The user interface:
It is relatively easy to follow, the interface guides you through the steps until the tool where you create Wordart.
The first time it was a bit unclear how the exel sheet worked and you don't see a visual output immediately.
But after clicking some buttons a button 'visualize' appeared and in this way you can constantly check what changes you made to the wordcloud.

Testing the tool (learning by doing – trial and error)
What would/could a designer use this tool for?
A designer should not use this tool because there is a lack of creativity, you can't choose shapes yourself and the tool basically creates everything for you so every outcome is very similar to another one's. You can prototype fast though, because with one click you can order mugs or tshirts with your 'design'.
Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?
The tool is free when you hit 'create' and create your own wordcloud. But the next steps to save, print or do anything with it is not free.
When you want to use this tool fully you have to pay.
