I am going to show you some online designing platforms so that you can easily create the design you want. And you will be happy to know that some of these online platforms you can also design for free with professional-quality templates. You can also use your creativity to design better.

If you want to create posters, logos, banners, etc for your business for free then, this blog is for you.

So let’s start without delay.



The platform we will talk about at the beginning has almost all the qualities to be at the top of our list. Canva is a graphic design platform used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents, and other visual content. I use Canva more than Photoshop because Canva has so many ready-made templates, and also I can edit them to make my template more attractive. 

Let’s have a look at the Pros and Cons of Canva.

  • On Canva, you can choose the template of your choice from almost thousands of free templates and edit as you like by putting your logo on them.

  • On Canva, you can select the size of your image to your liking, for example: If you want a Facebook cover photo size, you can easily get that option.

  • Canva saves all your designs so you can re-edit them later.

  • You will find almost all social media templates here. You can have trending templates for almost everything starting from Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok, and many more.

  • The interface of Canva is much simpler than the rest of the online graphic design platforms.

  • In this graphic design platform, you will get many free elements that will help to make your design more attractive.

  • Canva has its own app for mobile users, which is available for Android and iOS platforms.

  • In my opinion, Canva’s images and templates almost the same, but that’s not so much a concern.

  • Most of its elements cannot be used without a premium account so, free users may face some problems.


If you list the world’s best online photo editors, there is no doubt that Pixlr will be number one on that list. With the AI-powered tools of Pixlr, It is a browser photo editor for all your editing needs. Many people also call it an alternative to Photoshop. Yes, you will find some tools in this online photo editor that you have also used in Photoshop. That’s why we named it Photoshop Online. 

Let’s take a look at some of the good and bad aspects of Pixlr.

  • The first thing I like best is its interface. Pixlr’s interface is very simple, and anyone can easily use it.

  • Secondly, you will get a lot of premium tools for free, such as Lasso tool, Wand select, Marquee Select, Heal, Liquify, etc., which you have seen in Photoshop.

  • In Pixlr, you will find many elements (overlay, border, sticker, shape) that may not be in Photoshop.

  • You will find many images in its stock search that you can use in your editing work.

  • You can also edit using keyboard shortcuts in it. There are many good aspects of Pixlr that you can understand if you use it.

  • I often find that we have been using Canva more than Pixlr lately because Canva offers a larger array of templates, and the drag and drop feature in Canva is a little easier to use.

  • Sometimes you may feel some glitch if your internet connection is not good.

Gravit Designer

Gravit Designer is a free online vector graphic design platform. You can use it to design websites, create interfaces, make illustrations, or design the artworks of entire games. Thousands of people are benefiting from using Gravit Designer. 

So, Let’s discuss the pros and cons of Gravit designer.

  • At the beginning, I want to talk about its interface. This is the easiest interface I’ve ever seen. I hope you can work on Gravit Designer very easily.

  • You will find some advanced editing tools, such as the pen tool, pointer tool, knife tool, and many more that you can understand if you use. One of its remarkable features is the SVG editing tool that offers users unparalleled precision.

  • Gravit designer also allows you to work using keyboard shortcuts very easily.

  • On the left side above, there are three visible tabs for libraries, tutorials, and layers. The library tab provides a comprehensive set of drag-and-drop tools. The tutorial tab offers users guidance when using the platform for the first time.

  • In addition to online, you can also use the software that works on ALL platforms.

  • Because of its lack of shareable features, you may find it annoying to work with your team.

  • You can’t use many tools in free service. Which may force you to give it up.

  • Gravit designer doesn’t allow a user to export images above a specific size at 300 dpi depending upon the available memory of a user’s PC.

  • And last but not least, if your internet connection is not good then, you can’t expect good work from its online platform.


Have you ever thought that you can design 3D on a website? Yes, this time, I will talk about an online design platform through which you can easily sign up for a website and do 3D design, electronics, and coding. Tinkercad is a free, online 3D modeling program that became available in 2011, and soon after that, it gained popularity. 

Let’s discuss some of the good and bad aspects, which are called pros and cons.

  • First of all, it is very easy to compare with other 3D design platforms. People of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest, can easily use it.

  • If anyone wants to learn basic 3D design, Tinkercad is the perfect platform for them.

  • What I like best is its low production costs, quick product completion. Another advantage is that it will save your product prototypes in its cloud storage.

  • Here, you will find many 3D models created by the community. Tinkercad also allows for a 2D and 3D input, which permits you to integrate other models into your new plans.

  • Besides all, you will get electronics and coding features in Tinkercad.

  • First of all, it is for beginners who are interested in learning 3D design. They can get the basic idea with it in the beginning. Its capabilities have a limit.

  • Lastly, since it is an online design platform, you must have a good internet connection.
