How To: Canva for Graphic Design [CSI Members]

Posters! Reports! Social media shareables! Oh my! 

Have you worked with a graphic designer to build your brand kit, but find it challenging to use these assets in your communications? Or maybe you’re just getting started on your brand design. 

Tools like Canva take the wizardry of professional illustrator programs and repackage them in a user friendly interface. They allow your organization to set up Brand Kits and make it much easier to update graphics while keeping the look and feel of content consistent. They also make a variety of templates, photography and even original illustration available to you. Whether using the free or paid versions, these online tools can help you get your message heard.
