The free online design app Canva allows you to create professional visuals

If you’re looking to create high-quality visuals to support your business but don’t have the cash to hire a designer, you should check out Canva. The online design tool provides all the tools you need to create high-quality graphics in minutes or hours rather than days or weeks. Plus, it’s completely free! Follow these steps and find out how easy it can be to create top-notch visual content with Canva.

What is Canva

If you don’t have a background in design, it can be hard to get started creating professional-looking visuals. With Canva’s simple-to-use online tool, however, it doesn’t take any special skills to make graphics that look great. Not only does Canva offer templates and pre-made graphics for creating Facebook covers, advertisements, presentations and more - it also has more than 1 million images that can be customized for free by users. The best part? It takes less than 10 minutes to create something beautiful with Canva.

How I use Canva

Great for beginner and novice graphics designers, Canva is an online graphics design app that allows you to create beautiful designs in a matter of minutes. Whether you’re planning on creating a flyer, poster, social media graphic or something else entirely, I definitely recommend giving it a shot! I personally use Canva multiple times per week. Check out their free version here!

Tips on designing with Canva

Before you begin designing, it’s a good idea to create a draft of your content in an outline or .txt document. A clear idea of what you want your visual content to say will help you decide what images, fonts, and other elements will work best for your design. Remember: designs are also much more effective when they’re specific. In addition to being free, Canva also has several templates that you can select. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use professional design programs; there are plenty of easy templates available on Canva that will allow you to create incredible graphics for your business without any experience! Templates include book covers, posters, ads and more. The key is to make sure your message is clear—no matter what look you decide on.
