1. What Can I Make with Canva?: Campbell overview. Campbell is basically your do it yourself graphic design tool, right? And program and app. Whatever you wanna call there so so much that can be done in camera. We're not gonna be able to cover every single thing today. But the purpose of this class is to make sure that you can actively make designs its simple , more simple than you thought. And your Brandon can be polished, just as if a graphic designer did your branding. Okay, so that's what the purpose of this class is. And I'm going to be talking to you about the important tools that I am actively using in my business. Although there is so much more than you can. I'm gonna go ahead and share my spring. Let me get it right now. So what we're gonna start today is here. Okay, Let me in large my screen. So can va. Makes it easy, guys, for us to understand what it is that they offer. What is that they do. What is that you can do with it? Okay. You can make anything from logos to animated images to power point presentations. Flyers, um, you know, images that are size appropriately for Penn trees, Facebook banners, YouTube thumbnails. It's so much that you can do as what was E books with camera, so I just want to kind of run this down. 2. Canva for Work Overview - Should I Choose a Paid Plan?: Camba has two different plans. Okay, guys, they had It's free. It's a whole lot of stuff you could do for free. And then they have Campbell for work. I had the camera for work playing guys, and I just want to give you a quick overview of everything that Campbell for work will offer. You okay? It's about you have to plans. You have the 999 plan, and you have the 12 99 plan. I think I'm one like the 12 99 plan because it allows me to have a team member. And I have an assistant who comes in here and does a lot of images for me. So it's up to you, but I think it's very reasonable. And you get a lot. At the end of the day, there are still certain images in camera that you will always have to pay for, but you don't have to use them. And just here in a second I'm gonna be talking to you about where I find ah, lot of my free images. Okay, so if you go to https about dot camba dot com and ford slash work, okay? Or if you type into Google Campbell for work. It will actually walk you through How to use Cam before with special about camera for work is that Campbell for work will walk you through designing your branding kit, and it will take you through it now. So let's say my branding has this blue color in it, which it does not. This exact blue. It's going to show you exactly what you can do. You can easily create beautiful documents and designs. It's gonna walk you through the whole shebang off of what you can do with it. What happens with Campbell for work is you're able to create a easy to edit templates they creating for, you know, I'll be showing them to you in just a second on where once you set up your Brandon colors your fonts. Then they automatically prepared templates for instagram Facebook, different platforms that you'll need to do business on. Campbell will automatically prepare those templates for you, and it's just as easy as drag or drafting. It allows you to ensure consistency across all of your documents. This really helps me when I'm working, because when you're selecting different colors and camera at the time, it's going to remind you always the time of what your branding colors are. It's always gonna save your fox. So every time you do something, you can create consistency between your documents when you do different things. So that's what's so powerful about using Campbell forward. But it pretty much walks you through it, and it's really, really nice, and it walks you through how much the plans cost. So if you look up camper for work, you can spend some time kind of like with it, just getting to know what it includes. And if that's something that you want to do, the free plan is always available. I was on it like forever before I actually upgraded, and it is just awesome. Okay, all the way around. Awesome. 3. Case Study 1 - Nurse Business Facebook Banner: Ha. Ah. First case study is going to be for Sandra. Okay, She and and some of you were not really specific about what exactly kind of document you wanted. But you did ask about a Facebook. Um, banner. Sandra. So I'm gonna go ahead and do that. So when you want to look for something to design, you want to click on the words campus so that you make sure you aren't one the home page, right? So you can search for templates anyway, that you wants. You can go by the standard ones. Here we're click more for more templates. You can search by using the search far if you know specifically what type of templates you want or you can use custom dimensions sizing. So if you want to serve in size, you can start by size if you want To. You I really do that. But sometimes I do use the search bar. But typically, I just click mawr so that I can see everything that camp has to offer. They break everything down by sections, they recommend things for you, and then you go down to social media, post documents, blogging, any books, marketing material, social media and email headers events and adds, Okay, if there's something