Whether you are a social media professional or just a professional in any career – graphics is an important part of presentations, events, group, online and meeting communications. In the past expensive and complicated graphics software was needed to create and “size” graphics.
I have been following and learning about social media from Guy Kawaski for years and recently he shared information about Canva as a great website to create graphics. I started using Canva for my social media and professional graphic projects and was thrilled at how easy it was for even people like me (graphically challenged). I just received a press release that Canva is now available on the iPad, which makes it even easier to create graphics on the go!
“Canva makes it amazingly simple for everyone to create professional quality graphic designs. Its online design platform brings together a simple drag-and-drop design tool and a library of more than one million photographs, graphics and fonts, allowing anyone to take an idea and present it beautifully in print or online.
Canva can be used to design almost anything: presentations, posters, blog content, cards, online marketing materials, invitations, flyers and so much more.
“Design for work, and play. Never worry about dimensions again. Easily design for social media, blog graphics and print. Create social media graphics with ease. Professionally designed layouts that are perfect for Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, and Instagram.
- Design on your iPad or the Web. Create a design on your desktop computer, edit it on the go.
- Collaborate with anyone, anywhere. Canva lets you share and edit your designs with friends, clients and coworkers.
- Choose from one million images and hundreds of fonts. Design with 1 million photos, graphics and fonts, or upload your own.”
For example, I was on a tight deadline to write a post about tips for finding your kids first phone. Canva enabled me to quickly add a text banner to my graphic that looked great across social media platforms. I also use Canva to size my graphics for different online platforms. The flexibility to either find my own graphics or use Canva’s vast collection ensures that I can always get what I need.
Canva will be available in the app store starting from today. Find out more at http://about.canva.com/ipad.
