A graphic conveys a thousand create one!

Many times a DKG member who is working on a project of some sort needs something to make it stand out. She checks clip art and photos online, but nothing seems just right. There is an easy way to make an original graphic that will make your project pop! We mentioned Canva in a previous posting. Perhaps some of you tried it out. If not, now is the time. You will not regret it.

Canva is a free graphic-design tool website, founded in 2012. It has an easy to use drag-and-drop interface and provides access to over a million photographs, graphics, and fonts. It is used by non-designers as well as professionals. The tools can be used for both web and print media design and graphics. (Canva - Wikipedia

Both free and paid versions are available. For most DKG members, the free version is more than sufficient. Any graphic that is created is saved and can be reworked.

Canva has many strong points, but one does stand out. Every time you need a graphic, you probably need a special size. For example presentations (PowerPoint) need a 1920 px by 1080 px, while a Facebook cover is 828 px by 315 px. These are only two examples of the many templates available.

You can upload your own photos or special icons or use one of the many free ones.

Below are examples that were made using Canva. We hope you are inspired to get creative.
