Are you looking for Canva alternatives to create your own branded graphics? Well look no further In today’s post I share 5 Best Canva Alternatives For Branded Graphic Designs you should be making use of.
We’ve become more adept at using visual content tools to create our marketing and social media images – often using more than one tool to do so. Creating brand graphics gives your brand a cohesive look. I have mainly been using Canva to create graphics for my social media platforms and my free resource library. If you don’t know by know I create a free resource library to help you create beautiful content.
5 Best Canva Alternatives For Branded Graphic Designs
Crello has a large template and image library users can choose from, including illustrations, with plenty of options for various web content formats and platforms. It starts free, but key features like Animation Maker are only available for Pro subscribers.
Stencil is considered to be a lightweight Canva alternative. It makes it easy to create images for your website or social channels on the fly. It has different browser extensions so you can easily highlight text or capture an image to pull it into your design creations. It boasts more than 100,000 different quotes you can choose from to add to social media graphics. Stencil has fewer templates to choose from than other options on this list. So if you need a template to get started, Stencil may not have as many for you to choose between.
Free Stencil users are limited to creating 10 images per month and have to upgrade to the Unlimited plan costing at $12/month to get the full capabilities of the tool. Which is about the same price as what you would pay for Canva.
I have used Picmonkey for almost a year before making the switch to Canva. PicMonkey offers robust photo editing capabilities and allows users to do cool things with their images, including advanced editing, effects and filters, and making collages. PicMonkey’s original use case was for photo editing, it’s not the best alternative to Canva if you plan to use it for creating images specifically for web and social media, but it offers some templates and design assets to use for that purpose. PicMonkey does offer a seven-day free trial to test it out, after which you’ll need to start paying for its Basic or Pro subscriptions.
Easil is one beautiful curated platform! It offers some of the most advanced image editing capabilities among the Canva alternatives that also offer different templates for various platforms and web content formats. You can upload your brand assets and make their templates for other team members to create their own branded images. It also offers users its exclusive stock images so you can avoid using the same royalty-free images.
A new platform I came across whilst researching this post. Pablo is the simplest of these Canva alternatives. But it also has a place here for creating visual content quickly and easily. A ‘no frills’ tool if that is what you are looking for. Pablo is Buffer’s sidekick to allow you to create images to share to your Buffer queue.
You can also use Pablo as a stand-alone tool. However, it’s a little more basic than some of the other tools on this list. Pablo is free, once you get started. You can also easily sign up for Buffer via Pablo if you are not already a Buffer user.
