There are a lot of infographic tools out these days but none have won me over like Canva has. My coworker Mattea turned me on to this online application when we were tasked with creating an infographic for our bosses to illustrate some workstreams. Here’s what we produced:
Canva has a lot going for it. Thousands of templates for web and print use. Much of the material is free. You only have to pay for Canva images when you use them (usually $1 a piece). To avoid the cost you can upload your own images and avoid custom fonts. One of the things that make it most appealing is the ease of use. You can create an infographic, poster, invite, or web graphic in minutes-really! And you don’t need a heavy background in graphic design due to the fabulous templates and the alignment tools that are built in. When you’re finished with your design it’s automatically saved online and you can download in pdf, jpg or png formats. Canva scores a 10 from me and you should try it out! Here’s the link. Let me know what you think.
