Canva problems: DIYin’ it ain’t easy.

Designing marketing materials can be a big task, especially when you’re not a professional designer. If you’re DIYin’ it then you got Canva problems even if you don’t know it.

Platforms like Canva and Adobe Express have opened up a world of possibilities for non-designers, allowing them to create nice visuals for their marketing needs. But it’s not always smooth sailing. Let’s dive into the challenges faced by DIY designers and discover a practical middle ground that combines the simplicity of Canva with expert guidance and support.

Don’t lose what makes you special

Let’s be honest, you started your business to offer your very own products and services your very own way to your very own customers with your very own style. While a professional designer will start from scratch and create something new, that takes a lot of creativity, experience, and training. So most folks using apps end up choosing a template.

Choosing alone can be a bit much but worse than that, in the end, you’re using something that thousands of others have also chosen. Maintaining brand consistency across various marketing materials is vital but jumping from template to template can make that  tough even when you load up your colours and fonts and brand assets first. This is why many DIYers often struggle to keep a uniform look and feel in their designs. The last thing you want is to go from unique and special to a disjointed and unoriginal brand image.

Design expertise matters

Without a background in design, it’s challenging to understand the nuances of visual hierarchy, color theory, and typography. This lack of expertise can lead to designs that, while aesthetically pleasing, might not effectively communicate the intended message or capture the target audience’s attention.
