Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Creative Cloud Express (formerly Adobe Spark)

I use Adobe Creative Cloud Express for projects with middle school students. I think it's important for them to learn how to use graphic design tools, and Adobe Creative Cloud Express is a kid-friendly option with a lot of different design choices. I use it in my classroom, and all of my students sign up with free accounts.
  • Design
  • Template Options
  • User-Friendly
  • Editing is not always easy
  • Movement and size-changing does not work like Google
  • Final product has watermark without paid subscription

Do you think Adobe Express delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Adobe Express's feature set?


Did Adobe Express live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Adobe Express go as expected?


Would you buy Adobe Express again?


It's a really easy online design tool, so I would recommend it to anyone! I particularly like to use it in the classroom because I think it's a little easier than Canva--a tool that I would say is very similar. There are slightly fewer options, which can make it a little less overwhelming for kids.

Using Adobe Creative Cloud Express (formerly Adobe Spark)

While I think Adobe Creative Cloud Express and Canva are actually pretty similar, I find that kids tend to see Adobe Creative Cloud Express as a little more manageable and less overwhelming. Graphic design can be a little scary, and I think Adobe Creative Cloud Express does a good job at simplifying the process as much as they can.
