What is Canva?yuhanne.com

Canva is a tool that allows you to make designs for web or print. Its not like those complicated design software we used to know. yuhanne.com

Canva is easy to use. It has a drag-and-drop feature that instantly saves you time so you can spend more time creating. And it has fewer buttons and menu options. yuhanne.com

It has everything you need for that awesome design such as stunning images, professionally shot photos, icons, filters and fonts. It provides you with pre-designed customizable layouts if you dont know where to start.
