Easy-to-use graphic design software

By Lynn Sygiel, editor, Charitable Advisors

Treva Burgess has a second recommendation – Canva. It’s a simple, free, online design tool software, and is a boon for nonprofits that don’t have graphic designers.

Setting up an account is free, as are many of its design elements. After creating an account and logging in, the user can start a new project and select from pre-set dimensions for many options.

Launched in 2013, the company debuted a service that allows easy creation of graphics like slideshows, invitations, handouts, posters, infographics, Facebook and blog graphics.

It is an easy to use to drop and drag system that has an interactive design school with hands-on tutorials. The user searches for an image or uploads one, and then drags it to the design. The result is professional looking event flyers, invitations and material for use on social media.

Currently, each Mary Rigg staff member has an individual account, but this summer the graphic company will be launching Canva for Work. Then staff will be able to share designs, which makes it easy to have a common appearance for the center’s Facebook page, website and Twitter accounts.
