About the Product Design team

One of the principles of our design team is to ‘show the future’. As designers we transport the rest of the company into a future we are yet to build. A big part of the role of a product designer at Canva is to be a visionary—visualising and reinventing the future of design.

Product designers at Canva take the dream and make it something everyone can relate to and rally behind. We start from the very early stages: finding the right problem to tackle, exploring ideas for how to solve it and then refining it into a coherent solution. Our product designers carry out research, brainstorming, sketching, prototyping, and collaboration with our engineers to ship great products. We are empathetic user advocates and respect our users’ opinions through interviews, usability testing, and data analysis, as well as wireframing, flowcharting, and journey mapping to show the different stages that customers go through as they come into contact with Canva.

About the Video Group

Video group's vision is to be the go-to video playground for everyone. We make it easy but powerful tools for anyone to create any playable format.

The video editor team pushes the boundaries of video creation through simplifying the complexities that come with tradition video editing, led by research. Working collaboratively to build an inspiring vision, we reimagine how users can unleash their full creativity through dynamic content in a way that feels fun and playful.
