Code meets creativity at ​Canva’s first community ​event for developers.


Canva Extend was our first-ever community ​event for developers. We were challenged to ​build a design system that catered to this new ​audience, one that looked professional and ​approachable but still distinctly Canva.


Inspired by programming language, grids, ​monospaced typefaces, wireframes, terminal, ​and monochromatic screens, Canva Extend's ​brand identity plays in a space already familiar to ​developers.

To strike a balance, we brought in impactful ​portraits that added a human touch to the sleek ​world of tech.

FONT: JetBrains Mono. ​A typeface designed ​for coding, praised for ​its ease of readability.

The indents created ​where curves ​connect to the ​stem are nice little ​nod to Canva Sans.

The underscore at the

end of the wordmark ​signifies the desire to ​complete a command.


Our portraits captured real Canva developers to ​authentically represent the community and ​celebrate its diversity.


From digital invites and presentations to on-site event styling and swag, we stayed true to bringing a tech-inspired world to life. This created a cohesive, familiar space that beautifully showcased the unique landscape that developers inhabit.
