Branding with Canva
Are you fumbling your way through Canva feeling unsure about what colours, fonts and design elements to use to get your message across?
Learn how to create a beautiful visual language that authentically communicates what your work is all about.
Branding really doesn’t have to be sleazy, corporate or manipulative,
but if you do it right it is a great kind of witchcraft.
Hi, I’m Yarrow.
In the past seven years I have helped hundreds of small business owners with their websites, branding and marketing. Playing with colours, fonts and images is something I truly enjoy and do almost every day. There are a few important tricks of the trade that I would love to share with you, but I promise branding isn’t rocket science – it’s just a fun way to illustrate your work. This course will teach you everything you need to know to get started.
You don’t have to “be a brand”, but if you find a visual language that authentically communicates what feels true for you it will be so much easier to connect with the kinds of people you really want to work with.
Here is what you’ll learn:
- What branding is and why it matters
- How to come up with beautiful and unique colour palettes
- Where to find great fonts and design elements
- How to create branded graphics for absolutely anything in Canva
After taking this course you’ll be able to dream up a beautiful visual language to illustrate your work and then create graphics for all your business needs from social media to newsletters and website banners.
I believe this course is a great fit for you if:
- You feel overwhelmed by the idea of making clear choices around your branding
- You don’t know where to start with Canva but want to create more free or low cost graphics for your business
- You want to have more fun creating marketing materials that will connect you with your ideal customers
