How You Should Have Pay Attention to Canva

Diterbitkan pada dalam Blog.

Some partners in university have already use an app that support them in presentation, explaining their lecture materials. The told me the app name: Canva. To me, they showed up their presentations nicely. Based on that case, I think Canva is a PowerPoint-like software at first; I do not ever use it yet. But, the App Store shares differently today, then finally I know what Canva is.

I really like the articles about the developers and their development in the store on special rubric: Meet the Developer. Once a week, the Apple team telling a story based on their interview with iOS developers and his/her team—the people behind the good apps, between founder and co-founder at least.

Canva, an app for graphic design, is founded by Melanie Perkins. She is a Western University student. She is still young, 19-year-old girl. The first initiative of building Canva is all about helping her friends for a simply graphic design tool that cover many things. So, she made Canva with rich & unique features to cover to.

Actually, Canva is a simple app. With simply user interface (UI), Canva provides adaptive templates, a dozen photography designs, many font types, and some more. I think this is not only good to switch slides into beautiful designs that can attract the audience in a presentation session and support your stage performance. It is more than that. Canva accessible to everyone with various needs for sure.

One thing that I like about Perkins’ spirit when building Canva is her start humble beginning and her purpose to help individuals, businesses, and not-for-profits. Yes, really big non-profits orientation. But, she leads Canva to a unicorn (means a billion dollar-valued business/start-up company). A unicorn one from Australia. The interview closed by Perkins’ quotes.

The more goals you set and accomplish, the feeling of confidence in you ability to achieve grows, and in-turn gives you the confidence to take on more ambitious challenges.

Thank you, Perkins. Thanks for your Canva. And now, I do not think Canva for PowerPoint-like again—not only about that. Not only as one of best graphic design apps. A great one.
