I use PowerPoint for most of my graphics, including the ones I use for videos, event flyers, postcards, my Linkedin profile header, and more. If you can see it, you can create it in PowerPoint. (A link to samples is below the video.)
In this example, it’s easy to add design elements to words using PowerPoint and WordArt.
Here’s a real quick video to show you how I did this. I’m using PowerPoint 2013, and this has worked the same in other versions.
P.S. In another video, I show you how to save your WordArt graphic as a picture while on the slide, crop it, then save outside of PowerPoint so you can use it anywhere. Click here to watch that video after you’ve learned from this one.
