Technology continues to make our lives in very many ways much easier. Designing imagery and graphics used to be a specific skill held by only a handful of people – but not anymore!
Have you heard of Canva? Canva is free online tool for creating basic social media graphics, reports and videos. The wide range of templates and free pictures available on Canva make it a great tool for any small business looking to make a big impact on social media!
Canva comes with a number of pre-formatted templates to choose from, all sized accordingly to suit mainstream social media channels. There are options to edit pictures and colours, resize shapes and patterns and a huge variety of fonts to choose from. In addition, you can use Canva to produce reports and other professional documents all to your brand guidelines.
Projects can be downloaded in a variety of file types and the platform also offers a mobile version, just in case you’re looking to create something whilst out and about!
We must stress of course that Canva is no substitute for an experiences and fully trained Graphic Designer – if you’re thinking of using Canva to design your next company brochure or website, forget it and stick to the professionals! But for quick and easy digital design, Canva is the place to be!
