Canva Social Media Image

This was my first experimental graphic using Canva last year. I took this photo of a friend on the California coast as she was climbing steps from the beach below. The photo has been desaturated and filtered, and I added a simple text overlay with copy that felt appropriate. I matched the shape color behind the text to the sky above, and the blue text color is matched to the darker wrinkles in her jeans. The fonts were chosen to be both casual and attention-getting. I was going for inspirational, and it inspires me!

If you’re looking for an easy do-it-yourself tool to make graphics and memes for online use, Canva is pretty awesome. They even have a whole course of tutorials to help you learn the capabilities of the tool, step by step.
