What is Placeit?
Placeit is a design tool that’s packed with easy to use templates for all kinds of design projects. What’s different about this tool is templates are “smart.”
That means you can make adjustments right on the screen and change from a basic template to something that looks customized. It’s a quick way to create anything from a logo or brand elements to a video to share on social media.
And you don’t need access to expensive tools to do it. All manipulations happen right on the screen using simple drag-and-drop actions.
The Placeit library includes more than 26,000 smart templates with starter designs for everything from mockups to logos to videos. Plus, more templates are getting added all the time.
See for yourself — just search for what you are looking for.
Create a Brand
If you need to create a brand mark or logo, Placeit is a great place to start.
Here’s how it works:
- Start with a search using your brand name and Placeit will make template suggestions
- Pick a template based on your business (we used the fast food logo maker template)
- Adjust color to match your style or brand
- Pick out new icon elements
- Change words or fonts
- Save and export
Every element is customizable, making this a quick option when it comes to developing a logo quickly. You can mix and match elements, colors, and fonts to match your style.
It doesn’t cost anything to try it out. If you need to establish a brand presence, the Placeit Logo Maker is a good starting point.
Establish Social Media Presence
Once you have a brand concept started, design tools can help you promote your brand and establish a presence online. Creating images for social media is a big part of this.
Placeit can help with that, too. The tool has thousands of options for ad and social media templates to choose from. Use them to create static images or create engaging Instagram Stories to draw more users into your channel.
Just like with logo elements, every aspect of a social media template it customizable and it only takes a few clicks. Just remember to use a visual theme for social media that matches your brand identity with the same palette of fonts and colors.
Design Tools You’ll Love
Placeit is packed with design tools for almost any task you need to accomplish.
The Video Maker allows you to create videos for your brand in just a few minutes with images, text, and audio. Start with a template and use the same tools that power the logo maker to customize video elements before downloading your unique video.
If you have your own video clips, you can use those to make intros for your existing video content. Video content is what’s driving social media as well. Use the Instagram Story video maker to create content that will keep users double-tapping.
Pair it with the YouTube Thumbnail Maker to create professional thumbnails that will help people find your videos. The thumbnail maker includes plenty of pre-made templates to get started and everything is customizable. You’ll spend more time creating and sharing videos, not creating thumbnails.
