Taking Baby Steps with Canva

This grandma has decided she wanted to learn how to enhance her digital creations with Canva. What is Canva? It’s a graphic design tool that allows users to create a wide range of professional-looking images, videos, presentations, posters, and more. A lot of folks use it to create posts and reels for social media. It’s also a valuable tool for making  videos.Canva

So Many Features

Canva is feature rich and, as a new user, I find it overwhelming. As with any new program, I think the best way to learn Canva is to take it one feature at a time (which is easier said than done). Whenever I attempted to learn only one feature, I’d learn about a Canva-complimentary app and had to go down that rabbit hole, too.

First Things First – A Logo

My first dabbling in Canva was to create a logo. I didn’t want anything too busy or bold (like the one I had before). This time, I’m going for simple. After all, that’s how my brain works. Too much clutter or busyness doesn’t sit well with me. My old logo was too busy.
Old Logo

Being new to Canva, it’s best to start with easy edits. The beauty of creating a logo in Canva is there are plenty of templates to choose from. With a few color and wording changes, I’ve got a logo. I can always change things once I’m more proficient with the tool.

Now that I have a simplified logo, it’s time to see what else I can create with Canva.