that you need that you don't see here, it doesn't mean Camba doesn't have it. You can use the search bar to find it, okay. And so Sandra is I'm a seeming a nurse and an entrepreneur. I'm just gonna assume okays Andrew. And, um, you want to make an attractive Facebook banner? So I'm just going to kind of give examples. There's one time I'm very tedious, and I'm very particular, and I'm not gonna let that slow me down today. My job is just to show you that it is possible and how to kind of get things together quickly. I don't want to spend too much time with stuff. Campbell does a great job. One offering us great templates that are already put together. All we have to do is start with an idea and then piece together kind of the look and feel of what we want. So we're gonna start today with a Facebook. Um, banner. I don't know if it's a group banner or Facebook cover photo. I'm not sure which one, Um, that you wanted. I'm not really, really too sure let me just say social media headers, my friend, since this is a Facebook event cover, um, a Facebook cover. I'm not sure which one, but we're gonna go with this facebook covered today, okay? And we're just gonna pick a design and what I did because I don't think you sent me any pictures, Andrew. I just went in tow, unflashy, And I picked a blue nurse looking photo that I could find. And just for the examples of this class, I'm gonna scroll down and just kind of pick an example that we're gonna use. Let me see what I want to use. I wanna be to picking. Okay, That says I can get I can get carried away. Okay, So I'm gonna take this one, right? And I'm sure that blue is not your brand. I'm sure that that's not your brand. We're gonna use this as an example. Okay, So the wording that I got from you waas um nurse and don't worry about the sides right now , guys. Pron. You're OK. So I'm gonna now make the smaller and just electric eyes. No, You can change the phones if you want to, or you can take this phone completely out and they have set text under text that you can use as well. See how they have all these different designs that you can use outside of the design that they give you so I can switch these out if I once you. But right now, I'm just gonna make this smaller. No spring the war, And then down here, I'm gonna put on the rise. Okay, so I'm just going Teoh, situate this. And let's just say this is my Facebook banner. And you guys, you can even use icons. You can search, um, nurse, And let's just say that you want a You can do photos of nurses and campus. A lot of them are free and you can do illustrations. So let's say I just want, like, a symbol, you know, on here. Let's say I want that. I mean, I don't like this one, but it's a lot of them that you can go through and you can put it, you know, with your image. If you want to and see these little purple lines that are kind of showing up, these purple lines are helping me to get in line with line document. I use those a lot. They help myself to be a line properly. Okay, so let's just say her brand is nurse criminal one, the rise. I'm gonna go under up loads. This is where you're gonna upload all of your photos from your computer, all of your own slash images and things like that. They're gonna be in this section. Um, you can organize things by folders. Okay. Um, So what I'm gonna do is I fail this image into unflashy Any time you see an image over here in this area, guys, it means that you can change the image. Our So I'm gonna take this image that I found it, un slash and just kind of putting it in. Now, camp is putting a filter over my image. I have the choice to leave that black and white. I'm gonna just double click. That's how you can move it around by double clicking the picture. I don't care for the black and white. Look, not for this. So I can just go to filter, and I'm gonna take the filter off and make it normal. Okay, so that's one example If I want different examples. I can copy it down. Okay. And this is gonna be extra basic in playing guys. Let's say that Sandra wants to put her face on the side of her brand. I'm gonna use my face. I'm no nerves, but I'm gonna use my face. I'm just gonna slide my face in there. And you know what? I think that if it's my face, I might look better in black and white. I go to filter, and I'm gonna change my filter. Here's a good one. And so check that out. Guys, that looks pretty nice. And that was done in just a couple minutes. You're free to explore it. You're free to do different designs if you want. Teoh. Okay, completely up to you. So you guys have any thoughts in questions about what we've just done? It was really quick. If you want to try other layouts, you're free to do so. Just click on layout and what I like to do is add a new page underneath, and then I can slide in different images so that I can try different things. So let me try another one really quickly. I just want to show you how quickly days. Let's say I just want to do this one So it comes over. I can change my background color. Let's say I want that to be blue again and see how it saves the colors I've been using up there. I'm gonna go when I'm gonna slide. And I mean, this one looks pretty much the same as a time when Maybe that's not a good