Templates that adapt to your needs

Your video and the story you want to tell is unique, and with Canva you can customize your storyboard as much (or as little!) as you like. You can add headers, subheadings and body text with a simple click and easily choose your font type and color.

Is there something important that needs to stand out? Draw attention to it through bolding, underlining and italicizing. Use our library of icons and illustrations to highlight movement.

Collaborate with your team

Sometimes the best ideas are born from a group effort, so if you’re co-managing a project or even working on it as a group, you can simply click the share button to collaborate. Did you work on the sketches and did someone else work on the script? Why not share your storyboard design with them and get them to help you complete it? You can share and grant editing access within seconds. Once your storyboard is complete, share it with the rest of your team via email or download it as a print-ready PDF file.
