Creating Simple Designs with Canva

by | Sep 1, 2015 | Zoda Design Blog

I recently heard about a new, simple to use design tool called Canva. If you don’t have the time, patience, or money to learn how to use the Adobe products, Canva is a great alternative.

There are a few things that really sold me on Canva. For one thing, the drag-and-drop interface makes images not only easier to create, but less time consuming than creating them in Illustrator or Photoshop. While it may not have all the options that the Adobe software has, it still works just fine since I don’t tend to really need them when putting together simple web images.

Another thing that really sold me on Canva was the plethora of graphics already created and ready for you to use in your design. You can use them straight out-of-the-box, but they are also *great* for inspiring something new and different. I typically look through some gorgeous designs that are already done to get ideas on how to change them to match my branding and style.

My number one favorite thing about Canva, though, has to be the pricing. A lot of the images, icons, and shapes are free, and those that aren’t cost only $1. You can make pretty much any size graphic you wish at no extra cost, and you can export the files in pretty much any format as well. If you feel like getting creative, give Canva a try and let me know how it goes!
