Hi, it’s Lori Ballen with Ballen Brands.com (Lead Generation Systems) and BallenVegas.com (Las Vegas Real Estate). Today I’m going to show you how to use Canva to create a branding template for your colors and styles.
It’s very important for your brand that you have a name, and a logo and a branding board with a color scheme and style of fonts. This way you can use these over and over again in your printed material, your business cards, your postcards your websites.
Now, this requires the paid version of Canva. Canva.com has a free version and a paid version. I have the paid version which allowed me to set up branding templates which are fantastic.
So, we’re going to pick a new layout. Let’s just scroll down and find something that we like.
I have chosen a template that I’m going to use, and I want to set up my branding colors from here.
Click on something that you want to change the color.
Access the color box and here are the palettes for the brands. This is fantastic for people that have multiple brands like I do or maybe you’re doing marketing for clients. And you want to set them up in here.
So all I have to do is go to add another palette, now we’re into the palettes.
Now the other way to get to this if you’re going to set this up first is right here on your left hand on your panel here you can see here your brands option.
Here you can set up what you’re heading fonts are, what your subheading fonts are going to be, and what your regular text will be. And then you can also upload all your logos.
You can access the color codes you’ve established, if you have some, and add them to your branding area. So, you’ve hired my company Ballen Brands.com to build your real estate website. In your WordPress dashboard, click on Appearance and Customize.
Now you’re going to be able to see the colors that were used to set up your website that you might now want to use in all of your branding.
You can send your color palette to your Web Developer, whoever’s printing your or your postcards, flyers, your business card etc.
If you go to Google and type things in like color codes, branding, templates, color templates you can actually look at a whole bunch of sets of colors that look good together.
Canva actually put together a sample of color selection ideas for a brand board.
So, let’s say for example your waterfront property, you could actually look at waterfront property themes and find all the different blues and greens that go together that match in there.
And that’s a fantastic way to do that as well, lots of really cool ideas to get color sets for your design.
So, that is how you use Canva to set up the colors of your branding packages.
