Canva Jumpstart

Everything you need to know to get started with Canva.

***This Course is Currently Under Development***

Interested in learning how to use Canva but don't know where to start?

Start here.

My goal with this course is to teach you everything you need to know to create professional graphics, infographics, presentations, reports, and videos using Canva.

You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on design software to create professional graphics and reports. Trust me, as an information designer I have subscriptions and licenses for A LOT of professional design tools. But project after project I still find myself using Canva more than any other piece of software.

Canva can...

  • help you create better designs, faster.
  • simplify your design workflow.
  • improve your design collaborations.
  • make you look a design pro, even if you're not.

This course will introduce the software features, provide you with practical walkthroughs, offer practice exercises, and a set of templates you can adapt and make your own.

You'll also get access to a private space within my DiY Data Design Circle Community for you to ask questions and share you work for feedback.
