So, let’s start with the tools I am using to run my Graphic Design Business.

Desktop & more

As of right now, I am using a Laptop!

So, I have the Macbook Pro 13inch from 2019.

This is my main tool! I do absolutely everything on it, like video editing, photo editing, logo design, etc.

Now, I told you I was upgrading some of my tools. I am getting the Mac Mini (desktop).

So, I will keep my Macbook Pro for when I need to work on the go!

With the Mac Mini, I’ve got a brand new LG 4k Display that I cannot wait to use!

iPad & more

I have quite a lot of little tools I am using every day as a Graphic Designer.

One of them is a really cool gaming mouse that I literally stole from my husband.

I loved it so much that he had to buy a new one for himself 😂

So, the mouse is a Logitech G Pro wireless

With this mouse, I also got a really cool keyboard from the Brand Jelly comb!

I love it because I can add multiple devices and switch between my computer to my iPad.

Here is the Keyboard: Jelly Comb Bluetooth Keyboard

Last but not least of my tool is my iPad Pro 11inch 2020 and my Apple Pencil 2nd generation.

Alright, I use multiple software as a Graphic Designer.

A lot of them are included in my Adobe creative cloud subscription. 

  • Adobe Illustrator: Logo Design
  • Adobe Photoshop: Photo editing, social media posts.
  • Adobe Premiere Pro: Video editing
