A platform to create free online design and visual communication opened its flagship office in Austin on June 6 at 3212 E. Cesar Chavez St., Bldg. 1, Austin.

Launched in 2013, Canva's headquarters in based out of Sydney, Australia. Canva spokesperson Barbara Roy said in fewer than two years, the company outgrew its original Austin location at 200 E. 6th St., Ste. 200, Austin, which opened in 2021.

The campus is 25,000 square feet and offers 108 work desks, 21 meeting rooms, eight solo pods and a training room.

"We’re so excited to have joined a community of artisans, art galleries, creators, gourmands and craft breweries, and to be part of the evolution of this growing creative precinct," Canva's Head of Vibe Chris Low said in a media release on June 8. "We're proud to have filled our walls with murals and artworks from three local galleries: the renowned woman-owned Vaughn Gallery; Sage Studio, a studio made up of artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities; and Art from the Streets, a group of artists experiencing homelessness."

The Austin campus has a little more than 100 employees—called Canvanauts—and the company is looking to build up that number.

"We’ve set out to equip Canvanauts with the spaces they need to create their best work, build community and inspire new ideas," Low said.
