4 Canva Hacks to Elevate Your Attorney Marketing

Running an elder law practice is already a demanding job, and you probably didn’t expect “graphic designer” to be added to your list of roles. 

But in today’s digital age, visuals are a crucial part of attorney marketing and branding. That’s where Canva comes in—this intuitive graphic design platform has democratized design for individuals at all skill levels. 

In this blog, we’re sharing four Canva hacks specifically tailored to make lawyer marketing both eye-catching and effortless.

1. Use Brand Kit for Consistency

Canva offers a Brand Kit feature where you can save your brand colors, fonts, and logos. This ensures you maintain consistent branding across all your marketing materials. 

It’s especially helpful when you’re rushing to create a new design but want to make sure it aligns with your brand’s aesthetic.

2. Elevate Your Logo: Take Creative Liberties 

Traditionally, you might upload your logos in the “Logo” tab. But did you know that using the “Uploads” tab can provide more flexibility? 

By uploading your logo here, you can apply creative shadow effects like “glow” or “drop shadow” to make it pop. 

Once uploaded, you’re free to adjust your logo and incorporate additional elements, just as you would with a regular photo in Canva. This extra layer of creativity can add a professional touch to your elder law practice’s website and social media channels.

3. Lock Elements in Place

If you have a design with multiple layers, it can be frustrating to accidentally move an element while trying to work on another. The lock feature allows you to lock certain elements in place so you can work around them without disturbing their position.

To use the lock feature, right-click on the element and select lock. If you want to lock multiple elements together, hold the shift key when selecting. Then right-click, and select lock.

4. Take Advantage of Templates 

Canva has a multitude of templates specifically for social media posts, presentations, and more. Templates give you a pre-designed, customizable structure that can save you both time and effort. Plus, they are usually designed following best practices in graphic design, which means you start with something that’s already visually appealing and effective in communication.

Canva also has industry-specific templates, some of which are geared towards the legal industry. By leveraging the power of templates, not only do you save valuable time, but you also give your attorney marketing materials a polished, professional look. You’ll still want to do some customization to ensure that the style fits your law firm’s personality, but templates are a great way to start.
