Canva is a free do-it-yourself, drag-and-drop graphic design tool
You worked hard to create your personal corporate style. Now you want people to find you.
And in order for people to find you, they have to know you exist. That’s why sharing your content on popular social media websites is really important. Your goal is to create an amazing look and feel content that leaves your readers inspired and motivated.
It is becoming more and more important to create beautiful visuals for your creative biz. Especially if you want to get notice and grab people’s attention to generate more likes, comments, and shares on Social Media. You can get more engagement, and grow your business with consistent social media graphics that look amazing. You can use your brand’s colors and fonts to make your visuals uniquely yours.
That’s why I love Canva so much. You can easily design beautiful, professional graphics. You can choose from hundreds of professionally designed layouts or create your designs from scratch.
Canva has a drag-and-drop design tool and a library of stock photographs, graphic elements, and fonts. Everything you need to make a stunning design. There is a number of pre-set formats, to begin with.
- Social Media Posts like Instagram and Pinterest
- Facebook covers
- Blog Graphics
- Business Cards

DIY – Make Instagram graphics using Canva

If you are new to Canva don’t be afraid to go bananas and try all kinds of new things. Canva has a undo button so the worst that can happen is that you go back a step or two.
