Affordances

~For those who are Internet savvy it is no secret the Canva is a pretty basic website to use.

~The website is set up for people to be able to click back and forth between the different designs and colors that they need so they can pick on that fits best.

~You can make anything unique to how to want to design it. For example; if you see a text graphic that you want to use, but the color is too harsh and contrasting to your background, you are able to play with colors until you find one that you like.

~After you create your page you can immediately post it to Facebook or twitter with the buttons on the top of the page.
