Hey did you notice my new Friday Faves graphic above? So remember a few weeks ago I told you about this new online graphics program called Canva? That’s a graphic I made with it. It was super easy. The background is one they include but you can change the color of it to whatever you want. Then the circle graphic is pre-made. I just changed the font colors and the fonts to what I wanted. Then I added that little banner at the bottom and added text to that too. Oh and I threw in a little arrow behind the circle for good measure. Super easy-peasy!
The program currently offers about 100 fonts but they will be adding more over time. There are over a million images you can choose from, most of them free. Others you pay $1 a piece. This one I made was created using only free elements. But you can also upload any photo or graphic you already own and use those in your graphics, so you can really get away with using the whole thing for free.
I haven’t played with it for too long, but here is another graphic I created with Canva.
FYI: Canva is only open for beta testing right now but they are slowly rolling out logins, so get on the list now before you forget! I don’t get anything from you signing up, just thought this would be a super useful tool for your blog posts!
Silverfake has been around a little while, but it’s such a cool font, I wanted to share it with you guys. It’s a contemporary slab serif display font by Alexey Frolov. It’s great for both retro and modern designs and appropriate for logos, text over photos or posters. I wouldn’t recommend it for page headings because it’s only available in capital letters and it’s also a bit too wide.
