PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's much anticipated launch of BeFunky's new graphic design platform "Designer Toolkit," gives BeFunky regulars -- those making the 45 million monthly user visits -- even more reason to remain staunch fans.  BeFunky applied its experience in the photo editing space to enable users to create professional-caliber graphic designs with simple templates and drag and drop tools.  Notably, BeFunky's integrated dual platform enables Designer Toolkit users to apply advanced photo editing features directly into their graphic design.

Co-Founder and CEO of BeFunky, Tekin Tatar asserts, "In vetting our prospects for this platform, we identified a gap in the range of user interfaces in graphic design tools.  So we saw an opportunity to build a graphic design experience that would instantly appeal to our current users, while also being intuitively simple for those new to BeFunky."   Adds Tekin, "We are passionate about giving users the space to create their own dazzling graphic designs for a popular range of social and commercial activities.  For small business owners, hobbyists, schools, and clubs, our templates provide the ability to go from 'Idea to finished product' in five minutes."

The firm's trusted interface will make the Designer Toolkit feel very familiar to current BeFunky users.  Specifically, this first iteration of the Designer Toolkit will offer:  1) Cross-platform integration with BeFunky's Photo Editor, enabling users to easily jump back and forth between the Designer Toolkit and Photo Editor as needed;  2) A range of templates for event graphics, blog tools, social media headers, and social media graphics;  3) Drag and drop functionality to add images, graphics, and text to these templates;  4) Free access to a massive photo library of 420,000 stock images from Pixabay, affording users an abundant array of imagery: people, objects, landscapes, etcetera, without a separate copyright fee;  5) Seamless, crash resistant stability.

Tekin concludes, "We are very excited about the launch of the Designer Toolkit.  We successfully applied BeFunky's tried and true methods to design a fast, fun and intriguing user interaction experience that promotes powerful communication.  Our new Designer Toolkit harnesses our proprietary tools in a fun, creative way that enables anyone the freedom to create images and graphic designs for a wide range of needs."
