Crafting Glorify Templates – 30 Days Challenge

Day #1

Recently, I’ve been playing with the idea of crafting one design each day for 30 days and immediately turning it into a usable template people can download and do whatever they want with it.

Let’s say you’re starting a new online business and finding it difficult to come up with graphics, logos, content ideas…

…branding is as foreign to you as cave exploring… and you’re seeking inspiration to kickstart your projects and get going…

…and while you’ve been poking around, you stumble upon a killer design that you really like, fits your imagination, and you know your customers will respond well to it… and want to use this design style immediately.

Well, you’ll be able to download it into your Glorify and customize it however you like.

Without worrying about the layout, color palettes, which fonts to use, and other essential graphic design geeky things that might not matter to you but without them, the branding, the design looks less than stellar.

And so… I’m kicking this off with a design below. And each day for 30 days straight, I’ll upload one design to my website, designwithglorify.com, where you’ll be able to download them.

The format will be as follows:

Glorify design template…

A brief description…

And a link to download it.

And yes, all my Glorify templates will be free.

Let’s start with this one.

Promised Glorify Template Ready For Download…

About two weeks ago, I found this quote that I really liked:

“CHANGE WHO YOU ARE ON THE INSIDE TO CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT ON THE OUTSIDE.”

I liked it so much that I decided to do something with it.

So, I opened my trusty old swipe file with all the magazine ads I’m talking about, like a broken radio that you should start building for yourself…

…and while I was scrolling through those magazine ads, I stumbled upon an idea that developed into this quote-style design.

And then, I liked it even more and decided to expand on it by trying different color palette variations and now I’m giving it away as a template.

The fonts you’ll need to upload into your Brand Kit for it to work are called:

  • Heading Now
  • Matter

If you don’t want to pay for the Matter font, just use another one like Work Sands or Montserrat.

Anyways…

Download this template right now before the edges burn; Watch out though, it’s hot and high in demand…

Download it here for free:

https://app.glorify.com/file/1115496

By the way, just to be clear… the link is also my affiliate link, meaning I’ll get a commission if you decide to join Glorify using the link above.

If you already have Glorify, you have nothing to worry about. Just click the link above and download the template.

Make something good out of it…

Let’s go!

The Font That Packs a Punch!

Rolling into Monday with one of my favorite fonts called…

ASPEKTA.

I’ve used this font in dozens of projects, and every time I do, it delivers a punch.

Crafted by Ivo Dolenc, it’s a minimal and clean font that can be used in advertising, flyers, business cards, and just about anywhere for a neutral, clean, and simple look.

Try it…

I think you’re gonna love it.

It comes with 20 different weights you can play with.

Make your designs STAND OUT!

Here is where you can grab it…

https://befonts.com/aspekta-font-family.html

Now… What follows are a few of my designs using Aspekta. Hope you like them. If you have any questions, hit me up.

You Don’t Need Photoshop!

How long will it take me to learn Photoshop?

Well, take a seat, dear friend, because you’re in for quite the journey.

I won’t sugarcoat it—diving into Photoshop, messing with displacement maps, and mastering all those tools (the Pen Tool being the trickiest) or even the simpler tasks like selecting and removing backgrounds from images… it felt like having my wisdom teeth pulled out.

Not the most seksiest thing to play with.

But as with anything worth learning, it’s tough at first before it becomes easier.

Fortunately, you’re in luck.

Nowadays, you don’t have to spend weeks, months, or years trying to master Photoshop to create stunning, high-converting images for your social media, websites, or landing pages.

No, there are much simpler, less complex, and faster solutions out there.

Take Glorify, for example.

This tool emerged seemingly out of nowhere, delivering a powerful punch like a heavyweight champion, and quickly becoming my favorite design tool.

It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with it, and now, I use it 98% of the time. It’s straightforward, it’s fast, and it comes with pre-designed templates that are stunning.

So, even if you’re not a seasoned designer, you can effortlessly create beautiful, eye-catching images with just a few clicks.

As for me, I prefer designing everything from scratch, as you can see in the examples below.

You won’t find such designs in the template library.

This is fantastic news because if you choose any of my templates, you’re guaranteed unique, one-of-a-kind designs that you can easily customize and make your own.

Let me explain what I’m going to do.

Soon, I’m going to send an email to my subscribers with about 70% of my new Glorify templates and give them away for FREE.

This promotion will last for 3 consecutive days. There will be a timer, and when it hits zero, the templates will vanish from the internet, much like a dark cloud after a heavy storm.

