Happy Holidays from all of us at Blue Zenith Web Design! 2015 was another successful year for our company, and we owe it all to our clients and readers! Without your support, Blue Zenith would not exist, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you. We strive each day to live up to the commitment we’ve made to you and your company by providing the tools and services you need to flourish!
Our Gift To You
As our holiday gift to you, we would like to share some of the online resources we recommend to friends, family, and colleagues to create and develop content. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional designer or simply an entrepreneur or business manager that wants to learn more about creating digital content – the following tools and services are free, dynamic, feature-rich, and easy to use! Of course, using design tools like these won’t turn someone into an experienced graphic designer overnight, and it is still important to seek out the services of professionals when taking on a large or important project, but creating your own content when time and money is of the essence can be extremely valuable to any entrepreneur.
Canva: Powerful And Easy Graphic Design
Graphic design is very difficult to master, and even those of us that aren’t professionals can find it problematic to create and edit even simple images. The barriers to creating great digital images aren’t just limited to talent, experience, or training. Graphic design software and digital assets such as icons and fonts can be exorbitantly expensive, pricing out many casual and even semi-professional users. Luckily, a new online service has broken down those barriers, providing a free service that almost anyone can use to create beautiful graphics and documents to accompany blog posts and social media updates and profiles. Canva.com provides a powerful editing tool, millions of images, photo filters, free icons, and hundreds of fonts to choose from, all directly through your web browser!
Create Color Schemes In Seconds With Paletton
One of the more confusing and frustrating elements of a digital property is the color scheme. Choosing a series of colors that is aesthetically pleasing can be vexing to even some experienced designers, and amateurs often fall back on choosing a color scheme based on personal taste, which can often be disastrous. Now, thanks to Paletton, anyone can quickly acquire a usable color scheme in seconds just by choosing a pleasing base color from wide color spectrum. While the schemes generated by Paletton might not be completely innovative or daring, amateur designers can rely on this service to create digital assets that appear professional and universally pleasing.
Find The Right Fonts With Wordmark.it
Like color schemes, amateur and even semi-professional designers often find choosing the right set of fonts to be a difficult and demanding process. Choosing the right fonts and typefaces is an integral part of typography, and although most of us have access to hundreds of fonts through word processing software, we often just settle for the defaults. Like Paletton, Wordmark.it takes the process of choosing an aesthetically-pleasing set of fonts and automates it, allowing almost anyone to create a digital image or document with fonts that complement one another and make your creations look professional.
Thank you again for your ongoing support, and we look forward to making 2016 an even more successful and dynamic year for everyone! In our next blog post, we will be profiling our exciting new venture, set to launch in 2016. We can’t wait to tell you more, but in the meantime, don’t be afraid to “Go Ahead. Dream Big!”
