How to design a quote graphic with Over App

Have you ever wondered, how to design a quote graphic for your social media platforms?

Today, I am going to show you step by step, what you have to do to create and design a quote graphic using the Over App.

Not familiar with Over App ? don’t panic!

You can download the App on your phone for free, and use the free features to create your quote.

Without a subscription, you will be limited because you won’t have access to every graphics or fonts, but you will have enough resources to be able to create a quote graphic.

Without further due, let’s get started.


The first step to design a quote, is to find the perfect background.

It can be a picture from your phone, an image, or just a background color.

What I like to do is going on Pinterest and search for “Wallpaper” or “Background”.

But if I know exactly what I want to create, I would be more precise on my search, like: “Blue butterfly wallpaper” or “background jungle pattern”.

Sometimes, it’s hard to think of what you want to create.

If you need inspiration and want to browse backgrounds before making your decision, you can go to my Pinterest Profile.

I created a board called “Wallpaper for content creation” where I pin a different kind of wallpapers (Image, Colorful, Pattern, Illustrations, etc.)

You found your background? Great! 

Now download the image on your phone. 


If you already know the quote you want to add to your design, you can skip this part.

You can create your QUOTE! Meaning writing whatever is on your mind.

But you can use a quote from a movie, a tv show or search for an inspirational and motivational quote on Pinterest.

(I also have a board on my Pinterest Profile called “QUOTES” if you want to check it out)

I love short quotes because it’s easier to make a cute design.

Go on Pinterest or Google search if you like it better, and get a meaningful quote to add to your background.


Add your background and choose your Fonts.

Now, we are getting into the fun part!

After you downloaded your wallpaper/background, it’s time to open the Over App.

Once the App is open, tap on the + button and choose transparent.

From there you will be able to choose the size of your quote graphic. I always choose Instagram Story size which is 1080×1920.

Then, you need to transfer your background from the image section, bottom left.

Your image will look small; you will need to zoom in until you can’t see the transparent background. Center your image how you like it and DONE.

From there, you need to add your quotes, so let’s tap on “text” beside the image section and start writing your quote.

Then you will be able to choose whatever Font you like!

If you go to the left in the “text section”, you will see an arrow, click on it! It will bring you to the Over App library Font!

Custom your design by adding Graphics

After adding your background and your text, you can choose to keep it that way and save your work, or you can add some graphics to make it more your own.

To do so, you will have to go to the graphic section and search for graphics that can match your background or your quote.

For example, if your quote is about nature, you can search for birds, flowers or clouds, etc.

You can add as many graphics as you want!

You can decide to put them on one part of your text or between letters. Everything is possible.


Once you are satisfied with your design, save your work in PNG or JPG. It’s up to you!

Then, it’s time to share it with the world!

Add your perfect and unique creation to your Instagram story or make an Instagram post.

You can also add your quotes to one of your boards on Pinterest and call it a day!

You DID IT! That was how you create and design a quote graphic with Over App.
