In the 2.0 world visual elements stand out, and publications that include beautiful combinations of text and images are much more attractive and engaging.
Today I want to share a fantastic online design tool that will make your designs pop! This will allow you to do much more with them. Finally, you will have the help and guidance you need to get started in the design creation process.
In any small or large online project, whether personal or professional, we must make ourselves noticed, but this is time-consuming.
If you want to start making your own designs, simple but beautiful, and above all without spending too much time, Canva is the solution.
It’s tremendously intuitive, fun and easy. The program doesn’t need to be installed, and to start you just need a username or email and a password, and even that is simple because you can register with your Facebook or Google account – great for not having to remember anything!
Designing may seem simple but it’s not, it’s not just about combining a couple of sources with an image.
Also, if it happens that you don’t know where to start and nothing seems good, having a base to start is essential.
For me this is the great advantage of Canva – it gives you everything in an almost finished format. You don’t have to think about combinations or sizes if you do not want (no pixels or resolutions).
You just have to choose between one of the many established designs, and there are hundreds available. Then you write your text … and that’s it!
You can customize everything
Of course you can vary the elements, changing colors, choosing other images, uploading your own photographs, adding graphics … Once you start everything will be like a game, moving elements here and there, it’s fun!
Exploring the things you can do is not only entertaining, it will also open up a cascade of possibilities that you may not have thought of otherwise.
With Canva it’s no longer necessary to invest an extraordinary amount of time in the design of graphic elements, and you don’t need to have those innate abilities to know if your visual is well designed or aesthetically harmonious, because that part is done for you.
Without a doubt, good taste and practice help, but with Canva at least we have a starting point, making designs does not take more than a few minutes, and the result is nothing short of awesome.
