Here’s the Easier Way
This is a situation we’ve seen happen time and again at medical practices we work with. For our own needs, we also constantly need graphics to create social posts, flyers, posters, holiday graphics and more.
It can seem like just as much work explaining what you want to a designer as it is to try to create it yourself. So, here’s how to create it yourself.
It’s called Canva, it’s free and it’s awesome.
Canva has dozens of free templates to help even the most graphic design challenged of us create something spectacular in just a few minutes. Social media graphic sized just right? Check. Flyer templates? You bet. Poster designs? Sure thing. It’s all there and most of it the templates are free.
They even offer a design school to walk you through the elements of great design for the ‘non-designer’.
Here’s What You Need to Get Started
Gettings started with Canva is super easy, and dare I say, even fun. Here’s what you’ll need:
- A browser open to Canva.com
- Your practice logo in a .PNG format (that means there’s no background)
- Your practice colors
- Stock images you want to use in your art (if you don’t have any, you can purchase them from Canva starting at $1)
That’s it! Good luck creating your next masterpiece (or that YMCA event flyer – whichever comes first).
Disclosure: Canva had nothing to do with this post and we were not paid to promote or endorse them in any way. We just think it’s a great resource and thought you would too.
