Summary: Create a flyer using Canva (Overview Slide)

Overview & Task

For this individual task, you will create a flyer (8.5x11ish) using Canva that showcases something personal and meaningful to you. Your goal is to tell a visual story – a piece that your instructor can review and understand without any additional backstory. You must include a minimum of 3 photos and use no more than two fonts. The length of copy will vary depending on your focus.  Here are a few ideas as a focus for your flyer:

  • “My semester highlights” with images and text showcasing events, activities, or memories from fall 2019
  • “Holiday madness” with images and text highlighting your recent break
  • “My crazy roommates (or friends, significant other, sibling, or family)” with images and text that highlight the story, fun, joy, nuttiness of the relationship
  • “My favorite charity” with images and text that outlines why you are passionate about the charity, nonprofit or cause
  • “I love sports” featuring images and text about your favorite athletic team(s)
  • Other ideas? Feel free to have fun with it!
