Canva is your friend when creating cu content

Have you heard of Canva? It's growing by leaps and bounds and for a good reason. It makes collaboration easy and helps create beautiful content. And you can use it for free! I use it to create content for my credit union clients and collaborate on campaign ideas.


Canva is a drag-and-drop graphic design platform that allows users to create stunning visual content. It is available via browser or app. I recently used it while traveling with my Ipad Pro, and it worked beautifully.  


Canva allows you to start from scratch or with templates to organize images, text, and other graphics into a final design.  


How could you use it in your credit union? 


Website Images

Social Media Posts (images and animated) 

Videos (think banking tutorials!)


Lobby Screens


Internal Staff Guides

Statement Stuffers


Annual Meeting Content

And the list goes on.......

There are currently 3 account types: 

Canva Free: For anyone wanting to design anything, on your own or with others. No design experience required, and the company says it's free forever.

Canva Pro: For individuals wanting unlimited access to premium content, with special tools to grow your brand and projects. 

Canva for Teams: For teams of all sizes wanting to create together, with premium workplace tools and approval flows. 

Many ready-to-use templates in the platform are free; however, there is a growing collection of paid content. With the Pro version, you'll find many upgraded items for your designs to make it worth the investment.
