Since launch in April 2013 we have grown exponentially, amassing over 10 million users across 190 different countries who have created more than 300 million designs. We are one of the world’s fastest growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we are capable of!

Our web designers create all of Canva’s public facing sites – from enormous blog projects like our Learn platform to our beautiful Help Centre. We also build great tools to help people in their design process, like a photo editor, a colour palette generator and a font combinations generator used by thousands every day. We’re helping create the community, inspiration and support that grows our core Canva product.
