“Amnesty works in real time,” Jessie explains. “We have to act fast. Graphic content often needs to be turned around in just minutes – so the templates available through Canva Pro are great for that.”
The Australian team shares their Canva Pro templates. When Amnesty receives word of an execution, unfair trial, exposed war crimes or gross miscarriages of social justice – their yellow and black Brand Kit is ready to go. These iconic colours are already set as the default design elements in Canva Pro.
With such a recognisable online brand, consistency across social platforms is crucial. As well as Amnesty International Australia’s national channels (which reach up to 20 million people a month), there are Action Centres in each state. These coordinate hundreds of localised Action Groups – creating some online branding confusion. Jessie has been using Canva Pro to standardise the profile pictures of all these various offshoots.
«Det kunne fort blitt et mareritt å lage og distribuere disse nye profilbildene sentralt til hundrevis av kontoer (samt holde dem oppdatert i fremtiden), men en enkel Canva-mal – som aktivister kan oppdatere selv – gjorde det superenkelt.»
As a grassroots organisation, it’s essential for Amnesty to empower all members in creating their own content. With resources stretched thin, Canva Pro helps Jessie share the workload for campaigns nationwide.
«Jeg er veldig takknemlig for at Canva driver et program for ideelle organisasjoner som gir organisasjoner som Amnesty – hvor kostnaden så ofte er et hinder – tilgang til dette fantastiske verktøyet!»
