Canva has been a life-changing graphics tool for tens of thousands of small businesses. It has given everyday business owners the power to create, repurpose and update their own graphics for the first time in history without having to learn a complicated graphic design package.


But for all the wonderful benefits that Canva has brought us, have you noticed how many businesses and marketers seem to be using the same templates over and over again to the point where you can almost look at any social media account or website and say, “oh yeah, they did that on Canva for sure.”


Even with hundreds of templates, eventually graphics that are built based on templates all start to look a little matchy-matchy. Yet hidden in Canva, Crello and other online graphic and video builders are tools, elements and design principles that can make your graphics and videos really stand out from the Canva Crowd.


In this free 1 hour webinar with Dante St James you’ll learn:

  1. What the rules of good graphic design are, and why most Canva-created designs look so bad when they are changed
  2. The problem with using Canva, and what some alternatives are
  3. How to get the maximum design benefit out of Canva and similar tools without having to be a graphic designer yourself
  4. How to use colour, shapes and animated elements to go from zero to hero in your next Canva project.


This workshop is brought to you by Business Station and AusIndustry under the ASBAS Digital Solutions Program
