 (Free) Design Tools for Entrepreneurs
Lauren Thompson
TA Advisor

We are in the second full week of National Entrepreneurship Month which means another brief article of great information for Entrepreneurs who are looking for assistance in the wonderful world of design. Boosting your online image can be a challenge, especially if you do not have the funding to hire a graphic designer. This leaves you with the option of doing it yourself. Here are a few FREE tools that you can use.

  • Canva: Canva offers a robust library of design templates that have a “drag-and-drop” feature for easy editing. They also have a library of free and paid images to help assist you in creating a professional looking graphic that can be used on social media, on your website and more.

  • Infogr.am: Infogr.am is great for creating visuals of data. This includes anything from charts to maps, to reports and more. They offer pre-made, high-quality templates so that all you need to do is focus on imputing the data.

  • Prezi: Prezi is an awesome tool that allows businesses to tell a story of their product or business. Their tool enables users to create a story that is more visually interesting than the typical slideshow presentation.

  • Fonts: If you’re looking to spruce up your look via text, you may want to check out Font Squirrel or DaFont. These sites are great resources for free, downloadable fonts that you can add to your computer and use on any project.
