Brand Designer - Founders

About the Team

Canva’s in-house Creative Team is on a mission to make Canva the most loved brand in the world. We work from concept to creation on world-class creative across brand communications, marketing campaigns, editorial content and production.


As part of this team you’ll help create a brand that communicates our purpose, defines perception and awareness globally, and puts a spotlight on our diverse community– ensuring they receive a human, inspiring and empowering experience.


We move fast here at Canva, and this role will certainly keep you on your toes. We are looking for someone who loves to get stuff done. You’re who we want to work with if you can balance your brilliant creative streak with ruthless prioritization that moves projects rapidly along.


We believe in attracting and nurturing world-class talent with a focus on diversity, community, career development – and doing the best work of our lives.


About the Role


We are looking for a Brand Designer who can conceptualize and deliver an exceptional and consistent brand experience across our internal & external communication touchpoints. You will be a champion of communication design, acting as a Founders partner to communicate complex ideas simply and visually, with a focus on presentations. 


You will be part of the Canva Creative Studio and work in collaboration with our Founders Ops team to help evolve business communications for a wide net of audience groups, including Investors, our community, internal team and more. You will work closely with the Founders Ops team to develop thoughtful communications and consistent brand application. 


This role will require a level of flexibility across the board. Your priority will be supporting any Founders brief as the first point, however there will be down time to work on evolving our brand templates and empowering our internal team to design by ensuring our brand kit is up to date. There will also be an expectation for flexibility in working hours, some days may require late nights or early morning for Founder deadlines (e.g. an urgent pitch presentation). However, there will be time in lieu and days off to work around these hours. 


You will be supported by a Creative Lead in the Brand Studio team, ensuring your growth and development is at the forefront of your role. You will become the expert in all things CEO presentations and be a crucial part of the businesses success this year. 


What we're looking for:

  • Your portfolio displays strong visual communication skills with a focus on presentation decks. Strong brand design principles and craft and experience art directing a body of work that spans multiple formats and executions

  • You’ve got a minimum of 2-3 years in a brand design role. 

  • You’re comfortable with chaos. You can find solutions even without perfect precedents or direction, and map out a path to clarity and execution. You can work out ways to achieve the impossible and ride through change like a boss. 

  • You are flexible and adaptive. You are happy to work different schedules each week as they come. When deadlines and deliverables change, you can change tact quickly.

  • You’re eager to learn and evolve. From creative craft to leadership skills to market trends – you never stop pushing into the next big challenge. You work alongside people who are better than you at some things. To you this isn’t a threat, but an
    inspiring opportunity to learn and grow.

  • You think and act as We, not Me. We’re all in this together. You love nothing more than to collaborate and build trusted relationships with your team, ensuring everyone is empowered to do the best work of their life, and having the best time doing it. 

  • Right brain, left brain. Your head is in the clouds while your feet are on the ground. You balance creative and strategic excellence, flipping between big picture thinking and pixel-perfect craft without jeopardizing the quality of either.

  • You’re a fantastic communicator. Your communication skills help you work cross-functionally with other teams. You give and receive constructive feedback and can clearly articulate how creative work can be improved.

  • You have a bias for action. You’re happy to roll up your sleeves and muck in. No task is too small (or big!) if it helps the team around you to be more effective, and rallies them to achieve their goals faster.

  • You’re always striving for your best. You’re a talented creative with amazing design chops, yet you never stop pursuing excellence in yourself and in your work – “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.”