example. Let me see. Let me just try something else. Let's just say she wanted to do something like this. I'm not a big fan of this, but let's just say she did. We can change the blacks and we can make them blue. And we can change her phone spy just by clicking here My face. You want something a little more fancy? Let's try a Laura. And what we could do is stretch the box out in the tax. I mean, I'm clicking in with the box. Okay. I'm gonna make that longer because I know the word is long And see these purple lines are coming up to tell me when I'm center. They're very helpful. So I say I want Teoh put this and again Nurse for new war. I'm gonna center the words by my purple lines. And if I want to enlarge this, I'm going to do that by just increasing the number of making that bigger, stretching that out center. And then he I'll just put it on the rise. Okay? And you can make these forints whatever you want to. They can be whatever you want to. You can just change them. You can try different thoughts. You can see what goes well together. If you get Campbell for work, you can set your phones to be the same all the time. Okay, I don't care for this, but I'm just giving you guys examples off. What this can look like. You can take these blacks, and you can make them transparent so that you can peer through to the back if you want to. These are things that you can dio. You can take your background image and you can switch that out for something else. Like we had that nurse. Um, picture at first, right. You can change this background. So black, Like whatever you want to do, play around with it. We could make this black change her for being so transparent and being more solid. Okay, we could do, and then you can slide your logo in here. I keep all of my logos in a logo folder, and Campbell for work will walk you through up loading a logos. Let's say that this is a he calm cash queen thing. I can slide one of my locals in here because it's already there for May one type of my image. So I just wanted to give you guys some examples. Um, and you can do different renditions by just either copying this down. If you just want to change the background, just a kind of compare. We're adding a new page if you want to do a completely different templates. 4. Case Study 2 - Health Beauty Business Flyer/PDF: Ah, once a case number two. I only took two cases guys from the forms because a lot of the forms came in late later in the day. Last night. Um, so I only took a couple because I also want to go through the ways that I'm using clamber as well. So we really have to move along. So I'm gonna double check just to see. Okay, No more questions. It doesn't look like I'm not seeing anyone else. Okay, guys. So are you following along? Let me know. Yes. Know if you have any questions. Definitely. Post them in the chat for me. Okay, So our case number, it's too is Sean Tay. OK, this is our beauty small case, all right. And, um, she wants to know, Like, how do I create are catching flyers? MPs. So I started off guys with how you create the pds and how creating PDFs just a simple is how you say the document. So you're gonna know that you need to save the document as a pdf we're gonna do. We're starting at home on camera. We're gonna select flyer. Um, so I'm just gonna pick a basic template for a flyer for a health and beauty business, OK, and I'm going to scroll down your idea of what this should look like. Maybe different. I'm sure it will. I'm just gonna pick something basic. And they have all these different templates. So based on their templates, can ask for just to start with an idea. Once you apply the template, you change it and you make it your very own. So you're only trying to start with some sort of idea. That's all you're trying to dio. So I say I start with this one is OK. I don't know if this is really your colors, but, um see how this can get. I'm gonna go with something playing. So this is talking about coffee? This has nothing to do with Sean Taste brand or anything like that. I'm gonna double this as well so we can come up with a couple examples. We have this one, and, you know, we can also do something like that, too. So, Sean say, I know you ask the question about are the specific templates that do best. It really isn't. Um but you can always test it, though you can always try different designs and see what your specific audience responds best to. Um, I don't find that my audience responds best to any specific template. It's more so, I think, the colors and playing the psychology behind colors. And I'm gonna talk to you guys a little bit about that. That makes a difference. So here's a flyer. Here's a couple flowers for us to start with, okay? And it's literally just from here about making it your own. So I have a picture of Sean taste somewhere in here because she's been with a few of my platforms and things like that. But I got one from UNP slash, which is just some flowers, which I thought was pretty. And just this I just switched out the picture, which has already changed it. These words can also be changed. Okay. In Sean tat and Sean, stay put. Some, um she put some words in her form. Okay, that I'm gonna use so first of all class. And I don't know if I