Get Festive on Social Media

a graphic that says

You decorate your apartment and your office for the holidays, but what about your social media profiles? Canva is a simple-to-use tool for amateur and professional designers. If you’re looking for something that you can use to add a holiday feel to your online presence, Canva is where it’s at. Did we mention that it’s free? (For the most part.)

Canva: A Free Design Tool

One of our favorite free design tools is Canva. With Canva, you can easily design holiday graphics for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more. Looking to replace that old banner image with one that resonates with the spirit of the holidays? Visit Canva’s website to get started.

What We Love About It

Canva is stocked with millions of images that are ready for users to browse, edit, and download. While there are some images that cost a small price before you can use them, you can always upload your own images.

Once you’ve selected the image(s) that you want to use in your design, editing is a simple process. Edit your photos using preset filters. Then, add free icons and shapes to enhance the visual appeal of your image. Want to add some style via a thought bubble or series of shapes? Simply just click and drag!

Canva also makes it easy to add text to whatever it is you’re designing. You’ll have access to a wide selection of fonts, making each design it’s own!

Additional Resources

Canva is a great tool that’s easy to use, but even the simplest tool can be overwhelming for a new user. Canva’s Design page makes it easy for anyone to become familiar with this online tool. Browse a quick start guide, marketing design tips, color inspiration, the hidden meaning behind the world’s most recognizable logos, and more. Canva offers a wealth of knowledge right on their website!

Well, what are you waiting for? We hope you’ll go festive on social media this season. If you don’t know where to start, Canva just might push you in the right direction. Thanks for visiting the Laguna Place Blog! Have a great month in Kissimmee, Florida!
