Comments from some of those who selected Canva as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2016

“This is the BEST tool for any graphic.  It’s my ‘go to’ tool because let’s face it, I’m not a designer and it’s all there for you to just go wild and create something.  True designers would be horrified with this but hey, it does the job when you don’t have time nor money to create very quick and simple graphics.” Helen Blunden, Consultant, Australia

“very easy to use design area. for beautiful on the spot quick design of marketing and visuals.” Evert-Jan Ilbrink, Netherlands

“create great infographics to explain complex concepts” e-learning developer, USA
