At its first international Canva Create (https://cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.canva.com%2Fcanva-create%2F&esheet=54014469&newsitemid=20240523849577&lan=en-US&anchor=Canva+Create&index=1&md5=448d6efc8d920add136a7ceec8dac467) event in Los Angeles today, Canva, the world’s only all-in-one visual communication platform, accelerated its focus on the enterprise, debuting the platform’s biggest overhaul in a decade alongside a range of new workplace products and services poised to redefine the way millions of people work.

“We are excited to introduce a revamped Canva experience and a suite of new products to empower every organisation to design,” said Melanie Perkins, co-founder and CEO of Canva. “As demand for visual content soars, navigating organizational complexity is more challenging than ever. We democratized the design ecosystem in our first decade and now look forward to unifying the fragmented ecosystems of design, AI, and workflow tools for every organization in our second decade.”

As visual communication becomes the status quo, Canva’s latest Visual Economy Report found 92% of business leaders now expect employees in non-design roles to possess design skills. Canva’s new products unveiled on stage at Canva Create directly address this need by putting the power of design in the hands of the 99% of employees without professional design training.

Today, Canva touts more than 185 million monthly active users and more than $2.3 billion in annualized revenue. In just over 18 months since the introduction of Canva’s workplace-focused Visual Suite (https://cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.canva.com%2Fvisual-suite%2F&esheet=54014469&newsitemid=20240523849577&lan=en-US&anchor=Canva%26%238217%3Bs+workplace-focused+Visual+Suite&index=2&md5=77a39075121e45d0a32a0b947ff6a592), more than 95 million new users have joined the platform, a figure that first took the company nearly nine years to achieve.

Already used by teams across 95% of Fortune 500 companies, the latest additions to Canva‘s workplace solutions mark a major step forward for the company’s enterprise strategy and advance its position as a leader in visual communication.

Introducing Canva Enterprise

In a world of information and workplace technology overload, visual communication has become table stakes for enhancing engagement, unlocking productivity, and scaling brands. Canva Enterprise meets this demand with a subscription offering designed for large organizations with complex security, reporting, administration, and brand management requirements.

With Canva Enterprise, large organizations can create large quantities of visual content and scale internal collaboration with ease. This offering also comes with more sophisticated admin controls and security to keep assets safe and on-brand. Canva Enterprise includes:

“Canva has become a far-reaching tool across FedEx.

New Canva UI Designed For Work

For the first time in a decade, Canva unveiled a complete redesign of its core product experience. Built to fuel creativity and productivity in the workplace, the new UI speeds up workflows and harnesses focus. Standout features include:

· Streamlined editing experience: A new contextual editing toolbar creates more space and improves focus. Fan favorites like one-click background remover and Canva’s Magic Studio AI tools are now front and center.

· A brand new, customizable homepage: Workspaces are now customizable. Users can favorite top designs, folders, and brand templates, while organizations can pin company or team-wide content to the top of the page. A powerful search interface with advanced filters allows for less time searching and more time creating.

· Simpler and faster collaboration: With easier navigation, teams can move between projects, access key assets and resources, and apply brand guidelines. Users can filter, sort, expand or hide comments to work more efficiently and collaborate with ease.

The new homepage and editing experience will be available today to the first one million users who discover the secret portal hidden in their Canva homepage. General availability will commence in August.

Tailored Tools for Every Team

Canva also introduced a range of tailored tools for every team consisting of several products, resources and templates customized for the needs of Marketing, HR, Sales, and Creative departments.

This includes Canva Work Kits, new industry-curated collections of hundreds of craft-specific templates, from presentations to documents, built to enable teams to scale their output with easy-to-access tools. Work Kits are fully customizable and, with one click, can be branded using Canva’s Brand Kit. The initial Work Kits include resources such as:

· Human Resources: Onboarding decks, company newsletters, and job advertisements

· Sales: Pitch decks, sales reports, and sales proposals

· Marketing: Campaign content calendars, social media posts and campaign reports

· Creative: Creative briefs, production request forms, and brand strategy templates

Canva also introduced Canva Courses, a new offering designed to supercharge workplace learning. Courses, evolves Canva from a traditional design platform into an end-to-end platform for content creation, collaboration and now consumption too.

Canva Courses empowers users to turn existing designs like presentations, documents, and videos into sequenced interactive courses. From employee onboarding to upskilling and development, Courses can be assigned to individuals across an organization, and progress can be managed from a central dashboard.
