Celebrating 15 billion designs in Canva

We’re proud to say our global design community has created 15 billion designs in Canva! With 15 billion stories behind them all, we’re excited to mark this milestone in our journey to empowering the world to design.

Since 2013, Canva has been empowering the world to design. Today, our community has reached a very special milestone: a whopping 15 billion published designs!

While this is a significant number for Canva, it’s so much more than that. Today, we reach this moment because of you – our thriving community who not only shines through the power of design, but also champions us every step of the way.

We've reached some incredible milestones(opens in a new tab or window) lately, but we couldn't have done it without the village of more than the 110M people worldwide who come to Canva each month to design beautiful creations. From a nonprofit in Scotland(opens in a new tab or window) to a dessert cafe in China(opens in a new tab or window), a butcher in Brooklyn(opens in a new tab or window), or a mom in Melbourne(opens in a new tab or window), Canva tools and the designs produced by them are bringing people together, even when we’re worlds apart.

We’re honored to connect a global community who inspire and empower one another to achieve their visual communication goals. Knowing your designs are part of something bigger makes us proud.

With 15 billion designs created in Canva, there’s a story behind each and every one. From unique to inspiring, impactful to ingenious, we’re constantly blown away by what you’re creating.
