Graphic Design For Newbs

Posted by Christie Gray on Wednesday, July 8th, 2015 at 7:30pm.

Hi all!  

Recently, one of my colleagues and friends asked what I use for graphic design. Sharing is caring!

 I use, and HIGHLY recommend, for simple graphic design projects.  It is quick, user-friendly, close to free (certain features cost $1...most are free) and wonderful.  I stumbled upon it during a night spent in the woes of Photoshopping.  I thought...there HAS to be a better way, did a little research, and voila!  Canva to the rescue.  

 You can make business cards, flyers, logos, Twitter/Google+/Facebook banners, photo collages, and a whole lot more.  It is NOT good for editing photos (re-touching red eyes, smoothing out skin, etc.) but it is great for designing appealing graphics and typography sets.      

These are a few designs I made on Canva.  The one at the top of my post is my logo, which I use on everything.  The one immediately underneath this text is my business card.  Good bye, blah business cards that get thrown out immediately!  The one on the bottom is used for my "Fresh Listing Friday" facebook campaign.  


So there you have it; my plug for Canva.  Give it a try, I bet you won't regret it.  Have a fabulous day!
