What are Smartblocks?

Smartblocks are predesigned, themed sets that will help you fill out your creations easily. How? By providing you with everything ready made; all you have to do is edit, adjust dimensions and you’re all set.

Looking for resources in other templates? Smartblocks will allow you to easily select from their sets by category without leaving the Editor. Halfway between templates and conventional resources, these sets offer the advantages of both and make assembly of a genially easier and more accessible for those who don’t have advanced knowledge in design or who are short on time.

Want to know which Smartblocks best fit your needs?

What kinds of Smartblocks can I use?

Smartblocks are versatile resources, and we’re offering you a huge variety in this category so that you always have the perfect Smartblock available for your creation:

♦ Library / Images

Who wouldn’t like to put together a collage in a matter of seconds? With Smartblocks, now it’s possible. Forget about assembly and focus on choosing your best photos. All you have to do is replace the images. Simple, right?

♦ Full Size

Full size Smartblocks owe their name to their compatibility with larger creations like vertical infographics. Want to guess why? The answer is simple. These sets easily and comfortably fit (and substitute) into an infographic scale and format. Choose a block, adjust it to your canvas and you’re done assembling. With Smartblocks, you’ll have an infographic put together in seconds.

♦ Box

Box sets are simple and versatile sets you can include as complementary elements or as the foundation for a full page to add a special something to your geniallys. They include a variety of elements like text, images and pins; you’ll recognize many of them because they’re pages from other templates. You don’t need to leave your creation to search for other geniallys. Just choose the style you like most, adjust its dimensions and you’re ready to go. Stunning results in just a few minutes!

♦ Profiles

Would you like to be able to choose a collage with profiles of your whole team with one quick click? Want to strengthen your personal branding? If you do, these Smartblocks are for you. Enter your information and select the design that best fits your profile. Quick, simple and above all, professional.

♦ Lists / Processes

Smartblocks of lists and processes are sure to be among your favorites, especially for those of you who interact with the world of web design. With these, you’ll be able to assemble lists and processes in a way that is detailed and precise. You’ll be able to edit each element, including interactivity and multimedia elements so that everything is explained perfectly.

♦ Maps

Thanks to Smartblocks, now you can select and include maps without leaving the Editor. You have a huge variety available to you: those you were already using and many more. You’ll have your map, complete with interactivity, animation and pins of all types and colors. Customize it, add your information and you’ll have a map that fits your creation in a flash.

♦ Timeline 

Why adjust lines, icons and dimensions if you can save time dragging in a single element and adjusting it all at once? Timeline Smartblocks allow you to include timelines with Genial.ly styling in a second. Choose the one that best fits the process you want to illustrate, adjust the size of everything at once and add your information. It’s that easy to combine and experiment. Your time is in your hands.

♦ Diagrams

We know that creating diagrams and graphics from scratch can be a bit tedious. That’s why with Smartblocks, we offer you all the diagrams we know you use most so that you can add them more easily and comfortably. You have tons of options, percentages, one, two, three, or four variables, different colors, shapes and styles. Explain your information efficiently without getting lost in the assembly process. That’s what we’re here for.

♦ Data / Tables / Graphs

Tables with Genial.ly? Yes! Tables and graphs to show off your data. Many are animated, and all are sure to stun. Just add your numbers and info and adjust the dimensiones. Data is easier for audiences to absorb when it is supported by visuals. The possibilities are endless: simple, complex, full-page or as an add-in. Like all of our Smartblocks, they adapt to your needs.

♦ Animated

Finally, you’ll have a series of sets especially chosen as vehicles for multimedia elements like gifs or videos. Replace the content and forget about adjusting it or worrying about its style. Everything is ready for you to simply change the link out for your favorite YouTube video, silly Gif or useful tutorial.
