The Scottish Drugs Forum is a nonprofit resource of expertise on drug issues. The Scottish charity raises international awareness, supports recovery services and consults with policy makers. Andy Coffey is SDF’s Digital Communications Officer. It’s a flexible role, encompassing PR, social media management, content strategy and digital marketing. Andy’s tasked with keeping SDF stakeholders updated with their activity in the field, as well as raising engagement around the world.
“As a charity, our resources are always under pressure to be used as effectively as possible,” Andy says. “Previous to Canva, if a professional logo, poster or report cover was required, then an external Graphic Designer was recruited.”
With Canva, all of SDF’s design needs can now be executed in house. This means minimal effort and minimum cost. Andy has been using Canva for several months. It swiftly replaced GIMP as his go-to publishing platform, thanks to intuitive drag-and-drop usability. Without formal design training, Andy can easily output professional graphics.
