We’re a small team within Adobe that knows how hard it is to create visual content and stand out on social media. And we want to help everyone—from the smallest of businesses, to bloggers and social media marketers, to a new generation of students—communicate their ideas with impact, regardless of design experience or budget.
That’s why today we’ve launched Adobe Spark, a one-stop content shop for creating and sharing visual stories that will wow your audience on any device. Why “Spark?” To us, the name represents that small thing that can ignite something much bigger. Our tools are simple, but they can make you look pro. Check out the short video below to see how Spark is already helping people tell their stories:
Maybe you want to create fresh online twists on classic content types like flyers, brochures, or presentations. Or maybe you’re looking to share trending forms of communication like memes, magazine-style blog posts, or explainer videos. Adobe Spark lets you do all that and more from one easy-to-use online dashboard. I know, I know…#mindblown
We’ve made it easy for literally anyone to create three different kinds of content: social media posts and graphics, web stories, and animated videos. All you need is something to say and Adobe magic will take care of the rest with killer animation and beautiful designs to help bring your stories to life.
What are we talking about? Check out some of the top features below, available in the Spark web app as well as its companion iOS apps.
Spark Post makes it easy to create stunning social posts and graphics. Remix, resize, and transform your social feed in seconds!
Spark Page (previously Adobe Slate) lets anyone create beautiful web stories combining text and graphics.
Spark Video (previously Adobe Voice) offers a new, radically easier way to create animated videos. No filming required; just speak your story and customize with themes, images, icons and text.
If you already know and love Adobe Post, Slate and Voice, don’t worry—they’re still here in spirit! We simply took our popular iOS apps, gave them a makeover and new features as well as Spark-ified names, and brought them to the web so they’re available to everyone under one roof. Now you can also create on a laptop, desktop, or even Chromebook—no download required. Whether you’re in your office, at home, or working from the road, your projects will automatically sync across devices.
Oh, and did we mention it’s free?