can use this hand sign like this. John today, Um, yes, in body care. I'll see. So first, I'm gonna need to make that smaller. Um, the font isn't great to me, but I'm gonna I'm gonna make it a little smaller, okay? And she may prefer cursive fonts. She may not prefer cursive fonts. I'm not 100% sure, you know, But when I hear class and elegance, maybe I think something fancy, but you want to make sure it can also be read to you don't want to be See that. See how sometimes curse of fonts for business can be bad because people can't read things. Well, they've got a whole bunch of different bonds in here that can be used. So you just have to play it, play around with them to see which one works best for you. And I'm probably gonna give up here in a minute because I don't want to waste time on Florence. Okay, guys, but just to let you know, this can be changed. I think I'm going to stick with the original phones, and so I'm gonna center this okay in The next thing I'm gonna do is, um it's so there's a file s on here. There's a follow us on Facebook, twitter and instagram. And it's house you wear. I'm gonna show you what I do for that. So here, I'm gonna put I'm sorry, guys, with this cough. I'm so sorry. I want to put her website, and I'm actually when I put it with here, Okay, we're gonna put it here. And if this is like a pdf, you can always make this link clickable by just clicking it and putting your Lincoln. Okay? It's just gonna be a regular flyer. That's not gonna be a pdf. Of course, it's not going to be able to be clickable. Um, but I want to put the other word again. So I'm going to say, um, good for the mine and body. I'm gonna spread this out, and she has me copy because you preserve the best. Naturally. Now, this is gonna be a lot of wording for this font. So overall, we may have to possibly make things a little smaller, Mack. Sure. Let me see. So she could take these things. Guys, um, you know, she could take him, put a line in between here to kind of separate things if she wants to. It's so many things that you could do, um, in here like a ton of things. She could take a line. She's seen the pink line. Whatever her brand colors are in between. You know, she can say what she wants to say down here because you deserve the best. Naturally, you know, we stretch this out to get more words on the line, but I know that this isn't gonna fit. Um, we can even make it smaller to make If it I think it's pretty tight. Let me see. And where is Okay? Hold on, guys. Make this a little smaller, right? Me too small? Yes, a little small, but it's a lot of things you can do with this. Okay, You make it stand out. That's safe. And these are kind of like the colors for my brand there already set up here. Like I was saying, You see how appear guys that says brand colors? Um, yeah, they're all gonna be up here for me, so I don't have to go like digging for them, okay? And then her website is a year. And one thing I can do, especially if the flyer is, um I could I can even make this shorter. I can even make this part smaller if I want to If I want more room, I can make more room if I want to. So, with so much you can do and follow your lines, OK? And then what I can do is put in Social Media icon. So she says, you know, follow us Coin. Um, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And I like to put icons in for Mike. Follow us is That's what I like to do. These circles air really cute. So I'm just gonna make them small, and I'm gonna pack them into the bottom of her flyer. He's gonna be kind of a foul, anything and that That might be too big, but let me see Facebook instagram. They have all kinds of different free icons, guys, and you can change the colors if you want to just half the size and whatever size you want . And another row Cool thing, guys, is that if this is like a pdf that someone opens, you can link your social media profiles, Um, you know, to the icons by clicking them and clicking the way. And it would be like facebook dot com whatever and applying it so that person can just click on the lakes to follow you. And I do that with a lot of my e books and stuff and guides, free guides and stuff like that. So I'm just gonna pop Twitter in here as well. And one other thing I want to show you is something else that you can do is when your size in these little icons, you see the little numbers, it really small. But they're coming up beside the icon bottom light as I resize it. If I want it all to be the same size, I can pay attention to that number. So 65 by 65 for instance, or 61 by 61. It tells me what size they are so that all of these can aligned properly can be the same size. But I'm not gonna be that anal right now, guys, Right? Only in that angle so happened that in okay, and just there, this one's a little smaller right now. Okay, But this is this is something you can do. And you can even put a little text on the side of playful text that says, follow us so you can take some pre designed text over here. Maybe a little more of a playful text, and you can just pop it in here and waiting for it to appear just to kind of show you. And I want to show you what you can dio First thing I like to do is to ungroomed the text because right now it's kind