Design from a blank template
Creating a design in Canva often involves choosing from our premade templates. However, you’re free to create your own designs without using a template. This gives you the freedom to explore your own design ideas.
To create your own template:
- Search for any document type from the homepage search bar or use a custom dimension. This will open the editor with a blank page.
- Start building your design by adding a background color or photo. This helps set the tone for your design and helps pull all the other elements together.
- Add text elements.
- Add photos and visual elements. You can either upload your own photos or use any elements from our media library.
