Canva Create 2024: Introducing a whole new Canva

To redesign the way we work, we’re redesigning Canva itself with a suite of game-changing workplace products transforming Canva into an all-in-one platform to supercharge how your team creates, engages, and collaborates on content.

Since launching in 2013, we’ve been working towards our mission of empowering the world to design. Today, we’re incredibly proud to have more than 185 million people unlocking creativity and achieving goals with Canva each month.

As we celebrate the end of our first decade, we’re entering the next one focused not only on empowering every individual to design, but on empowering every organization too. Today marks a momentous step in this journey as we take to the stage at Canva Create(opens in a new tab or window) in Los Angeles to unveil a whole new Canva, designed for work.

From a completely redesigned editing experience to a new enterprise offering, a range of new products for every part of the workplace and upgrades to the features you already know and love, today’s launches mark an important step forward in our mission to truly empower the whole world to design. Let’s take a look.

Introducing a whole new Canva, designed for work

We’re excited to unveil the biggest upgrade to our editing experience in a decade with the launch of a whole new editor designed for work. Rolling out from today, our brand-new homepage and powerful editing experience puts content at your fingertips, making it easy to seamlessly move between projects, access team resources, locate and apply brand guidelines, and share and collaborate on designs across your organization.

The new editing experience will be available to the first one million users who discover the secret portal hidden in their Canva homepage, before becoming available to the entire Canva community from August. Here’s what’s included:

Streamline your design flow

Launch straight into designing from the homepage with intuitive shortcuts, powerful search and filters, and your favorite templates. Your creativity can flow with a streamlined editing experience that puts your most-used features right where you need them, and you’ll experience more focus with an interface that gives you more space to create. Our new quick action toolbar also provides even faster access to some of our most popular features including one-click background remover.

Customize your workspace

You can also set up your space just the way you like it. Star your most important designs, folders, or templates so you can always find what you need as you move throughout Canva. Teams can also now easily share and access important designs, resources, and news through our new “Starred for Team” sidebar, which allows team admins and brand designers to highlight important content like the latest company newsletter or team documents.

Supercharge collaboration

With streamlined commenting, expand or hide comments to improve focus while also filtering and sorting through comments for better, more efficient collaboration. Plus, never miss an update on your projects and designs with notifications right on your sidebar.

Introducing Canva Enterprise

As visual communication becomes essential, every kind of team, industry, and organization needs to create more visual content than ever before. At the same time, organizational complexity has never been harder.

To meet the growing demand and unique needs of large organizations, we’ve spent the last couple of years partnering closely with business leaders, IT departments, and professionals across the globe to craft our newest solution that’s built with all your organizational needs in mind: Canva Enterprise(opens in a new tab or window).

Canva Enterprise includes a centralized admin console for managing teams and permissions in one place, the ability to create multiple teams across an organization to segment brands, enterprise-level security features including ISO, SCIM, and SSO to keep your organization safe, plus dedicated support for design, onboarding, training, and the development of custom integrations.

Canva is already used across many organizations – and probably yours, too. To find out how Canva is being used within your organization, and how you can consolidate that usage, click here(opens in a new tab or window) to request a custom report.

Design, scale and supercharge workplace learning with Courses

While Canva has mostly been known for external communication, from today, we’re introducing a range of tools for internal communication too, starting with Canva Courses, our latest offering designed to upgrade workplace learning. As well as creating your content in Canva, now you can engage and interact with content in Canva, too.

With Courses, you can turn Canva designs into interactive and engaging learning material by formatting it as a sequenced set of lessons your team can explore at their own pace. You can also assign courses and track everyone’s progress from a central dashboard.

The result? Visually engaging, interactive, custom courses your team will love for everything from personalized employee onboarding to sharing company updates and training, or materials tailored to help support growth and development.

Canva Work Kits to supercharge new projects

Our latest offering, Canva Work Kits(opens in a new tab or window), is a collection of specialized templates and resources tailored to specific professions to provide inspiration and help kickstart your projects.

Featuring best-in-class templates and resources, we’re launching four Canva Work Kits to help you effortlessly unlock productivity and scale creativity. From today, we’re introducing Canva Work Kits for Sales(opens in a new tab or window), Marketing(opens in a new tab or window), HR(opens in a new tab or window) and Creative(opens in a new tab or window) teams which are available from the Canva Marketplace.

Bulk create custom and personalized designs

Making multiple versions of the same design that only require small tweaks would normally be a manual and tedious effort. Now, you can speed up your marketing workflow with Bulk create. By uploading a CSV or Excel file you can quickly update images, text, and graphics across various designs in just a few clicks, saving you hours of time. Easily create multiple versions of your design – think hundreds of custom business cards, event promotional posts, or localizing campaigns at a larger scale without having to edit individual assets manually.

Scale end-to-end marketing campaigns with Ad Tech integrations

Forget starting from scratch, multiple platforms, or any guesswork around creating effective ads. From designing your creative to optimizing for better performance, you can now move through the Google, Meta, and Amazon ads creation process seamlessly without leaving Canva. Access ready-made templates and get tailored suggestions straight from your partner apps to refine your creative before submission, and get the perfect ads live in record time.

Unlock productivity with supercharged Docs and suggested editing

Our visual Canva Docs(opens in a new tab or window) have had a number of upgrades to help you work more seamlessly. For starters, we’re supercharging the editing experience with the highly-requested launch of suggested editing for effective real-time collaboration, document outlines for navigating and signposting larger documents, and a new organized commenting experience for easier collaboration. Whether you're capturing meeting notes or suggesting changes to a campaign, creating and collaborating on the perfect document is now seamless.

To take the visual document experience one step further, we’re also introducing new ways to amplify your message and make it visually engaging by adding any type of media, graphics, or Canva design to your doc – no more boring walls of text! Capture attention with animated banners and data visualizations, or add colored text blocks to highlight important content. With columns and page breaks, you also have more freedom to structure information effectively.

Now, you can also “star” and organize important docs so you and your team can easily access them, centralize, and manage all your content in one place, empowering everyone with the information they need at work.

Save time and unlock efficiency with Data autofill

Adding your latest and most accurate data to your designs used to require manual checking and constant updating, using multiple platforms. Now, creating data-driven sales materials, presentations, reports and more just became effortless with Data autofill.

In just a single click, you can drive data to any Canva design. Automate the creation of assets that integrate your business data from sources such as Salesforce and MLS (Multiple Listing Software): just match your data source with the corresponding data fields in your design, and let Data autofill update them directly in Canva. No more outdated decks or incorrect brochures!

Be pitch-perfect with Recordings

We can’t always be there to share materials in person, but now you can add the human touch to customer or employee resources with perfectly delivered Recordings. From engaging sales pitches to welcome presentations for new hires, you can now narrate a presentation or video, record your entire screen, or add voiceovers to your designs to bring them to life.

Introducing custom Apps and Integrations

Canva’s Apps Marketplace now integrates with more popular workplace tools to streamline workflows for even greater productivity. Marketing, Sales, HR, and Creative teams can now connect with a curated collection of apps, like Asana, Monday, Sharepoint, Later, Frontify, HubSpot, OpenRep, Brand Folder, Bynder, and Acquia (Widen). If your desired app or integration doesn’t exist, you can now build your own through the Canva Developers platform(opens in a new tab or window).
