Create layout concepts for anything from a poster to a newsletter with the Quark DesignPad app. After a design concept is created, it can be printed, shared to social media and through email, as well as further developed in QuarkXPress. Plus, the app offers grid-based, pre-defined layout types, as well as enables users to create their own.
FontBook is like a typography encyclopedia, providing more than 730,000 typeface samples. The app enables users to filter fonts in a variety of ways, including by class, foundry, designer, year or name. The app’s iPad version even allows users to compile lists of their favorite fonts, as well as compare typefaces.
Designers can leverage the ColoRotate app to create color palettes, as well as use the app to extract colors and blend hues. The app can be used alone or connected to Photoshop CS5, CS6 and CC. What’s particularly useful for designers is that there are many ways to share what they are working on with colleagues or clients.
