A good design can set your business apart

Did you know your design can help boost your business? Yes, good design is good business. In fact it can set your business apart. It can enhance, create awareness and build consumer trust. All this without even speaking a word.

Your design can do all that and more! So, what have you been waiting for? Are you interested in designing or making a good design. In this post, I will provide tools you may use and information to assist you in your journey. Don’t worry you do not need to be a designer or even go to school to become one.

Thanks to technology and amazing brands, design is just a click away.

Canva and Adobe Creative Cloud

If you are a YouTuber, Blogger, Entrepreneur, Publisher, Designer, Creator, Artist or any other social media person, you will have to use or incorporate design. There are many options available at your disposal, I will focus on Canva and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Let’s take a look at the Canva platform with the screenshot below:

As noted in the screenshot above, the Canva platform has almost everything visible for a quick start. This is extremely helpful if you are a beginner and you do not need any prior knowledge. The icons, features, content and usability is clearly marked. I like the heading: What will you design?

There are two menus. One runs horizontal and the other vertical on the left bar

Looking at the image below, you can see how versatile the brand kit is

Using Canva allows you to quickly design, re-design, modify or adapt to your needs. All this without a design degree or any prior qualification. They say a picture speaks a 1000 words, in the example below, notice the same cupcake with different backgrounds, text, images and accessories.

I hope the above visuals give you a sense of comfort that you do not need any prior knowledge. I am using Canva and it is very friendly.

Logo designs

I want to briefly talk about logo designs. Most people shy away from logo designs as they do not know where to start. If you want to create a simple logo for your school, artwork, project, this is a great starting point. Maybe you want to start somewhere to get a visual and perhaps looking at that design, you are willing to approach a designer to customize or create something unique.

Wedding options

This is another example of its versatility. We have all been there. Perhaps, someone in our family is getting married. What do you do? Your looking online for designs, ideas, options, people to call. Thinking of themes to start your journey. Look no further Canva offers you wedding invitation templates.
