Behind The Scenes of Canva for Work

If you know me, you know Canva is on of my loves.

I’m a sucker for good design and when it comes to creating gorgeous images for your brand, not tool is a better fit than Canva.

So you can imagine my delight when just 72 hours ago I got an email from Canva’s community outreach specialist letting me know I would have access to Canva for Work before it was released into the world so I could give them some feedback.

Diggin’ Into The Key Features

So what is Canva For Work anyway? Get it straight from Canva’s CEO & Co-Founder, Melanie Perkins.

Canva CEO Melanie Perkins


“Canva is extremely popular with individuals who create things like social media graphics, presentations, and business cards. It has saved them time, money, and allowed them to create graphics that look professional without needing to learn the expensive desktop design tools.
Over the past two years, we’ve found that brands often struggle to an even greater extent with the same issues. Canva for Work takes Canva to the next level, by empowering companies to share design templates, fonts and digital assets, and to collaborate on the design process.
…Canva for Work enables them to centralize all their assets, collaborate more easily, and oversee a brand’s image by providing remixable templates, images and design assets that other teams can use to create on-brand graphics.”
