An online graphic design tool - Designmaker from

When you hear the word ‘graphic design’, what comes up in your mind? What most people can agree though, is that design can be time-consuming and too expensive to create. Brainstorming and coming up with new and original content are taxing, and they are especially hard to do when you are pressed for time. Lacking experience or the budget needed to create high-quality graphic designs can also be a huge issue; this situation particularly applies to startups or small businesses. 

And yet – we can’t deny how crucial graphic design can be; for it is the perfect balance of both aesthetics and functionality. Without us realizing it, graphic design is needed for whatever we use, see and touch in our daily lives.

Designing an amazing template using free online design tool - Designmaker.

Commercial-wise, design is a major determinant of whether or not a product sells. Being a consumer yourself, you must know how a product’s or visual ads’ design may affect your purchase decisions. When encountering a brand with consistent and quality-designed products and visual ads, wouldn’t you want to keep buying from them? Hence, it is undeniable how design can shape consumers’ behavior. 

Now for the million-dollar question, if good design is so important, why is it hard to obtain?
