Canva Manila officially announced its presence in the Philippines today in an intimate media launch here at The Fort. The 11-month old start-up was founded in Australia by a half-Filipina Melanie Perkins.
The start-up is now joined by Guy Kawasaki as their Chief Evangelist. Canva Manila started with 8 people in their Makati office but is looking to hire more than double that in the coming months.
Canva is a web-based tool/service for making really simple yet amazing graphics for web or print. It’s by invite only but they have over 650,000 users in the last 11 months of operations.
The stock images and graphics are mostly free to use but some will require a $1 one-time royalty fee. You can check out Canva here.
