Create Jazz poster design in Canva

Creating photoshop designs in Canva is the ultimate part of my canva design journey. I have tried creating many photoshop designs in Canva. This practice always helps me explore various design features and elements in this platform.

Recently I have created one poster design for the Jazz music concert. All the elements used in this design are available in Canva for free or under a pro subscription. If you are not using canva pro then let me suggest you try their 30 days free trial to explore this design platform deeply.

Only one element, “Sunrays” was downloaded from pngtree.com. I would also recommend this site to all of you for free png elements. The best part of this site is that any two elements can be downloaded for free daily.

Download all the used elements of this design below.

How to create double exposure design effects in Canva ?

How to create double exposure design effects in Canva ?

The double exposure effect is a design technique that can be achieved by merging two images with the adjustment in opacity and other design features. Almost a year ago, I have created one design using canva letter frames and called it a double exposure effect. In this design, I had kept a portion of my images inside frames and a small portion outside to give it a merged look. You can view the complete tutorial for this design here.

Recently I have read a blog on canva about how to create magically surreal photographs using

double exposure and learned how can we achieve it in Canva. I would suggest everyone read this blog to learn more about double exposure.


By using this method, I have created a couple of designs and shared a tutorial video on my youtube
channel. Below are some simple steps that I used to create these designs. 

Step 1) Use any photo preferably with a side pose and remove the background.

Step 2) Add any scenic photo behind your slide and adjust the area that you want to see within your main object.

Step 3) Reduce the transparency of your photo (main object), keep around 65 to 70 but it depends where it looks better...

Step 4) Apply shadow (Glow effect) on your photo to give it a more authentic look.

Step 5) Apply adjustment on your main object, play mainly with brightness, contrast, saturation, highlights, and warm effects. This step is very important. 

Step 6) Reduce transparency of your background slide. Its value depends on where it will look better.

Step 7) Download your design as PNG, upload again, and remove the background. You can again apply adjustment on your photo if necessary. Add some kind of color or texture in the background to pop up your design.

Canva allows you to upload any font and then use it according to your need. I have been using Urdu font for many of my projects for a long time in canva.

How to upload and use Urdu fonts in Canva?

There are many websites where you can download Urdu fonts. I mainly use urdufonts.net for this purpose. You can find many excellent Urdu fonts on this website.

Step 1 – Download your desired font. This would be a zip file. Right-click on it and apply “Extract files”. You will see one .ttf file. This is the file that you need to upload in canva.

Step 3 – Now you need to write the Urdu text and import it into canva. It is just copy-paste work. You can use any external website or keyboard to write Urdu text and then copy/ paste it in canva. After that, you can apply your uploaded Urdu font to this text. You can also use any text effect for your text.

I use easynepalityping.com/type-urdu to write Urdu text. It provides an easy method to write your Urdu text from roman English. It will convert it into Urdu immediately. It will also give you different options to select the best words for your need.

See the below slides for your quick reference. Above shared method can also be used to upload any other font style in canva like Hindi or Bengali etc.
