Create Magical Graphics With Your Own Design Wizard
When creating a promotion for your blog or website it is always important to take the time to make sure your graphics and media are professional and of high quality. Most people are not design engineers, but everyone can create stunning graphics with a design wizard. Well That is exactly what I have for you today with my design wizard review for 2019.
It can be very confusing and also a bit intimidating to think that as a website or blog owner, you will need to create graphics. You may think it is not something you are familiar with and would have a hard time knowing where to go and how it is even possible.
I am sure you have seen them online in various places, great looking banners with customized text to match which look professionally done. Well they are but not all by professionals, most are created by folks just like you and me. By using an online resource it is possible to make very good looking professional quality images or banners for your site.,
Instead of trying to find a picture online that you can use without licensing issues or copyright infringement, try using the images pre loaded within design wizard, search for what your topic is and see what the templates come up with for that size and shape of image you are wanting.
No worries if you do not find one you like, just download your own and update accordingly. Find Free usable images from Pexels.com, or Pixabay.com. Make sure you drop in a tip now and then to the creator of the image, it helps keep the site running.
What is Design Wizard?
Design Wizard is an online graphics and video creation service for you to use for your online promotions. The interface is fairly intuitave and easy to use, you can sign up for free and use the service. There is an option for a monthly fee that offers more functionality and several credits that can be used to download additional images or videos.
Design Wizard offers 15,000 Templates and over 1,245,420 images to work with. Not to mention that you can upload your own images as well as use those in one of the templates
The program offers features to create graphics for many of your latest offers. The pre-formatted templates are great since they already are set to the proper size for what you are needing. For example a Facebook post will have different dimensions than a Pinterest post traditionally. You also have the option to select a custom size that works for you.
There is no software to download with this tool. It is strictly a browser based tool which requires a membership to use- No worries, you can use it for FREE,
See the video below to see how easy it is to make you own graphics
As the video above demonstrates it is fairly easy to create custom graphics for your website or blog.
Pro’s and Cons
In order to properly review this tool we must do some pros and cons about the service. I have had overall a good experience with design wizard and have been happy with the results. But there are a few issues which will come up in the cons section.
How about we start with the good stuff-
- Easy to navigate interface
- Pre formatted templates for desired image sizes
- Can make promotional Videos- Great new feature just added a few months ago
- Free membership that provides good value for the service
- Great customer service
- Good response to questions or comments
- Multiple membership levels
- Has an Affiliate program
- Many sales are offered
The interface as shown below ( A partial view of the interface) is easy to navigate and provides options to create images or videos with just a few clicks.
There are many promotional perks added at times throughout the year. For example Design Wizard just offered a promo for a Pro plan for “Life” for a one time fee of $50. I did it and have not looked back, now I get all the benefits of Pro and never have to worry about it.
My point is that even as a Free member you have the ability to create stunning images or videos for your site. As time goes on you will receive several offers from the marketing team that are very good that makes the paid options very reasonable. They are already reasonable but many better offers will be sent your way. ( see costs area below)
They also offer an Affiliate Program which helps make it possible for business owners to make a side income from this service. I am an affiliate for them as well, but this review is my unbiased opinion of there service. I happen to like what they have to offer so I have no problem sharing the information good or bad and also promote them whenever possible.
- No Info graphic templates- For use on your website or social media
- Videos cost a minimum of $4.99 each when they are downloaded and up to $16.99 for HD Quality.
The fact that you can make videos with this program is a huge plus. However the costs is a bit steep in my opinion for each video. This is still a great feature since videos are where the market is going, they will be an important part of marketing promotions going forward.
Just as a comparison. One of the online videos creation products out there has many FREE videos you can create and use so the fact that Design Wizard makes you pay per video is a bit of over kill.
There are templates for many types and sizes of graphics, just not info graphics which tend to be larger. I use info graphics for Pinterest and they work well since they are huge and a very nice way to showcase my information
How this benefits you
This is overall a great tool for your graphics design needs. It is very easy to use and download your graphics. Besides the info graphics not being available that is not as big a deal as it sounds since you also have a custom dimensions option to shape your image to whatever pixel sizes you want.
The combination of graphics and being able to make short promotional videos on this site make it a very important tool in your arsenal. You have outstanding support if issues pop up.
A nice feature is the fact that even though some images cost to download, the fee is one time only, and you can use the image forever without copyright legal issues coming up.
For example one of the competitor sites to Design Wizard offers the ability to use an image for $1 as well, the catch is that it is only good for 24 hrs so to have it forever costs much more. Besides who uses an image for only 24 hrs?
So the value of this service is clear and I have noticed since being a member a continual improvement approach for this site. They are always working on new features and frequently offer great promotions.
Design wizard comes with a Free membership that is a really good way to get used to the system, since you get access to everything,
They charge a fee for some of the images used, many are Free but some require a Fee or a Credit. Normally that is $1 and the cool part is that you get to use that image forever for that price. While other services charge you and you only get a limited time to use the image. Even though it has a fee this is a nice feature.
As you can see above there are three plans available for Design Wizard. The free plan is one of the better Free plans in the industry as it provides full functionality and you still get the benefits of using the service. The kicker is many of the images cost $1 to download so instead of Paying for 10 images a month, why not just go Pro and get customer support to help you out and $60 in credits per month, which means you can download those images and not run out of credits.
Just like I mentioned above about offers that come out that make this even more affordable. There is an offer out for the Cyber Monday period 2018, of a “Expert Plan” for just $29 for a Year which is a savings of about 85% of normal costs.
I am not trying to promote to you, I am just showing examples of what offers come up frequently so you can realize even better Value from this service. I will provide a link for this offer as the time gets closer to the promotion
Wrapping it up
Do I recommend it? Yes without a doubt. This is a great tool and is a regular part of my routine for my graphics needs
Is it a scam? No way. Great tool to use for your business. making your promotions stand out is a must, this tool will do that for you.
This review has gone over the main factors of design wizard. The video above shows how easy it is to make your graphics come to life. Trying the free membership is the way to test this out for yourself. No need to pay for a monthly or yearly fee until you are comfortable with the tool and can set aside the funds for it.
What graphics tool do you use? Im curious to see what others use. Feel free to comment below.
Thank you and have a prosperous day
