and feel you want your audience to feel.
The app boast that it is like having a “designer in your pocket” and quite frankly, they are right.
Moving Pictures with Flipagram
If picture paints a thousand words, then what about several pictures? And maybe some music? Flipagram utilizes all of your senses by using audio clips to get you to sing along and a gallery of pictures to keep your audience wanting more. Aside from the watermark forever etched on the content (which can be taken for a price), the app does a great job of helping catch attention especially on Instagram. If your company just had a big event, tease some pictures on the app and post it with an invite to see more of the pictures taken during the event, or a landing page to grab their information.That’s a great use of social media design.
