Canva, a popular graphic design platform, is launching a set of new features that promise to beat the competition. These features will enhance the user experience by empowering creative designers or teams to work smarter, faster, and more efficiently. The platform’s new magical features are set to provide a burst of creative inspiration, making the creative journey more accessible and more customized than ever before.
One of the most exciting new features is Magic Design, which enables users to upload their own images and have AI generate a design that incorporates them across several templates. The AI chooses fonts and graphics to create a polished finished product that users can then edit and customize as desired. Users can even describe the presentation they want to make in a text box, and Canva AI will put together an entire outline of the presentation, including content for every slide.
Canva was made possible by the convergence of HTML5 and personal devices, which led to the democratization of design a decade ago. Now, thanks to the significant advancements in artificial intelligence, Canva is once again taking the design process to new heights. Canva has already harnessed this technology in recent launches of image generator Text to Image and copywriting assistant Magic Write.
Magic Design is a new feature that helps you visualize your design ideas, providing curated templates based on an image or a style. It is the perfect way to spark inspiration and discover templates that are uniquely yours. But Magic Design is much more than just templates. It curates a selection of ideal fonts, graphics, and styles to turn your prompts into the perfect design. You can select a style, customize it to your liking, or just add a few personal touches.
Magic Design is the ideal tool to kickstart creativity and turn your ideas into a professional Canva Presentation. You can describe your idea in a few words, and Magic Design will generate on-brand designs that include an outline and content on each slide to get you started.
Canva is introducing also another two new features, Layouts and Styles, to help users choose the proper layout and style for their work. Layouts suggest professional layout options based on your content and automatically apply them to your design when you select the best fit. Styles enable you to choose a new overall style and restyle your entire design with a single click. You can find style inspiration anywhere by matching the style of an image, another recent design, or one of Canva’s templates.
Draw is another new tool that Canva is introducing. It lets you unleash your creativity by sketching your ideas, such as diagrams, flowcharts, mind maps, and other formats. Draw a shape, and the inbuilt shape assistant recognizes it and turns it into a perfect shape. This feature is perfect for those who need to add bespoke visual elements to their designs.
Magic Write is also getting an upgrade. It is an AI-powered copywriting assistant for Canva Docs that helps to ease writer’s block and makes writing quicker by generating text based on your prompt. The feature has been extended to every type of design, from websites to presentations, videos, whiteboards, and more. Magic Write can now generate content based on existing text, expanding, summarizing, or rewriting text with just a simple prompt.
Canva’s CEO, Melanie Perkins, explained the company’s vision for the new suite of generative AI tools. “As technology continues to advance, we are reimagining the design process by making it even easier to take what is in your head, get it onto a page, and out into the world, faster than ever before,” Perkins said.
In September, Canva unlocked entirely new types of design from websites to whiteboards with the introduction of the Visual Suite. Now, they are turning their attention to how you design. The new features are some of the most innovative in Canva’s history, with the goal of making the creative journey more accessible, more customized, and more on-brand than ever before.
Canva’s new features are set to make the creative journey easier and more efficient, empowering teams to take their brand to the next level. The platform’s goal is to provide users with a burst of creative inspiration that will help them visualize their design ideas and make their work faster, easier, and a whole lot more fun. These new features are immensely fun to use and will transform the way you design forever.
