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.

  • Google Search full dark mode is starting to roll out for some users

    A new even-darker-than-dark-mode for Google Search for desktop is slowly rolling out to some users online, offering hope for better battery life and spared eyesight.

    The user reports, first flagged by 9to5 Google, aren't very widespread and the rollout might just be a test. Some users who saw their previous dark mode go fully black from the usual deep grey found, after a short time, their themes reverted back to the existing dark mode theme.

    Officially, the new Dark Mode background color is set to the HTML color code #000000, which is pure black, while the other colors on the site, like blue for hyperlinks, are somewhat more bold-faced to better stand out against the black background.

    At this time, no one at TechRadar has gotten the purely black dark mode, so we can't confirm that it is in fact rolling out. We've reached out to Google for comment and will update this page if and when we hear back or if our dark modes change to the full black theme.

    Analysis: Google Search Black Mode, when even Dark Mode is too bright for delicate eyes

    Dark mode has taken off in recent years, with everything from Microsoft Windows to Facebook and Twitter to various Google services introducing darker themes.

    White or green text on a black background is a pretty old idea, as for as computers go. Today's command-line interface services inside major operating systems like Windows and macOS used to be the operating system for every computer and is still the preferred way for system admins to manage large IT infrastructure.

    Why personal computers switched to blindingly bright interfaces is a complicated story (or it was really just marketing) but it wasn't to preserve our eyesight. Over the years, we've come to appreciate that dark mode is easier on your eyes. 

    The benefits, though, go beyond our health. 

    As more people adopt laptops as their primary computer systems, finding ways to extend battery life becomes a chief concern. The biggest power draw on a laptop is its display, so the darker you can keep the display for longer, the longer your battery will hold out. 

    This in itself should be enough to make dark mode the default theme for all modern interfaces. Whether the industry is willing to go ahead and do what we all know they should is another question.
