Description

The truth is, most of the incredible, eye-catching graphics you see online aren't created with expensive software by professional designers.

They're created by people just like you and me, using free tools that are simple and ridiculously fun to learn.

Now it's your turn. 


Whether you're a beginner looking for some guidance on basic graphic creation, or an expert looking to pick up some new tricks - this course is for you! 


What can you expect? 

This course is packed full of exciting, valuable lessons that teach you exactly how to create beautiful graphics that will help turn your online presence into something truly remarkable. It's taught using follow-along screenshare videos so you can create your projects at your own pace as you watch! Plus, I'll provide you with my custom, downloadable, mobile-friendly templates (to 2020 specifications) to ensure that each graphic you create is going to look fabulous on mobile too. 


Why is this course special?

Using a popular tool like Canva, it would be easy to simply teach you how each of the tools work so you can take one of their pre-loaded templates and customise it to suit your own needs. But if you want to truly enhance your social media, your business or your website's online presence - you'll need to learn a few tricks that other courses don't cover.

Inside this course, we'll master the basics together, and you'll become confident using Canva and other free online tools. That means no more relying on expensive graphic designers or costly and confusing design software! 

As a freelancer, business-owner and best selling course creator, I know exactly what it takes to create a lasting impact online. 


By the end of this course, you'll be able to make your own:

  • Canva graphics to use anywhere online and offline for print

  • Instagram inspirational quote graphics, multi-post images and moving GIFs for Insta Stories

  • Facebook graphics, cover photos and Facebook ad graphics

  • Pinterest pins and board covers

  • YouTube channel art, video thumbnails and image cut-outs

  • Business eBooks, mockups and compressed images to ensure your website stays super fast!


I've cut out all the fluff and filler from this course... in less than 4 hours, you'll be able to create everything you see above!
