Public Profile

Your public-facing Canva profile.

What is a public profile in Canva?

A public profile in Canva is a feature that allows users to showcase their designs and portfolios to the public. It serves as a personal space where users can display their work, share their design ideas, and even allow others to use their designs as templates. This feature is particularly useful for designers who want to gain exposure and build their online presence.

The public profile includes the user's name, profile picture, a short bio, and their published designs. Users can customize their profile to reflect their personal brand or style. They can also choose which designs to make public and which to keep private. Additionally, the public profile allows users to follow other designers, interact with their work, and stay updated with their latest designs.
