Canva is now the only platform bringing the whole design process together—empowering teams and workplaces regardless of size in any industry. The global visual communications site has formally announced a suite of new features for Canva Presentations, its flagship workplace product. This is aimed at helping professionals and teams achieve their goals while keeping productivity and staying on brand.
The company said it is heavily investing in its Presentations, touted as a product for workplaces across the globe. The new suite of features was designed to support an increasingly digital world as teams and workplaces adapt to a new hybrid model of work.
“Now more than ever, teams and workplaces around the world need scalable, collaborative, and easy-to-use visual communication products to empower them to achieve their goals,” said Canva Co-Founder and CEO Melanie Perkins. “The launch of Presentations gives workplaces of all sizes a unique, flexible collaboration product that makes work feel like play. I’m incredibly proud of our rapidly growing global team as we work together to empower the world to design.”
In a press release, Canva said the work suite features are backed by its powerful collaboration tools as well as its rapidly growing content library of over 9,000 professionally designed Presentation templates and over 100 million ingredients for design—including photos, videos, audio tracks, and illustrations to help commence any project.
