Get on the doodle train

Doodling on photos is no longer a way for 90s kids to express themselves in yearbooks.

Doodling on photos is no longer a way for 90s kids to express themselves in yearbooks. It’s now a powerful design trend, giving brands a playful edge in mainstream media.

It’s interesting, bold, and a fantastic way to turn plain photos into eye catching designs.

It can also be intimidating. But don’t let that stop you! We’ve got 3 simple ways to try it, and believe us, it’s easier than you think.

1. Highlight the main feature

Add sparkles, accents shapes, lines, flowers or leaves around the product or person in your photo.

2. Supercharge a plain background

Background feeling a little boring? Add some graphics to create an interesting wallpaper.

3. Replace real things with graphics

Find graphics that match specific objects in your photo, and have a little fun by placing them over the object.

Little word, big meaning.

What does it mean to you?
