6 min read

Microsoft Designer is a tool to try out. As technology progresses, the landscape of design tools evolves in tandem. Among the pioneers in the realm of business applications is Microsoft. Initially comprising around seven apps, Microsoft 365 now grants new users access to over 20 applications.

A recent addition to this suite is Microsoft Designer, a design tool that has swiftly captured the attention of both designers and professionals. Whether you’re an experienced graphic artist, a marketer, a small business proprietor, or simply someone with a penchant for creating humorous memes, Microsoft Designer is a versatile tool.

This tool offers an array of features designed to streamline your design process. If you haven’t yet explored its capabilities, it’s certainly worth considering. With its integration of AI features and user-friendly interface, Microsoft Designer has the potential to elevate your design endeavours while also saving you time and resources in crafting business graphics.

Let’s delve into the key attributes of Microsoft Designer.

Intuitive and User-Friendly Interface

Microsoft Designer boasts an interface that is both intuitive and user-friendly, catering to novices and experienced designers alike. The tool provides a clean and organised workspace, allowing you to concentrate on your design without distractions.

Noteworthy user-friendly features include:
• Effortless drag-and-drop functionality
• Contextual menus
• Smooth navigation
• Prompting text to initiate your design
Upon initiation, the tool’s first prompt inquires, “Describe the design you’d like to create.” This user-friendly approach enables individuals with limited design experience to employ the tool effectively. Based on your description, the AI-powered system can generate graphics, or you have the option to upload your own.

Extensive Design Templates and Resources

A standout feature of Microsoft Designer lies in its vast collection of templates and resources. It presents an impressive array of professionally crafted templates, enabling you to swiftly embark on your design projects.

Whether you require a business card, a flyer, a social media post, or other design elements, Microsoft Designer offers diverse options. Additionally, the tool encompasses an extensive library of design resources, encompassing:
• High-quality images
• Icons
• Fonts
• Color palettes
Leveraging these resources allows you to craft visually captivating designs that resonate with your brand identity. The profusion of design assets empowers you to unleash your creativity, bringing your vision to life.

Intelligent Layout Suggestions and Design Guidance

Microsoft Designer transcends the boundaries of a typical design tool, assuming the role of a knowledgeable design assistant. Artificial intelligence allows the tool to analyse your design and provide intelligent layout suggestions and recommendations. Even if the design isn’t your forte, you can still produce impressive outcomes with the aid of this AI-powered assistant.

The AI assistance proves particularly valuable for those new to design or seeking creative inspiration. The “design assistant” offers optimal font pairings, suitable image placements, and more.

By aiding in informed design decisions, Microsoft Designer enhances the visual impact of your creations while minimising the time spent on individual designs.

Effortless Collaboration and Seamless Integration

Effective collaboration is imperative in today’s digital workspace, a fact that Microsoft Designer fully appreciates. The tool seamlessly facilitates collaborative efforts, allowing multiple users to collaborate on the same design project simultaneously.

Designs can be easily shared with team members or clients, enabling real-time feedback and edits. Furthermore, Microsoft Designer integrates smoothly with other Microsoft Office applications such as PowerPoint and Word, fostering a cohesive workflow across diverse design and documentation tasks. This integration ensures efficient teamwork and heightens overall productivity.

Accessibility and Compatibility Across Platforms

Microsoft Designer recognizes the significance of accessibility and cross-platform compatibility. The tool is available both as a web and desktop application, compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems.

Microsoft Designer accommodates your needs whether you’re working from your desktop computer or a mobile device. Moreover, the tool adheres to accessibility standards, ensuring inclusivity and usability for individuals with diverse requirements.

AI-Generated Creations: What Can It Produce?

For a touch of amusement, let’s explore what AI-generated options Microsoft Designer can offer. Our design is “a sales advertisement for orange juice featuring palm trees.”

In a matter of seconds, Microsoft Designer presents various options, though not all images may be directly relevant. It nonetheless provides numerous viable choices. If the initial outcome isn’t quite what you envisioned, a slight rephrase of your prompt may yield more suitable results.

Microsoft Designer is worth investigating if you seek a user-friendly design tool. Whether you’re an accomplished designer or a novice, its capabilities can help you save both time and resources.

I've known Lewis since working with him at CIFF in 2011. More recently, he has built-up an excellent business which supports a number of my past and present clients. He also supports my business. Lewis is first rate and equally importantly, he has built a good team around him to provide quality, responsive IT support. I can't recommend Penntech highly enough.

Friendly and approachable, but also excellent technically. As a barristers chambers we have industry-specific data protection requirements. Penntech showed in-depth knowledge about the interaction between these requirements and technical IT aspects.
