A good design goes through constant iterations and changes before the final product is realized. New ideas, feedback from team members, or last-minute errors contribute to significant changes throughout the design process. Previewing your project design makes it easier for you to decide whether or not to commit to a change. This also encourages safe exploration and playful creativity.

On Simplified, you can create stunning designs that will make an impression on your audience! In this guide, we will show you how you can preview your design easily within seconds.

  • Better understanding: What is the design’s purpose? How is it organized? Is the intended message is being communicated? This pushes active thinking, sparks imagination, and reveals greater insights to help you design easily.
  • Previews allow you to see exactly how your design will look when it is exported and posted on social media or taken for print!
