If you’re looking for an inexpensive online design tool, you may want to check out Lucidpress. I am probably one of the least creative people in my field so I’ve learned to use whatever help I can get.
Lucidpress offers the capabilities to design for both print and online content and includes templates from which to build. I’ve done an economic development tool with their ebook template for my county manager, annual reports, online newsletters, presentations, and flyers. The program is flexible, and the support is fantastic. If you have questions, all you have to do is fill out a short form, and they will contact you by phone or email pretty quickly. While some design programs are limited, Lucidpress allows the user a lot of freedom which helps to create unique content. It even has the capability to track how many times an online publication is opened. The price is reasonable with a year’s subscription only $155.40 for access to their Pro account.
There is a free trial so if you’re interested or in need of an easy tool to help with design, check it out!
