We've recently rebranded from Haute Chocolate to Haute Stock. New name, same beautiful images.
Hey hautie, in case you missed our recent design tips and video tutorials, we've put them in one easy spot for you to refer to. If you need inspo for creative ways to use your stock photos, want to know how to add a gradient to your image in Canva, or need a quick typography refresh, scroll down to find out how!
In this first post, we discussed 7 creative ways to use mockups, flatlays and other types of styled stock to customize and personalize your current brand styling. We used some examples created by our Haute Stock (formerly, Haute Chocolate) members, and some of our own made in Canva, to show you the different ways you can utilize your styled stock images to create interesting and eye-catching graphics.
We want to help you create customized images that match YOUR brand's style. This new Canva 101 Tutorial shows you how to use Color Overlays, Filters and Gradients to create SIX different graphics using the SAME styled stock image; how haute is that?
Typography got you confused? Design Expert, LeAnna shared her tried and true methods for choosing the right typeface for branded graphics. While it might sound simple, even the most experienced designers need to spend time mixing and matching different fonts and typefaces to obtain the desired effect.
In addition to the video tutorial, we have a FREE style guide download for you to use as a reference. Scroll to the bottom of that blog post to get it!