You won’t find them anywhere else!

I’m orchestrating it this way because I want dedicated individuals to use them, and I don’t want them to become overused.

So, if you’re not on my list, you’re going to miss out.

But if you’re interested and want to become a subscriber, here’s where to go:

All you have to do is click the link above and sign up. I’ll then notify you when they’re ready.

5 Color Pallets I Use Instead Of Pure Black

I don’t know about you, but pure black is a color I like to stay away from, for one simple reason… If it’s against white, it tends to strain my eyes.

Don’t get me wrong, I can think of examples where pure black is awesome and looks amazing, but as I’m saying, I’ve found a few other colors that I prefer.

It’s a matter of personal choice.

Nothing more.

And so, here are the color palettes I use in Glorify, and I highly suggest adding them into your brand kit.

Starting with…

Demonic

Shadow

Bunker

Cave

Your welcome.

I found they work great in gaming, stargazing, motivation, coding, web design, encryption, hackers, data protection, photography and few dozens of other niches…

Here is something you gonna love!

Glorify - connect the dots 01

There is one thing that shines above the others in Glorify… 

It used to be called “Branding”

Now it’s located in Glorify’s library under “Brand Kit” 

And what it does will blown your mind. 

It’s one of those features that you gonna fall in love with the second you start using it because with a few clicks you can turn boring, ugly designs into eye-catching, mouth-salivating, heart-melting beauties and increase the change of catching the eyes of those interested. 

…and most likely, if you’re selling something, sell it by a ton!

And that’s no exageration. 

Look, sometimes I’m out of steam and can’t think of anything interesting, not to mention beautiful… and so I’ve got few shapes on my canvas, text and some random image of a product I don’t know what to do with…

And then I start playing with this “Branding” feature in Glorify and click through few on my personal color pallets and almost instantly I get beautiful designs I know will work. 

This feature is like a secret weapon. It can change the entire feel of the design, and if nothing else, spark your imagination. 

Give it a shot and I promise you, you’ll be glad you did. 

And if you’re looking to get Glorify but not sure… this may be another reason to give it a try. 

Get 14 Day trial.

https://liborbednarik.com/glorify

Not sure for how long the 14 Days trial will be up because there are still working on trying to figure it out best pricing options… but for now, Glorify has 14 Day trial.

Here are a few examples of what the “branding” feature can do with one click.

Sizzling Hot “quote style content” In Glorify

Recently, I stumbled upon an interesting quote that caught my eye…

“Change who you are on the inside to create the life you want on the outside.”

Feeling the vibe of it, a few ideas struck me like a lightning bolt.

Here is what my little brain came up with…

Kinda like the color pallet too.

Soon will be added here for download…

4 Of My Favorite Fonts This Month

Since Glorify introduced custom fonts, I jumped on it like ants on a Snickers bar, creating a small library of fonts I’ve used in just about every design I’ve ever made.

From social media posts to website banners and everything in between.

So it felt a bit disappointing at first to learn that Glorify won’t support custom fonts when sharing glorify templates. Meaning that if I want to share my Glorify templates with you, I either have to tell you the name of the font and you go and download it and then upload it to your Glorify brand kit, or I only use Google fonts…

I guess it’s not the end of the world…

But why?

Why not do something like what Canva did?

There are so many beautiful fonts out there… Hundreds if not thousands of them… and some of them don’t even come close to Google fonts, and yes, they’re free to download, and yes, you can use them for commercial purposes…

And it doesn’t matter if you’re designing ads, flyers, posters, banners, and so on, they simply look amazing with any project.

But anyway… such is life.

I’m using them anyway…

Here are four of my favorite fonts I’m playing with right now…

  • Aspekta family
  • Heading Now
  • Chunk Five Print
  • Satoshi family

These fonts are on top of my list and work great with so many designs. Download them and upload them to your Glorify brand kit.

By the way, speaking of Glorify templates, I’m building my own library at glorifytemplates.com

Right now, there is not much but this about to change as I’m adding new templates.

If you’re interested in getting high-quality, niche-specific, and then later, product-specific templates for your social media, websites, sales funnels, marketing, etc., you’ll find it there.

Now with this off my chest, I wanted to share with you my new design that got inspired by an adult show I watched with my girlfriend not too long ago…

If you’re selling anything seksy, adult-related, this color palette, graphics, and the vibe of the design could help you bring more eye-balls to your store, and help you sell more of your products.

The fonts used in this project I’ll reveal next time.

