Simply put, Canva is a free online programme that can be used to design and create great looking documents, posters, logos, brochures, Facebook headers, magazines, photo montages – basically anything you will ever need to advertise and promote your creative group or project.

But here’s the best bit, you don’t have to be a designer or have a background in graphic design to use it and get great results! There are lots of great templates available for you to use when signed into your free account, as well as stock images, fonts and illustrations.

In this video, Fin explains why Canva is such a life-saver and how your group can make the most of this free tool . . .
