Canva workshop: Graphic design for non-designers

When you are marketing your business online, there are so many places that you need to create image – social media, blog posts, advertising, your website… but getting those images right can be a bit tricky and can be the difference between your brand looking awesome or amateur. 

But graphic designers can be expensive and creating those images can also feel like really hard work.   

In this workshop, we will show you how to create fabulous graphics using Canva.  Canva is a free tool that allows you to create great looking graphics easily and simply – but it’s not intuitive. 

We have used Canva to create downloadables for our website, marketing booklets, presentations and more.  They look very professional and have a wow factor. 

Below is an example of our social media planner that I created in Canva. Once I had created it, at the click of a button, I had a version that was ready to send to the printer with all the right settings automatically created and it has become the most popular download on this website!

Images are one of the most powerful ways to create a connection with your audience. Content with relevant images gets 94% engagement than content without. But bad images also have an impact.

They will either turn your audience away or make an impression (perhaps one that you don’t want) about your brand.

So how do you create images that make the right impression rather than the wrong one?
