Our Honest Review
We Tried Kimp.io, here is the result
We tried the graphic design service during the 7 days trial, here is the result. Please note that logo creation is not possible during the trial offer.
After your registration and payment of the subscription, you will receive in less than an hour, access to your Trello board which contains several explanations on the different processes. Take the time to read everything before making your first request.
Then, everything happens on your Trello. The project manager replies to your tasks and keep you in touch or ask you for more details.
Example of 2 requests
We will talk about 2 requests I made :
- Youtube Thumbnail
- Google Slide template
It took them more than 24 hours to complete the image below:
Here’s what I asked them to do:
As you can see, my request is not at all precise. Nevertheless, they had access to the YouTube channel, about the videos and the logo. The result was fine with me, however, it’s impossible to insert text because the funnel image takes all the space.
I wanted to see how the process would go and how long it would take if I asked them to make a revision. So I asked them to change the Dollar and Bitcoin symbol on the coins to just the € symbol. Unfortunately, I had asked for this at 5 pm and it was returned to me the next day at 10:30 am.
So it took about 2 days to get the result I wanted with surely 30min of my time invested to give them the instructions and check their work.
Made by ourselves in less than 10 minutes :
As you can see, I used the same funnel image as them (I couldn’t find the same background). Indeed, this image is available on image bank sites such as Shutterstock or Adobe Stock. In fact, I asked them where the image came from and they confirmed that they had downloaded it from Shutterstock.
To do this, I needed Adobe Illustrator + Adobe Stock to download the background and the funnel.
It actually took me 10 minutes even with the change of the currency symbols!
So if you have access to an image bank and master software like Adobe Illustrator, it’s better than you do it yourself.
Nevertheless, you will notice the violent effect they inserted at the funnel level, it adds a certain creativity, something I hadn’t thought of.
Google Slide Template
If you are curious about Systeme.io, we made a review: Systeme.io review
Let’s talk about the Google Slide template. I just asked them to create a template with a beautiful background with my logo. To help them, I sent them the beginning of my slide with some content inside but I asked them to don’t add any text or pictures, I just wanted the background, something beautiful and this is currently the case.
So after almost 2 days to get the templates done, I asked them to remove the text. After one day again, here is the result :
As I know how to use adobe illustrator, I could edit the template to remove the text myself but if you don’t know or don’t want to use illustrator, then you would lose one day again to get the text completely removed…
But in the end, as you can see, Kimp can format your Google Slide presentations if you send them all the content!
