First of all, party foul. Who do we think we are calling you dummies?! Not cool Hughes & Co., am I right? Our blatant stepping out of line aside, we have found this awesome new tool that we mentioned in one blog post, but after some email questions we decided to do a full-on review of Canva.
What is Canva?
Basically, it is a super user friendly tool that you can use to make seriously awesome graphics for your social media, website, blog, newsletter and all of those other digital goodies that we tell you to spend time on.

Truly, it is accessible for people of all levels of web skill and it takes the guess work out of balanced and beautiful design. For example, I, Allie, am a straight up terrible designer, BUT I worked my magic on Canva and here are some sweet results:

And truly, 30 seconds is all that you need.
We know this is an unusual style of post for us, but sometimes you just have to share a secret tip that will make someone's day. Happy designing!
