No one would deny that it takes a lot of creativity to be a graphic designer. But when there are deadlines looming around the corner, you can’t wait around for the muse to come calling. There’s not much satisfaction in building a clever brochure from the ground up if the client needs four different looks by tomorrow.
That’s why designers and printers work with photo editing software to begin with. Platforms like Adobe Photoshop not only provide the tools you need to tweak that image to perfection, they also come with templates that can be a welcome shortcut. But as Photoshop users know all too well, those templates are finite.
Get ready to expand that library, because BrandPacks Professional Templates are here.
This service is a godsend for hard-working designers. A subscription gets you access to more than 1,100 templates, all of which are fully compatible with Photoshop and Illustrator, with more being added all the time. Open them up in your photo editor of choice, and you’ll find they’re each a breeze to work with. The source files have clearly named layers and components that allow you to mix, match and finesse with ease. Even if you end up just using the skeleton of the original design, having that clean jumping-off point can be a huge timesaver.
If you need just an image to work with, BrandPacks has that too. There are tons of free stock photos up for grabs on the service, all of which are fully licensed. The templates are designed to work with a range of needs in both print and web advertising. You’ll find images optimized for banners, rack cards, flyers, tri-fold brochures, restaurant menus and more. The selection is vast, but it’s carefully organized into categories like School & Education, Nightlife or Seasonal so you can find what you’re looking for right away.
Right now, you can pick up a one-year subscription to BrandPacks for just $19 – more than 70% off the MSRP.
