Types of Creators
Template Creators are primarily graphic designers.
Element Creators can be photographers, illustrators, typographers, videographers, and audio producers.
Specialty Creators know a particular niche area, e.g. Education Speciality Creators are teachers who specifically create educational resources.
Share your work around the world
Over 85 million Canva users across 190 countriescan use the templates and elements our Creators publish to the marketplace. Talk about reach!
We’re on a mission to build the world’s most diverse content library by creating templates and elements for everyone, everywhere. So, we encourage Creators to design in their language, incorporate their culture, and represent their country.
Earn an income doing what you love
If you’ve ever wanted to be your own boss or embark on a side hustle, Canva Creators could be for you. Once your templates or elements are on the marketplace, they’re available to all Canva users – seven days a week, 365 days a year. So even when you’re asleep, your work can be busy earning you a passive income.
Canva Creators have complete creative freedom – flex your creativity, try new things, and make your mark! Creators don’t have to deal with clients, deadlines, and quotas. Instead, they can focus on creating amazing designs – we’ll take care of the rest.
