Introduction to Enza, Canva's Brand Designer

Allow us to introduce Enza, our talented brand designer at Canva. With over 15 years of experience in the industry, Enza brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our design community. In this workshop, Enza will be providing design makeovers for submissions from our community members, offering valuable insights and tips on design principles, color contrast, consistency, and logo practicality.

Design Makeovers of Submissions from the Canva Community

Enza will be reviewing and providing makeovers for designs submitted by our community members. These designs include Alvin's logo redesign, Nitty's brochure cover design, and Lisa's business card design. By analyzing these designs and offering improvements, Enza aims to demonstrate design principles and how they can be applied effectively to enhance design aesthetics.

Alvin's Logo Redesign

Alvin has submitted a logo design for a local company based in Singapore. Enza commends Alvin for his effort and acknowledges the improvement made in the logo design. However, she suggests focusing on three areas for further enhancement: contrast, consistency, and logo practicality. By addressing these aspects, Enza aims to create a logo that is visually appealing, readable, and versatile for various applications.

Contrast

Enza begins by addressing the issue of contrast in Alvin's logo design. As the logo is currently placed on an orange background, it can be challenging to read. To improve the contrast, Enza suggests selecting a color from within the illustration itself, such as a greenish shade, to make the logo stand out against the white background. By ensuring sufficient color contrast, the logo will be more legible and visually appealing.

Consistency

In addition to addressing contrast, Enza focuses on achieving consistency in the design. She suggests using repetition and consistency in the color palette and typography to create a unified and cohesive look. By ensuring that all design elements belong to the same family and feel connected, the overall design will appear more polished and professional.

Logo Practicality

Finally, Enza discusses the importance of logo practicality. She examines the versatility of the logo design and evaluates its usability in different formats, such as on t-shirts or small items like pens. Enza recommends creating multiple versions of the logo to cater to different uses and sizes. She demonstrates the process of transforming the logo for various formats, such as creating a one-color version and a black version. This approach ensures that the logo remains flexible and adaptable for different applications.
