What it's trying to achieve

Canva is trying to get the user to take an action and kick off their UX flow as quickly as possible wihtout getting blocked.

Why is it a good user experience?


It is perfectly aligned with the user's context on-screen.


The tooltip is minimally intrusive. It is lined up right against the relevant feature, but doesn't obstruct it at all.


The copy is super short and simple, giving just enough for the user to get started.
