While many of you farm out your design work, I just got introduced to Canva and it's pretty impressive.
I'm a big fan of outsourcing, but a lot of you have a great sense of design and this is well worth your time to take the tour. What I loved most was the ability for Canva to help me think through the design process and actually come up with some things that would be fun to illustrate for the SCU blog. They're helping me raise the bar on my game and using Canva looks like it's going to give me the ability to add a touch of class to a number of different projects.
I also love the ease of use. Most of you know I'm a poster child for "low-technology". That means everything has got to be easy for me to understand and use. Well, Canva's brought this incredible ease of use to the party and no, I don't have anything at stake...no investment in the company. I've just got a love for simplicity and applications that are fun to use. Just click on the banner below and take a look for yourself.
I just opened an account of my own, giving me a chance to have some fun upgrading a few design projects I've had in my head for a little while. More to come...
