Using Canva to design a logo
Logos are small, usually simple, graphics which are sometimes legally registered or established, that form part of the identity of a business.
Canva’s pre-made logo layouts and elements are used by many people, so your logo will not be exclusive to you if you don’t heavily modify the design and elements.
Non-exclusive logos cannot be trademarked. If you intend to trademark your logo, use only elements that you’ve created yourself or commissioned directly.
Logos cannot contain elements from Canva’s image library, either free or paid, as per section 4i of our license agreements. However, basic shapes, lines, free fonts and our pre-made logo layouts and the elements contained in those layouts may be used in logos. You’re also welcome to use your own elements that you upload to Canva to create your logo.
Also be aware that logos are most useful when in a vector format so that they can be scaled to any size without losing resolution. Canva doesn’t yet support exporting in any vector formats, so we recommend making your logo as large as possible and exporting in print quality PDF format (300 dpi).
