Month: December 2015


Every now and then I come across a really useful app but this one has become a firm favourite – for desktop and iPad!

Canva is a design website and I have come to use it for all manner of work:

  • Front covers and charts for documents
  • Teaching sessions
  • Web content such as page banners and link buttons
  • Social media posts and cover pages
  • Presentations of my research ideas
  • Brain-storming when I get stuck on any ideas (I find pictures really help)
  • Supporting a small business to develop a feedback form

I have popped together a quick Canva presentation (Canva: An Introduction for Academics) of what it is and how it can be used and this can be seen on Canva.

Some examples of my Canva creations:
