Canva – Graphic Design Made Simple

Back to your Student Dashboard


Canva is a drag-and-drop graphic design tool for non-designers (that designers also love).  It is incredibly simple to use. I often use Canva for my social media quote images, for blog graphics, flyers,  and ebook covers. I even designed my business card from Canva. One of the best things about Canva is its templates. They have templates for anything you can think of designing (book covers, brochures,  resumes, certificates, tickets, bookmarks, etc) that you can build upon.

Canva is FREE but there is also a paid Canva for Work option that is worth every penny. With that you can create transparent images, resize images easily (so make one image for every social media profile with one click), save custom fonts and colors, and even GIFs from your images.

To top it off, Canva’s founder and CEO is an fabulous young woman of color. That just makes me love it more.
