Today I’m bringing you directly to the About page for the site we’ll be visiting, because the main page just dives right into their tool. To learn more about Canva scroll down the page. You’ll learn how you can use this simple new way to design all sorts of content like blog graphics, presentations, Facebook covers, flyers, posters, invitations, and more!
I love it because it’s free and easy to use with an intuitive drag and drop system. When you’re ready to give it a try, click the green Start Designing button. It will ask you to sign up, and you can do so using either F-connect with Facebook or by using your e-mail address and creating a password. I, of course, used Facebook as always.
Once you’ve signed up the site provides you with a 23 second guide to using Canva. Click the Show Me How It’s Done button to get started. Once you’ve watched the guide, you’ll be instructed to start your first challenge. This interactive challenge will reinforce how to use the different design components on the site. Once you’ve completed it you can begin your own design.
I’ve been using it to design banners, Facebook covers, and such for my knitwear designs brand that I’m getting off the ground this year. I love that it’s fast and easy to use, and that everything is clearly labeled as to whether it is free or not. (You can purchase stock photos and such to make your designs come to life!)
