You will need a laptop or desktop computer and an Internet connection. No previous design skills required.
Did you know that Canva recently went through a massive update (Sept 2018)?
People now call it Canva 2.0.
I’m sure you want to learn the latest cool things you can do with Canva right? If you do, you are in the right place!
This course is Canva 2.0 ready, meaning it will cover all the latest features and functionalities of the platform.
Some of these new features include: publishing your designs directly on social media from Canva, Scheduling social media posts from Canva, creating animated text and GIFs and building simple websites and landing pages with Canva!
Another wonderful thing happened since I launched this course here on Udemy: Canva reached out to me and invited me to become a Canva Certified Creative™ , which is a select group of Canva certified instructors. This “brand ambassador” status gives me access to new features, but also allows me to communicate with Canva on a regular basis, helping me better understand all the subtleties of the platform.
By joining this course you’ll also gain access to a mastermind group on facebook where I publish tutorials and Canva news weekly.
All this probably makes me the perfect instructor to teach you how to use Canva like a pro and become a better graphic designer.
I strongly believe this course is different from the other courses about Canva on this platform
Let me tell you how:
First it’s a Master Course, meaning we will go into details to present all the features and functionalities of Canva & Canva 2.0, this wonderful and free app that will allow you to create stunning designs in no time! In this course, we will dive a bit deeper.
Second, I wanted the course to be as hands-on & practical as possible for you. It will not only teach you how to use Canva, but will help you develop a brand identity for your business or organization. Your brand identity is indeed the foundation upon which you should build your company’s communication. It includes your mission, vision, target audience, personality and core values. We will make sure to cover all these fundamentals of graphic design before we start designing.
Then, instead of creating some random graphics to teach you how to use Canva, we will start by designing a Brand Style Guide. Of course, we will do this with Canva! A brand style guide is a document that explains how an organization visually presents itself to the world. It provides guidelines about the logo, the color palette, the typography, the imagery style and the tone of voice. In section 4, I’ll show you step-by-step how to use Canva to create your very own brand style guide. You will then use this document during the rest of the course to create a complete set of visuals that will be useful to promote your brand.
