There are several things to consider when it comes to marketing your brand. If you struggle to keep track of your brand colors, logo files, graphics, or fonts—the brand kit in Canva Pro may be just what you need.
What is a Brand Kit in Canva?
When you started your business, you most likely spent time carefully selecting each component of your brand’s identity. The different elements you selected are specific to your brand and they will help increase brand recognition—the ability for your customers to easily identify your brand.
Brand Kits are a unique feature in Canva that allows you to store all of your brand essentials in one place—making them easily accessible as you are creating your marketing materials.
A brand kit includes:
- Pre-Designed Templates
Canva Pro even offers the ability to add contextual brand guidelines to ensure your brand elements are implemented exactly the way you intended for them to be.
