Move over Canva, there's a new free design tool in town

Image Description

Custom graphic design platform Sticker Mule has unveiled Studio, a free design tool that aims to take on the mighty Canva. 

The company will be hoping the tool, specifically built for organizations with limited design resources, can become one of the best photo editors for creating professional-style graphics without the skill barrier or the associated costs. 

Studio is the latest in Sticker Mule’s small suite of free online design tools for SMEs and startups, which also includes a background remover and image upscaler.

“Our goal is to give everyone the opportunity to design great print and digital products quickly and easily…Studio helps anyone craft beautiful designs in minutes,” said Anthony Constantino, Sticker Mule CEO.

 Canva killer?  

In recent years, use of simple design tools has soared, as businesses look to visually engage customers and clients, and enhance their branding without the need for professional-level software like Adobe Photoshop. 

Currently leading the pack is Canva, whose growing popularity recently led to the launch of the company’s first global ad campaign after nearly ten years in the business.

Employing a library of pre-built elements and templates, and a basic drag-and-drop system, the tool has proved popular with businesses, entrepreneurs, and SMEs.

Studio by Sticker Mule works on a similar basis. Developed over two years, the browser-based platform is packed with over 1000 customizable templates, letting users design their own logos, business cards, stickers, T-shirts, packaging, event invitations, and social media assets. Everything on the page - from images to elements, colors to text - can be switched out in a few clicks.

For those more comfortable with freestyling, there’s also the ability to create designs from scratch. Finished designs can then be exported as a PNG, JPG, PDF, or SVG and used across all content marketing channels.

As a free service, users won’t have to order their designs through Sticker Mule, although that remains an option for anyone looking for physical assets. 

Constantino, who co-founded the company in 2010, assured users that more upgrades are on the way.

“We are currently developing additional features to make Studio the Internet’s favorite design tool. Next up is the ability to share designs,” he said.

  • iPad Pro (2022) could land with the iPhone 14, but it might not be worth the wait

    If you’ve been holding out for the iPad Pro (2022) then you might have to keep holding out for quite a while longer, as the latest information on the slate suggests that it won’t be landing for at least around six months.

    That’s according to Mark Gurman (who has a good track record for Apple information) in his Power On newsletter for Bloomberg. Gurman claims that the next iPad Pro will likely land this ‘fall,’ meaning between September and November.

    That would probably mean a launch alongside the iPhone 14 range and the Apple Watch 8, both of which are expected to land in September – though it’s possible that Apple will hold two events during that period, like it did in 2020.

    In any case, whenever it does arrive, the iPad Pro (2022) will apparently feature an M2 chipset. This will reportedly have the same octa-core CPU as the M1 found in the iPad Pro (2021) range, but potentially with more GPU cores, along with speed and efficiency improvements, due to being made on a 4nm process.

    Additionally, the iPad Pro (2022) will apparently support MagSafe, like the iPhone 13 range, allowing – among other things – wireless charging. This is something we’ve heard a number of times now.

    Gurman doesn’t say anything more than that about the iPad Pro (2022), but if it really is that far out, then it’s not surprising that news about the slate is limited.

    Of course, we’d take Gurman’s claims with a pinch of salt, but given his track record and the fact that there’s no imminent sign of the iPad Pro (2022), there’s a high chance that he’s right.

    Analysis: don’t wait, just buy

    With the prospect of a wait of six months or more, you might be wondering whether it’s worth holding out for Apple’s next iPad, and the answer is probably not.

    The M1 chipset in the iPad Pro (2021) is already more powerful than most apps or users need, and by the sounds of things the M2 will only be a fairly small upgrade anyway. MagSafe meanwhile is more of a nice-to-have feature than an essential one for most people.

    And beyond that? Other leaks have suggested that the 11-inch iPad Pro (2022) could get a mini-LED screen, which actually is quite a big change, though the current model’s display is already great. And the iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) already has a mini-LED screen, so no significant changes are expected for its bigger sibling's display.

    Indeed, the screen sizes will probably remain the same too based on current leaks, so despite the potentially long wait for the 2022 models, it doesn’t sound like they’ll be very big upgrades at all.