of like a package deal, and that gets really annoying. And I may want to throw away specific parts of the tax alone. And so now I can do that because it's ungroomed. I know it's kind of hard to see guys, but in here I'm going to just make it smaller, maybe like a 21 or something. And I'm gonna say Follow us because let's just say this isn't a PDS. Um, it's Sea Bears body and guys go ahead and follow her. Okay, If you guys haven't connected with her already, go one and do that. So okay, And you can make this as small as you want. You can even but this one kind of like two lines incinerates so that, um and you can just take it over here and you can just rotate it just like that any way you want. And put its packet to the side. Just make it smaller until it works. Just one. If this is all about trying different things, guys, until it works, here's another one down bottom. Um, and once again, I'm just want to kind of copy the top of the flyer to the bottom. We're gonna change us back around. I'm not sure what color we're gonna make it yet. Um, okay. And I just want to show you guys all right, What we could do with this. Let's see what I would do. So if this were mine, you guys can let me know which one you like better. That'll be fun. That's too small. ISI 18 still up to 24. May be okay, and I'm gonna slide it up here down here. I'm gonna write something else. First, I'm gonna change this back room to something else, thinking I'll change it to this yellow. And then in here, I'm going to say, um and up here is where you can uppercase all letters or lower case all letters. I'm gonna take that off. I don't want to upper case on my letters this time. Good for the mind and body. right. Going to make that a little smaller. It is 16. I'm gonna really just right under it. And because you deserve the best. Naturally, I just love that. I love that Sean saying, by the way, Okay. And I'm going to center that, and you can make that tax. Whatever you want to kind of stand out. You know, like this appear. Could be black. Whatever you want to do with it to make it your own. It's completely up to you. Whatever you want to do to make it stand out. It's fine. You can make this a white white. If you feel like this isn't standing out enough were created or more cream color white. Whatever you want to do, you can pop your logo in there. Let me see if I can find. So here it is. Okay, So here is Sean to his picture. I don't like that filter on it, so I'm gonna take that off. I just want to make it normal. I don't want her to have a filter here because the picture is full of so much good color. So this bottom guys can be made black or white? Doesn't matter. Well, whatever color she wants, okay? But I'm gonna make it black, and then I'm gonna change this writing Toe white. Okay? And the more you play in here, guys, the better you get at it, the better you get at it. All right, um, and let's see. So I'm just gonna say I'm gonna put our website at the bottom, and once again, I don't want this whole upper case. I'm gonna take that off. Okay, so www dots, um, where? Okay, okay, I'm gonna slide that when I can't even keep it to the top of whatever I want to do. But I'm sliding down the bottom and then literally gosh, and just take, like, the's at, cause if you don't want toe, you can copy. You can just don't know if it'll let me. I wanted to let me think it lets me sliding out to this. It does. So I'm just like sliding the ones from up there Down to this image is I don't even feel like to win it again. So I'm just I'm just coming down and I'm sliding these down here so that she could be followed. And I love to show the icons. I think it looks so professional when you put the icons one to your flyers in your advertisements and stuff. So instead of just saying, find me on Facebook, you know, you're saying, you know, a little more than that with with showing the icons. And I just think it looks really nice. So I'm using my lines to center, everything kind of out, and then I'm sliding these in and the lines are really good for directing you. Okay? And then I can do the same. Follow us. You know, if I want to use a different font, that's fine. This kind of trying to move these around to make make him look good. So the same. Follow us. You can either copy it from appear, which I'm gonna go ahead and do, and I'm gonna slide it to him. So here, just for time, Say, Okay, guys. And I'm gonna change the fonts of white because now we have a new image, okay? And I'm just gonna, you know, slide that down to the side so that people can follow Okay. In bam, we have to flower. So which one do you guys like best? You like the first fly. The second flyer. Don't hurt my feelings and say nine. No, thanks. I'm just say what you want, but Flyer one or two. Which one you guys like? 5. Free Image Sites: I want to share some sites with you that I go to for free images. We're just going to go over them really quickly, and then I won't enlarge so you can see it. Our sites for free images that I want to share with you guys. And I'm gonna be sending you this document. My first favorite is unflashy dot com. Okay. It's when I use for a lot of my free spree images. They have awesome images, so check that out. Okay?

