Creating beautiful graphics and designs can be an amazing process, but it can also be a complicated & time consuming one. Without a formal education in design, creating your own graphics can be intimating. Sometimes it feels like you either have to settle for a design that is less than your desired result or end up having to hire somebody to create it for you. If you've had this issue in your life, I've got some good news for you. There is a website named Canva that helps you design your own graphics through their ready made templates and easy customization tools.
With Canva you can design just about anything from invites to logos. Many of the design elements offered are free of charges, and the ones that aren't are only $1.00 per item. If you have something in mind that isn't on already on Canva, you can upload your own photos to incorporate into the design. So far I've found that Canva is incredible easy to use, but for those times I needed a little extra assistance there were a range of design tutorials to utilize.
I'm currently dreaming up a new logo, so Canva couldn't have come into my life at a better time. Being the control freak that I am, having the ability to design my own and tweak it as I go is a dream come true. Since I haven't quite finished some of my own graphics through Canva, I thought I'd share a collection of some of the great examples that I found through the editors pick section. They really show the range of possibilities Canva has to offer. What do you guys think? Is this a DIY designers dream tool or would you rather just hire somebody for that? Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
