WEEK 11: Info in a graphic

March 27, 2017

Everything’s better with good visuals. Meet Canva, a user-friendly graphic design tool with almost unlimited options. You may be wondering what you can use it for or what you will be using it for. Here are some ideas:

  • Blog header
  • Presentation opening slide
  • Information graphic
  • Facebook or Twitter header
  • Book cover or ebook cover
  • Magazine cover (real or pretend)
  • Menus
  • Social media post images
  • What else can you think of?

No one is you

 

Creations can be made from free images on Canva or images for $1 each. Or you can upload your own. Templates provide a variety of layouts. There are also backgrounds, icons, illustrations, just everything you can think of to create what you need. And, again, you can upload your own.

Once your image is complete, you can download as a jpg for web at a lower resolution or a higher resolution pdf for print. It’s all user-friendly.

Think of how you can use Canva for last week’s listicle or for your Passion Project, as well as other possibilities. Work this week on at least one image for a digicomm project, but spend some time playing around with it and see how many different uses you can find and creations you can make.

Don’t forget to update your audience by the end of the week about your Passion Project.
