3 Steps for Creating Gorgeous Branded Patterns in Canva
STEP 1: Select Your Design Size
Select the size you want to use for your pattern. Do you want a square, horizontal or vertical design? I usually create mine using 2500 x 2500 pixels.
STEP 2: Create Your Pattern
Option 1: Choose one of Canva’s existing patterns
Click to the elements or background tab + scroll down to see your options.
To make this easier, you can type “patterns” into the search box.
Pro Tip: Try to select patterns that are free to save a little money, honey.
Option 2: Choose one of Canva’s lovely existing elements
It allows you to select an element of theirs — like a flower, spiral or even a coffee mug + repeat it to create your own handy dandy pattern. Most of these elements allow you to change the colors to fit your brand making this a true gem in the world of DIY graphic design.
Option 3: Use Your Own Elements
Already have your own icons you’re hoping to use? Use them in a creative way to curate a custom pattern for your visuals.
Pro Tip: Make sure that the elements are seamless on all sides!
STEP 3: Download + Upload Your Patterns
Once you’ve made your masterpiece (lookout, Picasso!) Save it + download it in both JPG and PNG formats.
Once that’s complete, import them into a patterns “project” folder or your Brand Kit section so you can reuse them with ease later on.
Cheers to creating some incredible pieces to enhance your (already gorgeous) brand! xo
