The Huffington Post helped reinvent the way we consume our online news. The New York based organization reaches 200 million online users, across various platforms. Candy Bigwood is Mobile Art Director at HuffPost, coordinating user experience and interfaces across iOS and Android devices. Her work involves collaboration across a number of HuffPost teams. Candy explains how the office-wide workload has been streamlined since the team upgraded to Canva for Work.
“At HuffPost there’s a large global editorial staff,” Candy says. “When an editor makes a request for a layout design based on an upcoming story, it’s easy for the design team to accommodate the request within a few hours. Canva for Work has proved to be an invaluable time saver. “
Candy cites this quick ‘shareability’ as Canva for Work’s biggest drawcard. Before upgrading, the HuffPost team would discuss designs face-to-face or via internal e-blasts. With over 100 team members, this risked an internal backlog. Now everyone shares designs instantly, meaning less time wasted on the back and forth. Editorial staff and designers can share templates between their accounts. Any team member can easily work from graphics drafted by a designer.
