You can create free graphics online in less than ten minutes using Canva. Canva is a free site to create graphics. You can design almost anything. Logos, Instagram Stories, Posters, you name it!

1. Create a free account
You can use your email. Or you can connect with Facebook or Google. Then you’ll need to create a password. Canva is free to use, but it does have some paid features.
2. Decide what you want to design
Canva has lots of options for different types of graphics. Let’s design a blog graphic for this post
3. Start from scratch or select a pre-made template
On Canva you can start from scratch and add your own background and photos, or you can use and customize a premade template. I normally like to start with a premade template and change some things. Try not to use the first graphic you see, unless you just love it. Depending on what the theme of your graphic is, you can search for something related to your topic. For example, I wanted something artsy so I searched for “Blog Graphic paintbrush”.
4. Customize the graphic
For this graphic, I just decided to change the wording. The great thing about Canva is that it is pretty intuitive. You can change the font, the color, and the size of the text. You can also upload your own pictures and graphics.
