Canva has become the go-to choice for amateur and experienced designers. With thousands of templates to choose from for everything from Instagram Posts to PowerPoint Presentations, Canva makes design work easier than ever. But it can also be intimidating at first.
Taking a little bit of extra time to set up your Canva account right now will save you time and energy down the road. It will also set you up to quickly and easily create professional, consistent, branded content.
Here are the basics steps:
- Sign up for a free Canva account.
- Log in to the homepage and click on ‘Brand Kit’. Here you will add your brand color codes and fonts. Do not skip this step! It will save you headaches down the road! If you have your logo, but don’t know the color codes, use this color finder tool. If you have your logo, but don’t know the fonts, use this font matcher tool. If you don’t have a logo, colors, or fonts, check out Canva’s pre-designed font families and color palettes. If that’s just too much for you and you want to hire a pro to do this for you, contact me.
- Determine which templates you will use (Instagram Posts, Instagram Stories, Facebook Posts, etc.) and select your designs. If you’re getting stuck on this step, click over to explore our pre-designed, fully customizable Social Media Bundles (pricing $20-50).
- Start designing!
