OVERVIEW

Do that same one or two persons usually lead the team when it comes to designing visuals for communication because the others are design-illiterate?

Imagine the amazing results you and your team can achieve if everyone has the ability to design and speaks the same design language?

A corporate executive and a communication designer both used design elements like colour, font, layout, shapes and many other design choices to create communication visuals. The major difference is in the way it turns out. Even with professional-looking design templates from Canva, many still turn out poorly after customization.
