Officially a Canva Certified Creative – Hooray!

Super excited to announce that I’m officially a Canva Certified Creative. My box of Canva Swag has just arrived from Australia and it felt a little like Christmas has come early! Will explain a bit more about what it means to be a Canva Certified Creative, and what comes in the swag box that gets sent out.

What does it mean to be a Canva Certified Creative?

Being a Canva Certified Creative is just a fancy way of saying I’m a brand ambassador. It’s an invite-only program from Canva for people who basically promote the wonderful, cloud-based graphic design software through social media, online tutorials and/or in person via workshops like myself.

I have been delivering half day Canva workshops, specifically for nearly three years, and been mentioning Canva in other workshops since their early days in 2013. Had the pleasure of meeting its co-founders at the BlogHer conference in San Jose in 2014, so when I heard of the Certified aspect of Canva, I reached out to founder Melanie and asked what the criteria was. The rest, as they say, is history.

What Are the Benefits of Being a CCC?

That’s some of the benefits of being a Canva Certified Creative. Love the swag bag of goodies.

Well that’s all for today. The holidays are officially beginning for me as we celebrate Christmas tonight…a few days early. I’ll look forward to wearing my new Canva tshirt in the new year at my next round of Creating Killer Graphics in Canva 2.0 workshops for Business Gateway.

Kudos to Claire Duncan from Ayrshire who was the first person to ever offer a Canva BG workshop then everyone else just copied her. Her invitation to create this workshop effectively changed my life so thanks Claire.
