We did it again - if you haven't checked out our app StoriesEdit recently, you totally should because we just dropped a brand new template set. We've previously discussed how much of an asset template sets can be to anyone creating content on a consistent basis, utilizing template sets ensures that you save time and that your Instagram Stories look cohesive. Today we're showcasing our brand new Slate template set, covering details about the set, as well as discussing who it's for.
The Slate Set is made of cool grey tones and consists of brush stroke details that truly make the designs stand out. While the color of the brush strokes cannot be changed since they're not a shape or background - you can change the background color of all of the templates and the border color of templates 3, 7, and 9 can be utilized to fit your brand's aesthetic. It's important also to mention that there are some delicately lined details like outlined boxes, and lines which are all black and not able to be edited.
This template set was created for anyone who finds themselves frequently sharing recent blog posts, quotes of the days, or anyone who's looking for new ways to showcase their photographs on their Instagram Stories. While we did have influencers in mind when designing this template set, it can work for just about anyone.
