Which is the best tool?
We’ll update this article with a full breakdown and comparison of the various aspects of the two online design tools, but for now based factors such as overall value for money, ease of use, template library, and more we’d recommend investing your time and money into Canva.
As an all round online graphic design software Canva is ahead of Venngage currently. It simply has a lot more to offer when it comes to their template range, video creation, social media content, additional features, and third party integrations that make it so easy to create stunning designs.
As a student, teacher, or educator, Venngage is a great tool as it allows you to create really detailed infographics, presentations, and posters. It’s very easy and intuitive, particularly when it comes to creating those types of designs.
However, you can only create and share five designs on Venngage for free, and you can’t download any designs for free. So, with that in mind along with the previously mentioned reasons, we would certainly recommend Canva ahead of Venngage at the moment.
What are Canva and Venngage?
Canva and Venngage are both online graphic design tools that allow you to create designs and videos. Both are incredibly easy to use, so whatever your previous design experience should be able to access either tool and get up and running very quickly.
Both products allow you to create designs from a blank canvas or utilize their range of pre-made templates that cover a broad range of categories (although Canva’s offering is a lot bigger at the moment).
Venngage initially launched primarily as an infographic maker and this remains one of their strongest areas (although they have plenty to offer in other areas too) whilst Canva is an all round design tool suitable for hobbyist designers all the way up to business users.
Here are some of the main template categories available on both tools:
|Posters / Flyers
Canva and Venngage both offer plenty of great-looking predesigned templates in similar categories. However, as you can see Canva has a lot more templates on offer in every category. If you want a plethora of choices when it comes to templates, Canva is the best option.
Canva also has plenty of template categories that aren’t currently covered on Venngage:
