First off, I love graphic design! What can I say? I studied film, but ultimately God made me an artist, and graphics are so fun for me to make! As an artist, I definitely have a more minimalistic style. Which essentially means that when I'm makin' art, I adhere to the adage:
LESS IS ALWAYS MORE
I'm also a big fan of using what you've got, so here are my "Using What I've Got" Go-to Apps. You'll notice Photoshop is not among the list. Although if you're a serious graphic design enthusiast, by all means, get yourself a subscription to the Adobe Suite.
(Below each app are a few graphics I've made with each.)
This was the first graphic design app that I used on my phone. It's great for beginning with nice fonts and images. You can also purchase more fonts and graphics within the app.
This is a great iPhone app with great textual graphics! I love using this when I want to put quotes or text over photos.
This is an app similar to Photoshop that I believe is designed primarily for Macs. It's not as extensive as Photoshop, but it does what I need it to do. I used it to help me design posters and graphics for my group senior thesis film, We Are Not Alone.
In the words of fashion expert Tim Gunn, "Make it Work!"
So if you have a passion for making some graphics for your blog, website, Instagram, or just for fun, check out these design apps!
