Design Effectively on Canva

In this workshop, you will get a greater understanding of design principles and how to apply them when creating outputs on Canva for your business.

For those not familiar with the design tool, Canva is an easy-to-use program/app that allows you to create logos, social media posts, presentations, flyers, brochures, and infographics for customers. It offers templates and design elements to bring your vision to life.

The biggest challenge we find most businesses have, is their content doesn’t stand out from the crowd. So, we will provide a bunch of practical design tips and tricks to create content that will stop customers in their tracks (for all the right reasons!).

Monday 14 August, 9:00am-10:30am, The Boathouse Centre