And then my last one that I like to use I'm gonna copy down one more time is going to be create her stock. So this here what you're looking at, guys is a flat note. It is a poster that I used. Okay, I use a poster. Ah, lot of times when I'm in designing images for Pinterest, I will use posters, and this is a great way to put information. And you can select from the layout so you can see I scrolled down. And I selected this particular layout right here. Where says 30 ways to say thanks. And I added another block by copying it down. And I'm just putting information here and what I'm gonna do, Guys, let's make these legs clickable the way that you do that. I'm just gonna highlight my first word, which is unflashy dot com. I'm going to go to this link here, OK? And I'm gonna click link, and then I'm just going Teoh, you know, typing in where I could have probably, you know, copied and pasted it that they're okay. So I'm making a slash, not calm. Clickable. I'm going to make picks. Obey, clickable. Let me do this the easy way by copying it and then pacing it here and applying it. Now, when you make these clickable, they have to be in a separate text box. You see how I copied each one down Instead of keeping on writing? I made a new box for each one, which is gonna make these clickable for you guys. I'm gonna go in and type and peck souls that calm apply from to do that the same thing for free picked up calm. Go in. Free pick dot com in the last one I'm going to do is create her stock dot com. So when I make this one clickable, create her stock dot com. Now, how are you guys? I know you might be wondering. Ok, so it's clickable now. So how is my customer? My client or whoever I'm making this for gonna be able to click it. Wow. When you go to download the document, it's your file type. Okay?

And put it on social media where you want to put it, and it's really, really cool to kind of draw attention to your image. And they have different styles that you can do here. Okay. So I'm not gonna and it doesn't do it for all images. They only have certain images that it works for, but most evident works for Okay, I'm not gonna use that.

I stopped, um, because all of the revisions that I was giving him over and over and over again, um, you know, and have to go back and forth about logos. It was no fun for May. So I started designing my own using Camba. Um, so you just goto logo, guys. And what I want you to know is is that you have to think outside the box these air just reference points for you to start your design, but you can make it your own. And I'm literally just showing you how you can literally make anything you want. Like, for instance, this is I can turn this my favorite color. Guys, I can make this pink. I can go into backgrounds. Let's say they have all kinds of backgrounds either silent colors or, um, you know, they had patterns and stuff like that. I can put something in my background if I want. So what I select might not make much sense, but I just want to give you an example. Let's just say, I want this in my background. I can do that. I can do whatever I want. I don't have to stick with what they're giving me. I don't have to. I can't even put a paintbrush is say that I'm a painter, Osama artist. I could go into icons where I could just go here and I could just say paintbrush. One of that's two or one word right now, but I can I can say paintbrush, and I just want to I call in to go with my my logo. I can do that, guys, I can put this in.

You can do whatever you want, and when you save it, you can save a transparent. What I like to do with my logo's is I like to do them in different colors because different backgrounds, you're gonna need different things for us. I'll just copy it and then I'll try different things. I'll say, Okay, let's just say I have to put it on a different background. I might want this to be, you know, blue Instead. You know that to be wide, I might want to change the brush, you know, to be pink, you know, or something or something like that. I might want these words here to be pink, you know, And you can just do different ones.

You want to look for where you can put circles when your images. You can also add circles when your images, by searching for friends and let me show you that. So I'm gonna swear what I do. I make it easy on myself. I just go down and look for one with a circle. But that's just me. I just make it easy for myself. So Bam, let's say I'm having a show when I'm having a guess. But just remember, you can look for this yourself. If you want to use another image by typing in a circle friend, these give you frames that you can slide in where you can slide people's pictures ends. You can do your own as well.
