Contributor brands

What is a Contributor brand?

Canva uses a concept of ‘brands’ in addition to user accounts. Having separate brands and usernames provides the flexibility for a single user account to manage multiple brands of content, and for multiple user accounts to manage a single brand of content. When you first become a Contributor, you start with one user account and one Contributor brand.

Setting up your user account is what happens when you register at Canva. The user account is what you use to log in to the Canva website. When you’re approved as a Canva Contributor we establish your Contributor brand to ‘house’ your content and it’s what’s visible to users in Canva. A user account cannot house content in the library. Usernames and brand names need to be mutually unique, so if you can’t change your brand name to be the name you want, check you haven’t already set it as your username.

How do I edit my Contributor brand name?

You can change both your username and your brand name in Canva.

To change your username:

  1. Go to your Account settings by clicking the dropdown in the upper left corner of the Canva home page.
  2. Proceed to the Profile tab where you can then edit your username.

To change your Contributor brand name:

  1. You first have to ensure that you are on your Contributor brand since the default setting when you log in is your Personal brand.
  2. Once you switch from Personal to Contributor brand, instead of showing a display name, your personal brand will literally be listed as “Personal” on the drop down menu.
  3. Go to your Account settings by clicking the dropdown in the upper left corner of the Canva home page.
  4. While still on the Account settings page, proceed to the Account Info tab.
  5. Scroll all the way down to Contributor brand information and edit your brand name as needed.
