Design tips and tricks
Choose your design type
When you log in to Canva, you’ll land on the homepage. To start designing, click Create a design in the toolbar, or simply type your chosen design type into the search bar. The menu on the right also allows you to navigate to your brand kit, design folders, team stream, and account settings. Once you've created a design, you can access it again from the homepage, under All your designs.
Canva has pre-set the ideal dimensions for each design type, whether you’re creating a logo, letterhead or Facebook post. You can also set custom dimensions by typing “custom” into the search box.
Choose and customize a template
Once you’ve chosen what kind of design you’d like to create, you’ll find yourself inside the Canva editor. This is where the magic happens! To help you get familiarized with the parts of the editor, here are its most basic parts:
Menu bar – This is the menu bar on the very top of the editor. From here, you’ll be able to access the features like Undo, Redo, Resize, Share, Download, Order prints, and others. You’ll also be able to see your design’s saving status from here.
Side panel – This panel that appears on the side of the editor is where you’ll be able to access the templates and elements you can use in your design. It’s divided into 6 tabs dedicated to Templates, Images, Text, Uploads, Folders, and Apps.
Canvas – At first, this is the blank white space occupying the majority of the editor. Consider this your main workspace since this is where you’ll work on your designs.
Templates are your shortcut to good design. (You can also design from scratch, but templates are the best way to get started quickly.) In the side panel you’ll see a range of templates that you can choose from—you can also search for a specific theme in the search bar. Every template is fully customizable, which means you can change the fonts, colors, images—everything!—to your tastes.
Publish your design
Once you’re happy with your design, it’s time to publish it.
Click the Publish button in the menu bar and you’ll see a dropdown list of all of your options.
You can Download, share to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn, or even order professional prints delivered to your door. There are endless possibilities, so head here to read more about publishing your design.
