Have you been dying to learn Canva? Canva It is a cloud based design alternative for those overwhelmed by photoshop and illustrator. I am a Canva Certified Creative and I have 12+ years of graphic design experience. I even use Canva for quick projects and ad designs/social media campaigns. It is a pretty powerful but easy tool. I created this course to show you how you can use Canva to create an entire brand including a Logo, T-shirt, social media graphics, poster, business card, letterhead and more!

This class will walk you though a logo and branding project. We will create a social media graphic, a poster and finally a business card and other branded items. You will learn all the basic elements of canva along the way. I will also provide some expert design/layout and branding advice as well! So let's Learn Together!

We will learn how to:

  • Create a Logo

  • Business Card

  • Social media graphics

  • NEW! Design a t-shirt using on Canva

  • Graphics for use on all branded items

New bonus section, learn to create a T-shirt using only Canva! Then get it ready to go online for sale!

I want to keep this class dynamic, so new lectures and sections will be added as time goes on. Please feel free to let me know a topic or item you want me to add in the future.
