Canva, the company that has the wonderful idea of democratizing design, just announced the launch of the Canva layout marketplace to serve as a venue for designers to earn from their passion. The service, which will cater to Canva’s over 1 Million users, allows people to sell layouts for people to use in their designs.
Designers can also upload their own photos, vectors, and illustrations, and offer them for sale in Canva’s library.
Melanie Perkins, Canva’s CEO, launched the service at the first Canva Design conference, right here in Manila.
“We’re excited to work with the world’s best graphic designers to empower the rest of the world to create beautiful graphics. Traditionally designers have only been able to sell their stock layouts to other people who have access to the professional design tools. However with Canva, they can now design layouts for everyone to use.”
At the event, Perkins was also very careful to make sure that the marketplace would completely respect designers’ rights to their work, and be a great venue for earning from every image and layout that other users choose to use.
If you have a great design idea that you can’t quite get out of your head and into the world, Canva is a great place to start. head over to www.canva.com and get it out there.
