Overall Satisfaction with Canva

We use Canva for making graphics as a backup solution to Photoshop in our office. We also recommend it to clients who need to make graphics for social channels or blog posts and don't have any experience with more professional software. Canva is an easy solution to create pro-like graphics even when you don't have pro-like apps.


  • Easy design creation for social channels
  • Graphic production when you're on the go
  • Common needs image size presets make it easy for the beginner to intermediate user.


  • Lots of options that are paid add-ons.
  • Working in a web browser is not yet perfect.
  • Great resource for DIY clients who don't generate revenue.
  • Easy to use templates and icons for fast design reducing time spent on heftier tools.
Canva is a free tool that provides you with powerful features to use in your content marketing. It is easy enough for the DIY user and powerful enough for many pro designers. There are many use-cases where you need more powerful tools, but if you're looking for something fast, easy, and accessible, it's hard to go wrong here.
This is my go-to recommendation for beginners, solopreneurs, and small business owners who are looking to create graphics for their digital needs. Their image presets and quality assets make the learning curve inviting and it isn't weighted down with a lot of unused pro features. I also find myself using it in a pinch when I'm on a computer that doesn't have Adobe products. It isn't my main design tool, but it works like it should and is accessible on any internet connected computer.
