Apr 23, 2020

Canva is a graphic design tool and can be used for free.

On Canva you can design anything with its easy, user friendly drag and drop tool, loads of editable templates and designs.

With Canva you can design and create anything from social media posts to invitations. Canva also has loads of stock images, icons, illustrations and fonts for you to use. 

So what can you do on Canva?

Well, firstly you can create many different types of content. All the templates are ready sized to the right dimension, so for example the Pinterest Pin template is the exact size you need to upload straight into Pinterest. 

Branding

With Canva it easily lets you upload your own images to use on your documents.  You can also add a brand kit so all your colour palettes and fonts you use for your brand can easily be added making your content professional and flawless. 

Templates

Just to give you an example you can create a Pinterest Pin, Facebook post, Instagram Story, Instagram Post, Presentation, Booklet, Poster, Logo, Blog graphic, email header, brochure, logo. There is so much you can create. 

Format

You can download your content/document in different file formats so it's then easily uploaded to a website, social media or even into Powerpoint for a presentation. 

Effects

With Canva you can make your content really stand out by adding in some of the effects on images.  Effects include background remover, pixelate, slice, duotone etc.

How to use in a business?

Canva makes it effortless by allowing you to share documents, share with a team so all templates and content can be seen by a group of people and set up folders so you can easily organise your documents.
