Following on from my 4 part blog series on creating, scheduling and outsourcing creation of ‘quote images’, this blog post features a new online tool I have found or maybe I shoud say, found me!!!
I’m a big fan of Social Media, I love how Social Media makes vast amounts of information hugely accessible to anyone with an internet connection, I love how it makes that information so easy to share and I love how Social Media enables us to make global connections on a personal and professional level with people who share common interests with us.
One of these connections was made a few weeks ago when Sylvester Jainaiz (Community Outreach Specialist for Canva) contacted me.
Sylvester had seen my blog post on scheduling inspirational quotes and suggested I try Canva to create these inspirational ‘quote images’.
And so I signed up to Canva and began exploring the possibilities it offered.
As outlined in their design material,
‘Canva is an online design platform that makes it easy for everybody to create beautiful graphics. You can design almost anything in Canva: from Social Media graphics to posters and business cards to presentations’.
Sylvester described Canva to me as ‘a highly collaborative, drag-and-drop, design software that’s completely free to use. It’s own library is home to thousands of professionally designed social media templates (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube and so much more) and visually-appealing graphics that can greatly boost your brand and effectively engage your audience’.
I’m sure Canva can do magical things with design as reported by the numerous mails I continue to receive jam packed with information on Canva’s capabilities since I signed up to Canva‘s newsletter. For the purpose of this blog post, I will focus on using Canva to create ‘quote images’ which is what I am using Canva for presently. I’m sure in the future I will find many more uses for this super website.
If you have read my blog series on creating, scheduling and outsourcing creation of ‘quote images’ you will know I currently use Quotescover.com to create ‘quote images’.
Canva takes creating ‘quote images’ to another level!
There are so many image templates to choose from and as many options again for fonts types and font colours. The image templates available are all extremely professional looking and feel like they were created specifically with quotes in mind! And most of them are totally free to use!
Creating the ‘quote images’ is super easy and efficient, they can be downloaded for use or shared directly to FaceBook and Twitter.
If you like design and are looking for a new tool to use I highly recommend Canva.
I’m looking forward to learning more about Canva and sharing these learnings with you.
