So you have just gone to all that trouble of writing the perfectly crafted social media post, blog article, email newsletter or a new page of your website and all you need is a nice looking image to go with it. But you don’t have Photoshop or any graphic design skills so you start searching for a relevant image from Google or stock image site. Well if all of your competitors are doing the same thing (and they are), your next marketing campaign probably isn’t standing out as much as you think.

The human brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text and graphics drive up to 180% more engagement on social media and websites. 

Canva is a free online graphic design tool that makes it easy to create stunning images by yourself for your company. With its easy to use drag & drop editor you can quickly and easily turn your next blog article, presentation, Facebook cover, flyer, poster or invitation into something really special. 

Choose from thousands of fonts, icons, images, borders and colours. It also has built-in photo editing to make you look like a graphic designer, without being a graphic designer. An iPad app has just been released to give you their powerful design tools at your fingertips.

If you are looking for a fun, easy, fast and cost effective way to create stunning graphics for your business then you need to start using Canva.
