Canva Advanced Design Tips



Finding quick and easy graphics tools for social media specialists and everyday editors is one of the key challenges in today's busy marketing and publishing environment. I've been enjoying Canva as a welcome newcomer to the group of options, and have been using it a lot for my work Facebook Page posts.

I took part in this recent very interesting Canva webinar, and am sharing the resources with you, as outlined below.

I've listed the blog posts referred to during the webinar as well as some handy sites to draw inspiration and ideas for what Canva calls "your creative journey."

I have also included a link to Canva's free eBook that is packed with font combinations, color palettes and techniques to apply custom filters.
