About the group and / or team
As Canva’s reach continues to skyrocket, we aim to make Canva the go-to place for all design needs on the web. This involves providing our millions of users with the best design and copy, to give them a clear understanding of how best they can use our customisable templates and elements.
Recently, we’ve supercharged our efforts in the Philippines and are on a fast-paced journey to build our presence in the country.
To support this goal, we are looking for an offsite copywriter to produce excellent relevant written content for the Canva PH template library.
Assignments are given on an as needed basis and must be submitted by the set deadline.
Canva offers a vast collection of customizable templates for various design types, themes and topics. These templates, found on our templates page and on the editor, are professionally designed layouts that feature stunning elements from our massive media library and high-quality copy relevant to each design’s purpose or to user preference.
Template copy refers to the text featured on these customizable layouts. Copywriters are sent the category (design type) and subcategory (theme) for each template request along with the specified text fields and character counts.
It is their responsibility to supply the text required following these requirements and Canva’s writing guidelines.
This is a rare opportunity for copywriters accustomed to working independently and are looking to develop their craft by challenging themselves creatively.
About the candidate
With over 50,000 professionally designed layouts and their corresponding landing pages, our EN Templates page brings in over 200k visits monthly.
In line with our mission, we want to increase that by engaging our Filipino audience through the creation of bespoke templates, leveraging our Canva for Education and MSME communities.
We need to ensure that the design templates we produce are of excellent quality and relevant to what people are looking for.
For every template request, we need the high-quality copy to match. Having these copies available makes it easier for our designers to create more templates each week.
