Before we jump into doing the final design in Canva, let’s grab a pencil and paper and sketch our rough ideas first. Here are some few things why sketching is vital to our design process:
Tips in sketching:
It’s okay to use stick figures! It’s better to start with the basic shapes and lines because those are the simplest forms to present our ideas clearly. What’s important is that we get the message across. Worry about the details later!
Timebox yourself. Allot 15-20 mins of sketching at least 3 ideas to your design challenge. If you can think of more, that’s great! Create that sense of “rush” when you sketch so you have that energy of pouring all of your ideas.
Practice and have fun! Mastering any kind of skill does require a lot of practice but don’t forget to enjoy the process along the way. It makes the journey much lighter and more delightful.
So, are you ready with your chosen sketch idea? Let’s start designing!
Building Your Design in Canva
Here we are! We’re ready to dive in once again and create our visual design solution for our chosen Design Challenge! If you need to remember things from our previous modules, you can always go back to them through our menu panel on the left side of your screen to navigate around our course. Don’t worry, this won’t be graded! But we’ll have our usual peer feedback in the next segment to see how else we can improve our design.
