In 2014 we had some what of a golden age of design. Mobile apps made becoming a designer or expressing yourself creatively much more accessible then in the past when you had to essentially buy programs that were literally hundreds of dollars. Now there are apps that allow complex levels of design essentially for free or at most a few bucks. One such app is Photo Candy which allows users to add patterns & shapes to their photos to create digital art masterpieces that once were only created by professionals. It’s free (always a plus) and every creative should have it on their phone when they want to design on the go. You will also want to follow Photo Candy on Instagram (@photocandyapp) as they have a new design season every 16 weeks. Winners of each week (decided by most likes) will be placed into a playoff bracket to crown a new photo candy champion for that season. The winner of each season receives a brand new ipad (to aid in the mobile design process) & gets featured inside of the photo candy app.
Here’s a look at some of the best Photo Candy edits we have seen this year.
