Canva is a great design tool for public relations professionals. It is straightforward to use and has many benefits that make it one of the best websites to create designs.
Canva has a variety of great features:
Canva is mostly free. Canva has many fonts and graphics that don’t cost anything to use. You can make an account and do not have to pay for a subscription.
Canva has preset sizes and templates for social media posts, postcards, posters, cards, flyers, etc. Having preset options can save someone so much time when trying to figure out specific dimensions for their creation. Just click on the type of content you want to create and they already have everything sized and designed for you.
Canva has an easy to share option. If you are working with a team and you want to send a design you are working on to another person, Canva has that option. It’s as easy as entering in email addresses and sending it with their team. Canva allows you to share designs with a thousand people before you have to pay. This makes it so much easier for people to conduct edits to your design if needed and give you feedback.
Canva automatically saves all your designs. This is beneficial because you can access your design or past designs anywhere you go. You do not have to save your design to a flash drive or be restricted to only using a certain computer. This also means you do not need to worry if your computer malfunctions or shuts down because your hard work will be safe.
Canva allows you to upload images or logos to a template. If you are working on a design for a company and you need to use a specific logo, Canva allows you to easily upload the logo for free. It will also save your logo or image upload in your account drive if you need to use it again in the future.
Canva is an easy to use and free design tool that I believe all public relations professionals should utilize. Sign-up for your free Canva account today!
