Wait list
All the work starts with registration. And... Unfortunately, for now, you will go on the waitlist. But today, I received an email, "The wait is over! You're in!". So I can join Microsoft Designer and start testing new features

Let's start

To create the new design, you can type a description of the invention you'd like to make. For example, I want to open my cafe/coworking, where cool people can work and drink coffee together.

Designer starts preparing some options for me on the right sight.

Add images or Generate form AI

  • Add from Phone
You don't need to download an application to your phone. All you need: scan QR code using your phone camera and upload files through browser
  • Add from Device
No drag&drop, but still easy. Choose necessary images from your device
  • Add from your media
All images you uploaded or generated before will be there. So, you can reuse them

I created an invitation to my webinar about Power BI in 4 minutes, using 3 added images: one generated by AI and two downloaded from my phone
Please, no logo there
In May, we are preparing Imagine Cup Junior in Sofia, Bulgaria, to train local teams for that great IT competition for kids. I've added the central theme of the Imagine Cup and the logo of Awara IT Academy, which is the event organizer. But, unfortunately, I can't add any info that "don't use the logo as a background." So, it is not as cool as it could be

Generate image

If I don't have images, I go to Google, Bing, etc. Now I can just put on generate image and use AI in a Microsoft Designer. All you need it's just to make a description of what you want

Customize chosen designs or create a new design from scratch

When you choose a design you can click Customize design and being redirected to the editor page. Also, you can go there if you skip and start from a blank canvas.

Overall features

Templates and AI
When I am at the start of creating something, I like to use templates as a reference.

Therefore, designer suggests some templated for upcoming events.

Also, I can ask AI to share ideas on the theme "traveling" or "opening office".

Finally, I can enrich this design with generated AI images.
