Preface

This book will help you to use Canva, set up your branding, and create consistent, well-designed graphics for your business. But what is Canva? And why should you use it? Well... Canva is a graphic design platform that has grown significantly in popularity in only a few short years. Its aim is to make design accessible to everyone, regardless of your design ability. On Canva, you can create any number of designs for work and home on the platform, on both desktop and the mobile app, using pre-made templates or creating them from scratch. It also allows you to edit both video and images, create animations, schedule content to social media, and create presentations for work. There is a growing number of apps being incorporated into Canva, giving you so much more flexibility and scope for growing your business. Canva, above all, is a very visual platform, simple to get to grips with, and great fun to use.
