Welcome to Canva, Affinity! — Canva acquires design platform Affinity to bring professional design tools to every organization. — Empowering the world to design!

Canva, the world’s only all-in-one visual communication platform, announced the acquisition of Affinity, the award-winning creative software suite for professional photo editing, illustration, graphic design and page layout.

The acquisition significantly bolsters Canva’s vision to build the world’s most comprehensive suite of visual communication tools. While the last decade has seen rapid growth for Canva amongst the 99% of knowledge workers without design training, the integration of Affinity’s professional design software now unlocks the full spectrum of designers at every level and stage of the design journey. As visual communication becomes the status quo in teams and organizations around the world, the acquisition also accelerates Canva’s enterprise ambitions, unlocking a future where professional designers can craft designs and templates with Affinity to scale across organizations with Canva.

The Affinity and Canva Pledge:

1. We are committed to fair, transparent and affordable pricing, including the perpetual licenses that have made Affinity special.

2. We will double down on expanding Affinity’s products through continued investment in Affinity as a standalone product suite.

3. We will provide Affinity free for schools and nonprofits.

4. We are committed to listening and being led by the design community at every step in this journey.
