Graphic Designer iPhone Apps

Here are the top seven best iPhone apps for graphic designers:

  1. 1. Font Game :  Here you select fonts in order to get up close and personal with them. The idea is to see how the fonts scale up or down. It is literally a game, so you get to unwind a little bit while learning the peculiarities of specific fonts.
  2. 2. Palettes 2.0 : Creating a pleasing color layout is one of the biggest challenges of graphic design. You don’t want to jar the viewer too badly, nor do you want it to be so boring that they won’t look any closer. This app allows you to create a color palette by grabbing from photographs and websites, or adding colors from different color models.
  3. 3. Simple Mind Touch: This app is useful for when you’re brainstorming or need a place to structure your thoughts. You create a flow chart with your thoughts and ideas, then you can color code each grouping. It is an easy-to-use program that allows you to get the ideas out of your head and into the world.
  4. 4. WhatTheFont : This program identifies fonts in photos, magazines, posters and more. If you’ve ever seen a font that you really like and want to use, but can’t name it, WhatTheFont does it for you. Capture the font and refer back to it later when you start your design.
  5. 5. Sketches 2 : A great program for when you need to visually express an idea through drawing. You can write down notes, make diagrams, and make simple sketches. Great for when a quick outline is sufficient for the idea at hand.
  6. 6. Loupe : An awesome app that captures a color and creates a swatch. You don’t even have to remember what that color was you saw somewhere and try to recreate it at home. Loupe saves the color as you saw it, making an easy reference for when you need it.
  7. 7. Paper Sizes : Yes, this is an actual application. Sometimes the memory fails and you can’t remember the standard classification of a size of paper. Paper Sizes is a handy reference guide for those times.

Graphic design is a very rewarding career. Maximize your creativity with these apps, and increase your income as well.

      I have tried sketches 2. It’s great

    • Sally Dahlsten

      That looks like a good collection. Palettes 2.0 seems to be more useful, I think I'll give it a try. And I got your page bookmarked, will keep coming back. Cheers!

      excellent list! altough i would add “DesignerTools” app for iphone instead of “Paper Sizes”. I found it a much complete app. It contains information such as Paper Sizes, Web Safe Areas, Font Samples and so on… A must have for Graphic/Web Designers!
