What is Canva? – A Beginner’s Tutorial


Hi everyone!

What is Canva, A Beginner's Tutorial, is the very first of the many tutorials that Your Delightful VP intends to post and as such, I am so excited about how it will turn out!

Let me give you a little background about what Canva is.

The Canva journey started in 2007 when Melanie Perkins was a teacher at the University of Western Australia. She was teaching students how to use programs such as InDesign and Photoshop - tools that people found hard to learn and even harder to use.She partnered with co-founder Cliff Obrecht to build and launch Fusion Books, an online tool that made it easy for students to create their own yearbooks. Fusion Books is still going strong. It’s now the largest school yearbook publisher in Australia and has expanded into France and New Zealand.

Both Melanie and Cliff realized that more people can benefit from the technology they have developed - that it can be applied far and beyond the yearbook market, thus they knew they had to pursue this vision. After careful search, they were lucky to find Cameron Adams, a hardcore Googler. He is someone who shared Melanie's and Cliff's vision; he is now another co-founder, Canva's Chief Product Officer.

Canva has a great team of designers, developers, artists, marketers, investors, and advisors. They have come from unexpected places: some left jobs, some left their own startups, and some even cut around-the-world trips short to join the team.

Canva is a FREE design tool that is utilized and loved by millions of users around the world. It has everything that you need to make a terrific, wonderful looking design. You can create presentations, graphics and social media posters with so many workable layout variations - ones that suit your tastes and moods.
