“I used to be one of the executive chefs of one of the hotels in Makati but due to [the] pandemic, most of the hotels and restaurants were unstable so I decided [to] start my own business.
I was not very familiar with digital art but with the help of Canva, our team was able to create our logo, flyers, greeting cards, menu lists, and tarpaulin for our outreach program that we organize every month.”

“Canva helped us with the branding of our passion project – CandleCuddle.PH. Branding is very important, especially for small enterprises, since we need to introduce the business.
Sobrang laki ng naitulong ni Canva from our marketing collaterals, teaser videos, and even our candle labels and cards. Lahat gawa sa Canva, not to mention our paper bags and packaging! Bakit namin napili si Canva? Because we can have so many templates, fonts, and even free audio and videos. Very user-friendly and reliable. You can even edit using your mobile phone!”

“Sa panahon na malaking challenge ang pandemic sa mga MSMEs, naging tulay ang Canva para ma-boost ang aming social media marketing. Nagkaroon kami ng freedom to express and to represent our brand through useful tools in Canva.
Thank you Canva for being there since day 1. I was able to boost my sales and get to be known by national TV just by posting my pubmats, made in Canva!”

“Bago kami mag-start ng business one year ago, iniisip na namin kung paano namin ma-e-engage ang aming magiging customers. Doon namin natuklasan si Canva.
Hindi ako graphic designer or marketer, pero dahil sa Canva, na-e-engage namin ang mga customers namin dahil sa mga templates na available para sa mga negosyante tulad ko na sobrang busy sa business nila. From business cards, flyers, posters, signage, Facebook at Instagram posts, kaya sa Canva!
Hindi ko inakala na dadami pa yung orders namin ng Premium Buko Pie at Pasalubong sa Platefuly. Buti na lang natutunan naming gumamit ng Canva at maging mas active pa sa social media.
Naka-subscribe na kami every year at mukhang itutuloy pa namin dahil madaling gamitin, maraming pagpipilian na design, at affordable pa. Recommended ‘to sa mga negosyanteng nagsisimula pa lang at sa mga negosyanteng gusto pang gumawa ng engaging materials online para palaguin ang kanilang business.”

“It was 2017 when I started using Canva and, for a person who is unfamiliar with Photoshop but wants to have an awesome layout, Canva made it possible. Because of Canva’s ready-to-edit templates, it became my guide, and eventually, I was able to create my own designs.
Canva really helped me throughout the years. It helped with my work, my in-house business, and now to my first baby: COF Greenhills MNL. I was able to create my logo, menu, and social media announcements. With Canva, I could showcase my design skills and make my business look eye-catching and professional. I even had the chance to conduct several workshops on how to use Canva and maximize it for business.
Canva not only helped me develop my skills and my business; it also boosted my confidence.”

“Oh where do I start? I’m a printer for hotels and restaurants, so our business was really affected by the pandemic. In an instant, our sales dropped to zero as we had to shut down for 3 months. Our clients were barely surviving and could not spend on their usual paper products. It was the home cooks, home bakers, and other home entrepreneurs that saved us by ordering labels and packaging, most of them made in Canva!
At first, it was a struggle talking to them about color space, file formats, and other graphic design terms, but we made it work. Before, they would send us JPEGs with blurry text, and I couldn’t bear printing something of poor quality knowing that it could be a lot better. Eventually, we were collaborating on files. Clients make the layout while I took care of pre-press technicalities. Just what I used to do with the arts and design departments of our corporate clients. Working with creative people made me feel alive again.
I love how Canva makes a creator out of anybody. Their passion for whatever they’re doing, whether it’s food, crafts, or services, drives them to make inspired artworks for their brand. I’m not a designer but I appreciate good design. I also love producing them and delivering them to happy customers.
Our projects have since gone from simple sticker labels to flyers, posters, even to boxes. I used to turn down clients who wanted to make packaging for perfumes, soaps, etc. because I couldn’t create artwork for them. Now, I just give them the dimensions of each side of the box and they just make it themselves! No more lost opportunities with Canva. Thank you so much for the service you’re doing. So much win.”
