One of the best AI generation tool available

Design posters, graphics, banners, and more in minutes. Simplified helps you design everything, scale your brand, and collaborate with your team like never before.


Brent Franklin

Simple Design Tools Packing a Punch

The image tools and design tools are awesome. The tools work flawlessly and make actions like removing a background simple. When I discovered the Ai integrations, I didn't realize where the industry was with things like image generation and that sparked a whole new rabbit hole to explore.


Aaron Springer

Great canva alternative !!

I have switched from canva to simplified as they have fresh designs and everyone uses the same Canva designs so this helps to differentiate us from the usual designs seen online.


Noor Nabi Shaikh

An amazing all-round tool for any kind of content creation

The Graphic design tools, the AI, always give helpful insights and the ability to animate the posts in just one 1-click, including the templates, which help to create a start.
