Why Is Canva Bad?

Last updated on September 27, 2022 @ 12:55 pm

Design tools like Canva are often lauded as being democratizing forces in the design industry. But there’s a downside to this accessibility: a proliferation of bad design.

On the internet, you can find a lot of “design advice” that is really just regurgitated marketing speak or outdated ideas. And because anyone can be a “designer” now, there are a lot of people out there who are really just winging it.

PRO TIP: Canva is a free online design platform that allows users to create professional designs for their businesses. However, there are some drawbacks to using Canva. First, the platform is very limited in terms of design options. Second, the quality of the designs is not always great, and third, it can be difficult to find the right template for your needs.

The problem with this is that bad design is everywhere. It’s on business cards and flyers, on websites and social media posts. This proliferation of bad design makes it harder for good designers to stand out.

And it’s not just that bad design is aesthetically unpleasing. It can also be harmful to businesses, as it can conveys a sense of amateurism or lack of care. In a competitive market, first impressions matter, and bad design can be a turn-off for potential customers.

So why is Canva bad Because it contributes to the problem of bad design.

By making design accessible to everyone, it has also made it easier for bad designers to proliferate. In a sea of mediocrity, it can be hard for good designers to stand out.
