Abstract: Canva is a web-based graphic design tool that allows users to create digital and print images to customize social media pages, enhance blog posts, and create printable marketing materials. With Canva, users create layouts from scratch or start with templates, pre-loaded with thematic fonts, objects, color palettes, text boxes, and platform-specific dimensions. Users have the ability to share designs and collaborate with team members to create visually-appealing marketing materials designed to attract the attention of their target audience.
