Welcome to Venngage! Start designing by choosing your first template and making it your own.

Pick a template

Start on the templates page. Use search or category filters to browse thousands of professionally designed templates that you can customize to fit your needs. Or, create a custom design from a blank canvas.

A user scrolls through templates on Venngage's 'Featured' page, displaying multiple infographics and other design templates.

Customize your design

Pass your cursor over the preview tiles and you'll see two options: Preview or Create. Click Create on a template to open it in the Editor and start customizing!

and saving it to your My Designs page.


Use the left sidebar to add elements

Click on a text style, like "Title" or "Text" to add a text box to the design canvas. 

A user in the Editor clicks a Title text box in the left sidebar and a title-styled textbox appears in the on the design canvas, which displays a design with a light blue background, an icon of a person wearing a purple shirt, black pants and a black tie, and text in a white box, including the heading 'Marketing Plan Design Tips'. The user clicks into the title-styled textbox and types 'Design Tip #'.


Change the colour of an icon using the color-picker

Click on the icon you want to change the color of to select it; use the color-picker in the top toolbar to change the color. 

A user in the Editor clicks on a heart icon in a design canvas in the Venngage Editor. In the top toolbar, a color-picker tool becomes available (a small square with a teardrop icon in the center). The user clicks the color-picker to bring up a color-wheel and selects a color. The heart icon on the design canvas turns several different colors as the user clicks on the color wheel, before finally setting the color to white.


Replace the background image in your design or change the background color

You can also create a background overlay or gradient.

A user double-clicks on the background image of a design to bring up the Replace menu. From the Photos tab, they select an image of a city skyline at night to replace the original background image.

Share the design

Once you have completed your work, you can preview it, and share it online with a link or download your design with a paid subscription.

A user on a Free account clicks Share on the top toolbar in the Venngage editor.

Take it to the next level

You made and shared your first design! To upgrade your design skills, explore our Help Center or dive into our Blog for more in-depth design tips and tricks!
