Posters need to communicate many things all at once—your name, your party, your tagline and your identity to be truly effective. A quick way of ensuring that people get important information at a glance is to use images. Use your own photo to get recognized and add in your party’s symbol or logo to broadcast your affiliation.
Canva allows you to upload your own photos from your computer and use it in any of your Canva designs. Once uploaded, you can simply drag and drop it where you need it to go. Want to complement your photos with more images? You won’t need to look outside of Canva because you’ve already got access to an amazing media library containing over a million images, icons, vectors and illustrations.
When designing for a task as important and result-oriented as an election campaign, it’s always a good idea to get opinions. Canva allows you to share your design with your running mates or clients, enabling them to make changes in the best interest of the candidate/party. This can be done simply by clicking the share button while checking the ‘Can edit’ box. Go ahead, collaborate & create great designs!
Designing an effective election campaign poster is just one half of the equation. Now that you’ve got the perfect poster, it’s time to show it off to everyone, especially to the voters you want to impress. Whether you choose to share your poster online, print and post them in key locations, or both, you can be sure that a Canva design will look as good in paper as it does on screen.
To print your poster, simply click the Download button and choose the PDF-Print option. This will save your design as a high-resolution file with the best print quality. Posting on social media can be just as quick. Use the Share button to share your new election poster on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