Here, I share my Glorify template library again in case you’ve missed it… glorifytemplates.com

How To Create Fake 3D Effect In Glorify

Fake 3D in Glorify

As of now, there is no 3D button you could click on to instantly turn 2D images into 3D.

However, there is a simple technique I’ve been using for a while that creates images almost as realistic as genuine 3D. It works with text, images, objects and more.

But before I share with you how I’ve achieved this simple effect, know that it’s not a real thing.

If you want real 3D, use tools like Cinema 4D, Lightwave, Blender, and whatever other 3D apps you can get your hands on your iPad and then bring it to Glorify.

Anyway…

Here is what I’ve done:

  1. Started a new project in Glorify (1920×1080) and named it Fake 3D.
  2. Dropped an image I found on Pixabay onto my canvas.
  3. Got rid of the background.
  4. Then duplicated the layer with the image and scaled it up until it was large enough, covering just part of the canvas.
  5. Placed text in between those layers and used a blur effect to blur the scaled image until it created an effect similar to what photographers call depth of field.
  6. Then I used another effect called noise and added a bit of noise for further enhancement.

And that’s it…

If you want me to make a video about it, let me know…

I also wrote aobut it in more detail here…

https://glorifytemplates.com/blog/b/fake-3d-effect-in-glorify

I’ll see if I can squeeze in a minute or two for a simple video, walking you through it step by step.

You’re welcome…

Helping Health & Welness Coach Realize Her Dream

Yesterday, a colleague of mine spilled her guts about her dream of becoming a health and wellness coach.

But here’s the thing…

She’s got the vision, the passion, but zilch when it comes to piecing it together.

Listening to her for few minutes I realized suggesting Leadpages would be like handing a caveman a smartphone.

So, I stepped up.

Fired up by her ambition, I threw together a killer landing page using Glorify. Shot her a quick message and bam, she was over the moon.

Now, it’s crunch time.

Heading to Leadpages to seal the deal.

Let’s hope the final landing page is gonna give smile on her face.

I think with such a mountain of chaos on her plate, any help is blessing.

Let’s go!

What’s the meaning of a good life?

…is not wake up with an alarm clock.”

Not sure where I heard it but I absolutely love it. It reminds me of old days (2008) when me and my mate took off to New Zealand and the only thing on our minds was to enjoy the road ahead. 

No phone… 

No internet…

The freedom lasted for about a year…

And I could trade everything I posses to ever experience it again. 

Either way… 

Love the freedom of not waking up to an alarm!

Turned it into a story post in Glorify… 

If you want the project, I’ll leave the link below. 

Feel free to expand on the design… 

Do whatever you want with it…

Invest In Yourself (Don’t Make The Same Mistake!)

The greatest advice I’ve ever received was…

“Invest in yourself.”

I can’t tell you how much time I have wasted trying to learn things myself versus buying a course with a clear path, served on a silver platter.

I could have been miles ahead, waving at myself in the rearview mirror.

I could have saved at least 2 years of my life.

And so, always, no matter what you’re trying to learn, learn it from someone who’s exactly where you want to be.

Let me give you a quick example.

So, in 2011, when I was in New Zealand, I searched for graphic design courses and found a few I couldn’t afford.

And even if I could, I didn’t want to spend 1000+ on a course…

Huge mistake!

And here is why…

Instead of going through it, getting a certification, and opening up a ton of new opportunities to secure a new job or new clients or whatever…

I decided to learn things myself.

Six months later, I was more confused, with no direction, lost, with no clients, no new job…

Nothing!

Frustrated as hell.

When I finally pulled my head out of the sand and bought the course, I couldn’t believe how fast I progressed.

I secured a new client 4 weeks after the purchase.

I learned how to use Photoshop, something I wouldn’t have been able to do even if I had tried.

Not in 2011 when tutorials on Youtube were only few and hard to find.

And so…

Whatever you’re trying to learn, learn it from someone who has laid a clear path in front of you… Someone who’s exactly where you want to be.

Books, workshops, courses, whatever they offer, get it all!

Don’t jump from one expert to another.

Learn from one… and one only until you get where you want to be.

It’s the fastest way to progress in life.

Now I don’t use Photoshop anymore.

I ditched it back in 2020.

I replaced it with Glorify.

And now I’m crafting beautiful images, ads, and social media content.

And I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ll take you through my recent project soon.

Anyway…

Keep in mind what I said in this short post and see for yourself what you’re going to do with this information.
