Adobe Spark Overview

What is Adobe Spark?

Adobe Spark is a cloud-based design platform which allows users to create custom graphics, web pages, and videos on their computer or mobile device. Spark Page and Spark Video offer iPhone and iPad apps, while Spark Post has native apps for both Android and iOS. Automatic sync of projects across the web and mobile apps allows users to work from anywhere, at any time.

With Spark Post, users can create custom content from a range of templates or from scratch, with the ability to customize logos, colors, fonts, and images to reflect their cause, business, or personal brand. Designs are automatically resized for different channels, allowing users to create blog banners, Instagram posts or stories, YouTube thumbnails, Facebook Ads, and more, without needing to manually resize images.

Spark Page provides users with a range of different website layouts to customize with their own content. Thousands of free stock photos can be utilized, in addition to users’ own photos uploaded from their device or imported from cloud storage accounts. Users can also create web stories using Spark Page’s magazine-style themes, which automatically adapt to display on different devices.

Spark Video allows users to create custom videos by combining icons, photos, and video clips, with the ability to add text overlays to their creations. Various visual themes are included with different transitions and motion designed to enhance the story, mood, and message of the video. Soundtracks can also be added, either from a variety of free soundtracks or uploaded audio files, with the ability to adjust audio volume as necessary.

Adobe Spark vs. Canva

I started using Adobe Spark as an alternative to Canva. But I found the whole experience not as user friendly as what I can create with Canva. My team ended up going back to using Canva for simple graphics.

Spark creativity with your students

Adobe Spark has provided me with a useful tool to enhance distance learning. Adobe Spark can be used on all devices which is important since some students have limited access to technology.

Finally... a design tool for non-designers!

As a project manager/account director at my company, I like to keep things moving and complete tasks quickly & efficiently. Adobe Spark allows me to create sharp designs for emails as well as banner ads and leave the 'heavier' lifting to our designers. We couldn't live without this tool.

I love how Spark makes creating lots of quality content more manageable.

Pros

Excellent Template selection. I love the branding feature that makes customizing content a breeze!
Within the iOS app, there are lots of options to allow you to shuffle through various formats till you find the right "feel" (in the app, select the text, go to "style" and play with the style wheel).
The integration with Creative Cloud is also so helpful for achieving brand consistency.

Cons

I wish that you could make multiple posts within one file (similar to Artboards in Illustrator) rather than having to duplicate the file and edit it accordingly. It would be much more convenient for multiple image insta-posts, OR when you are making the same type of post across multiple platforms. Sometimes I won't realize I want to change a style until I am on the second format of that graphic (for example I make an insta post and duplicate it to make a FB version and then while on the FB version I realize a particular design looks better). So it's annoying to have to go back to the first file to do that. I'd love to be able to do that on just one screen. Also, the align feature is currently only accessible if you select more than one object and only works to align relative to each other. It would be great to be able to align relative to art board and access this feature with just one object.

My overall experience is a 10/10 because it's just wonderful.

Pros

Spark is one of those platforms for creators like myself because it brings spark in my designs.

I love everything that I'm speechless to even say much...

Cons

There's not much criticism the only problem is that on the mobile app there could be some more developments because it's slow.

I use both the PC and Mobile because I am always designing so the Mobile is being creative on the go. If it could be more fast then I'd be more happier.

I started using Adobe Spark as an alternative to Canva. But I found the whole experience not as user friendly as what I can create with Canva. My team ended up going back to using Canva for simple graphics.

Pros

As a Social Media Director I often need to create quick graphics myself rather than bog down a graphic designer with a simple task. I found Adobe Spark, and it's great for just that, simple graphics. You can choose from a large assortment of stock images because they are attached to Adobe Stock, as well as other free stock images on the web.

Cons

I felt it was too hard to make the graphic the exact way I wanted it too. You could change the font only by using a sliding scale, in order to make changes to the text you had to click on the word box and it opens in a new screen. Additionally, the variety and of "shapes" they offer is not as vast as Canva's selection.

Pros

Lots of templates to help students create infographics, web pages and video. Simple dashboard with step by step instructions as to how to create your deliverable. Simple to share and export.

Cons

There is a free version, but not a free trial of the premium version. I was fortunate that my organization purchased the premium version, but when I recommend to colleagues, they were interested in doing a free trial prior to putting in a purchase request.

Pros

Adobe Spark puts the power of Adobe's famous design tools in the hands of non-designers and marketing managers to handle the quick and easy creative tasks for various channels.

Cons

Adobe Spark is a fantastic tool for non-designers and market/channel managers. My only complaint is that I wish there were newer templates to choose from.
