Visme Review

The average person remembers only 20% of what they read but 80% of what they see. 90% of information transmitted to our brain is visual. That’s why visual content has become the single most important way to communicate, especially in today’s business world.So what should you do? Hire an expensive graphic designer or spend hours trying to learn how to use a complicated design software?Ladies and gentlemen, meet Visme!

P.S. For example, here’s how IBM is using it to reduce their content creation costs by almost 75%.

The Process

This review starts with the design process by letting you select the type of media you want to design. See below:

Visme Media Types

In this case, I have chosen printables. This review will let you experience how graphics are designed so you can see for yourself, but will not be a comprehensive tutorial as we are merely doing a review.

Once you determine what you would like to create, there are options for templates. The number of templates are many and the quality is top notch. See below:

Visme Flyer templates

I have selected a blank template, this is how the editor look like:

Visme editor

You can zoom in and out changing the size of the editor as you please:

Visme Editor 2

As seen above, there are many icons and graphics you can choose from and there are even colour options.

There are preset components like text blocks you can use, making the design process faster:

Visme Text Block

In this case, I have chosen the "Brand Identity" for this review.

Once you have finalised the project, you are able to export it into various formats:

Visme Output

There are JPEG, PNG, PDF, PPTX and HTML5 formats available. For this review, I have used PDF.

You are able to select preset measurements for each project. I believe that Visme is geared towards an American audience, because they do not have A3, A4 and other sizes available. Nevertheless, at least with print material, the unmatching sizes do not pose much of a problem once you set "Shrink to the printable area".

Visme Printable

See here for another sample of a printable ready for printing:

Sample Works

Visme is easy to use and can really help you create visually stunning output. Here are some things I designed with Visme:

Visme - a Design Tool with many applications

One thing that sets apart Visme from other graphic design tools such as Canva, is the availability of presets for many different types of visual media. You can create nearly anything with Visme.

Visme is used for other forms of content such as anything from Flyers, to Scatter Plots, and Social Media Graphics.


Visme is used to make Graphs and Charts:

Visme is used to also create Printables such as Flyers

Visme is also used to publish Survey results:

Visme Demo Videos





Visme is a powerful graphic design tool for non-designers. It simplifies the graphic design process and speeds it up greatly. It is definitely on par with Canva and similar services. One shortcoming is that the image galleries do not contain Font Awesome. If it were possible to access these icons for Visme projects, designing would be even faster and more efficient. I love using this tool and hope you will purchase it by clicking the banners.
