Start designing

Get started with design tools, guidelines, and philosophy.

Before your app can appear in Canva, it'll need to be reviewed and approved based on our design requirements. To keep the process running smoothly, before you submit your app for release, make sure your app:

  • follows our design guidelines
  • is as consistent with Canva’s UX as possible
