In our digital world, design is key and creating visually appealing content is a must. If you feel like you do not have the skills to create your own content, think again. There are online tools like Canva and Creative Market that are catered toward the non-designer.

Canva and Creative Market are online platforms that allow you to master your own design! They provide the tools to create beautiful, professional layouts that will keep consistency across your brand or business. The best part about these platforms is that they are not overwhelming. These tools are full of easy-to-use features and they almost walk you through the design process. And, you can even design on the go using Canva’s app!

Canva has hundreds of templates to choose from. You can create social posts, presentations, resumes, emails, flyers, business cards, etc. If you can think of it, they probably have it and they make it easy to customize. The templates provide great inspiration if you are feeling stuck in your own design.

Once you choose a template, it is easy to drag and drop your own photos in the templates or choose from free stock photos. Canva also has a lot of graphics to choose from and you can choose colors, fonts, etc.

The more comfortable you get with these tools the more you can create. Canva has many free options, but once you feel like you have a handle on design it may be worth it to dive into the ‘add on’ options.
