Plan your project with a mockup

Design is not unlike carpentry: one should measure twice and cut once. A mockup is a design proof-of-concept; a way to show off big ideas without getting lost in the weeds with lots of finicky details. We can help you design a mockup that will get approved, get feedback, and let you get on with your project.

Build your next site by starting with a web mockup

The best websites are an elegant combination of form and function, and starting with a mockup is a great way to hammer down usability before you start counting pixels. Make your web mockup in Canva and not only will you have access to all of our easy-to-use drag and drop tools, but you can search our image library for widgets, menus, and website elements ready to use for free.

Craft mockups for your mobile app or responsive website

Why would you type even a single line of code before you know exactly what user experience you want? Save yourself time and debugging headaches by getting things right with a mobile app mockup. Not only do we have all the buttons and sliders you could ever need in our image library, but we also have frames for smartphones and tablets so you can preview exactly what your app will look like in your user’s hands.

Plan your portfolio to show off your best work

Every designer knows that printing a professional portfolio on high-quality paper is quite the expense. All the more reason to prepare a mockup! With Canva’s photo editing and layout tools, you can quickly put together a sample of your best work. Then export to PDF and print from any home printer so you can hold your portfolio draft in your hands before emptying your bank account on production copies.

Craft mockups for print and export them to PDF

Mockups aren’t just for digital projects: they’re great for working out ideas in print too. No matter what you’re designing, from business cards to party invitations, we have plenty of templates ready for you to customize. We even make it easy to finish your print project with the power to download any design as a print-ready PDF. We’ll even take care of the crop marks!
