As a graphic designer I sometimes forget other business people mightn’t know all of the tricks of the trade when it comes to how to use branding tools and programs. Because I use creative programs daily, things like designing instagram posts, Pinterest graphics or other promotional material for my business has become second nature, but I know it’s not like this for everyone.
These days, you don’t need a design degree to be able to create amazing promotional material for your business, in fact, you don’t even need to pay for any design tools or programs to create ANY graphics for your business. Sound cool? Of course it does!
Enter Canva – a free online design program, created by designers, that makes designing anything from promotional flyers, brochures and cards to social media posts, infographics and resumes an absolute cinch, even for design rookies.
But you’re a designer, why do you need Canva?
Despite having access to professional design programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Indesign I’m a big fan of Canva and I use the free online tool in my business at least a couple of times a week. Canva is simple, quick and accessible from any desktop PC or Mac (and now iPhone) as long as a I have a wifi connection which means I can whip something up on the go quickly and effectively.
I love sharing my knowledge about this awesome tool with others who might not have heard how simple and effective it is for creating in-house business branding material that doesn’t look like a Kindergarten teacher has whipped it up in Microsoft Publisher!
Okay I’m interested, tell me more!
