About the group and team

Our marketplace of templates provides the perfect place for our users to begin their design journey. The Canva team wants to work with talented designers from across the world, to redefine what’s possible for a template - creating a new benchmark for fresh, high-quality design content within our collection. We're aiming to build the world’s best design marketplace, with a library of designs that offer our users a wide variety of usable and dynamic content - and to do that, we need the help of talented designers that can create amazing content.

About the project

Our template library needs a range of fresh, varied, and beautiful designs - so we’re after self-motivated designers who would love to have room for creative freedom in answering a brief in one or more of the following categories:

  • Logos
  • Instagram Posts
  • Book Covers
  • LinkedIn Banners
  • Presentations
We’re interested in engaging designers for a 2-4 week initial period, with the opportunity of extending our relationship to ongoing, regular design work. Final designs will need to be submitted in Canva - however, we’re happy for designers to use their software of choice to create elements and designs, and we will provide guidance and assistance on how to upload elements and create designs in our easy-to-use platform.
