I was slow to warm up to this free design tool, as it can sometimes be glitchy and counterintuitive, but I keep going back to it and discovering something else it can do. Canva has a lot of features I love:
- Seamless syncing between mobile and desktop
- Flexible ability to design pretty much anything, whether it's an image, text-based, video, or mixed
- A nice selection of freebies
I'm only just beginning to get acquainted with Canva's full potential, but the more I discover, the more I love it. It's not just a social media tool - it has the ability to design just about any print material you can think of (resumes, brochures, business cards, book covers, even ebooks), plus a great selection of templates to give you ideas and make the job easier. I designed my website header in Canva, I'm working on a shiny new resume, and I have plans to use Canva for a whole list of projects I had on my to-do list, from business cards to ebooks.
I still do most of my video editing in a dedicated video editor due to how glitchy Canva's video editor seems to be, but I'm realizing how powerful of a design tool Canva is for just about everything else!
