• Thanks Donna, you rock 🙂

  • Vilma Betancourt

    I am not familiar with Brandr or Studio but will definitely give them a try. Thank you for always sharing your tools, tips & tricks with your followers and for breaking down the explanation so that even the newbies to the visual content creation world can understand. I love the visuals you create and the clever ways you play with words and pictures. Here’s to a fantastic 2016!

    • Hey Vilma! Thanks for stopping by. Glad to hear you like the sound of them. There are a lot of mobile tools out there, and I have plenty on my phone but only tend to use 2 or 3 consistently – Over, Studio and Wordswag or Typorama, so I think Brandr will be one that I use more for sure. And the beauty of Brandr is that you can give it a try for free and see if it is a good fit for you. And thanks so much for your kind words. I hope you have an awesome 2016 too!

    I use canva. Are there reasons to change??

    • Hey Anna – no, no reason to change if you are using Canva well and you have time to create (or batch) images on a desktop. although of course you could add it to the mix. I use Canva all the time, but I also have a couple of mobile based tools that I tend to use when I am not at a desktop. One way you could use Brandr is for those “on the fly” images you create when you are out during the day or you want to get something up quickly. But for small businesses who don’t have that luxury of time (perhaps they are a 1 person operation, they are working outside all day) then Brandr is perfect as it’s all mobile-based, and that’s sometimes the entire hub of their business. Hope that makes sense.

  • Sounds brilliant, Donna! Thanks for sharing. I was thinking businesses needed something like this! And here it is!

    • No problems Louise, of course it’s not a replacement for many of the great tools we use including Canva but I think for a small business owner who don’t have the luxury of sitting at a desktop batching images, and want to get started with creating images quickly easily and quickly (or use pre-created ones) it’s a great option. They are often out and about all day and being able to create and post on the fly is super important (and I love that Studio overlays are accessible as there are some really cool ones and lots of them!).

  • Thanks for giving us nice info. I appreciate this post.

    • You are very welcome Martha – glad you liked it!

  • Thanks Donna. I use Canva and love it but will try Studio and Brandr. They could be perfect from some of my small biz clients, too.

    • Hey Diane – yes Canva is awesome (it’s my GO TO tool) but these two are definitely working out on mobile for sure!

    Perfect timing Donna,
    As I am about to revisit/re-start your Visual Content Creation…got way behind

    • Hi John – glad you liked it – have a great week!

  • This is my first time of reading anything about Brandr. From this review Brandr seems to have must-have features that visual creators for businesses require. The feature of Double Whammy is so appealing and I can wait to try it. I am heading to the link to make the most of this app. Thanks for sharing this piece on an alternative software for creating appealing images.

    • No worries Sunday – I am having fun playing with it. There are a lot of great apps that I love using on mobile but the fact that this taps into Studio and is designed for small business owners is quite handy – especially for people just starting out!

  • Thanks for sharing this article Great job!

    • Glad you liked it Mary – thanks so much for stopping by!

  • The Social Gecko

    Thanks for the article Donna! I’m a Canva devotee, but will definitely kick the tires on Brandr!

    • You’re very welcome and yes, I love being a crash test dummy for tools! Definitely worth testing it out to use along with Canva.
