Choosing your profession
We’re always glad to see a new face at Canva.
Once you sign up at Canva, a short survey pops up inviting you to select your profession or main use for Canva.
Don’t worry, no matter your profession you’ll be able to find different kinds of designs with your Canva account. For a more thorough guide to creating with Canva, you can check out our Tutorials page.
Selecting an applicable category optimizes our recommended designs to offer relevant layouts and material fit to your needs. We also use this to send articles, tutorials and design content to help you get the most out of Canva.
You’ll receive emails with links to these helpful articles and guides as seen below. Feel free to keep them in your inbox for reference.
