Are you tired of spending too much time sifting through your cluttered Canva account,
desperately searching for that one image or template you need for your business
graphics? If so, you’re not alone! Many Canva users face this frustration, and the good
news is that there’s a solution. In this article, I’ll show you how to organize your Canva
account like a pro so you can design efficiently and enjoy the process.

Start with the Basics
Before diving into the details, let’s cover the fundamentals. The first step is to avoid the
chaotic home screen. Instead, navigate to the “Your Projects” folder, where you’ll find a
more organized view of your designs, images, and folders.
1. Set Up Your Brand Kit
Your brand kit is the cornerstone of your Canva organization. To set it up, follow these
● Upload your brand logos, including different versions. It’s a good idea to have a
white version for dark backgrounds.
● Add your brand colors by inputting the hex codes.
● Set your brand fonts. If you have Canva Pro, you can also upload fonts
purchased from other sources.
A well-configured brand kit ensures consistency in your designs.
2. Clean Up Your Files
It’s time to declutter your Canva account:
● In the “Your Projects” tab, click on the “Designs” section.
● Begin at the bottom of the list, and delete any designs you no longer need by
clicking on the three dots and selecting “Move to Trash.”

● Rename your designs for easier searchability. Canva’s search function relies on
file names, so choose descriptive words.
3. Organize Your Images
Managing your uploaded images is just as crucial as organizing designs:
● Access your images in the “Images” tab.
● Similar to designs, start from the bottom and delete unused or unnecessary
● Rename your images for easy identification in the future.
4. Create a Custom Folder System
Now comes the fun part—organizing your Canva account with a custom folder system.
You can structure your folders by product, theme, project, or whatever makes sense for
your business. Here are some folder ideas:
● Client work
● Lead magnets
● Social media graphics
● Digital products
● Your brand elements
● Website graphics
● Frequently used templates
You can even create subfolders within folders for more granular organization.
5. Move Files to Folders
With your folder system in place, start moving your designs and images into the
appropriate folders:
● In the “Designs” and “Images” tabs, select individual files or use the checkbox for
bulk selection.
● Click the folder icon and choose the destination folder.
● Click “Move to Folder.”
This step may take time, especially if you have many files, but it’s well worth the effort.
6. Master Canva Organization

Now that your Canva account is neatly organized, you can use it like a pro. Take
advantage of the efficient system you’ve created to streamline your graphic design
● Quickly locate your designs and images within folders.
● Drag and drop folders to rearrange them as needed.
● Enjoy a clutter-free Canva account that enhances your creative process.

Organizing your Canva account is the key to designing like a pro. With a clean and
efficient workspace, you’ll save time, reduce frustration, and have more fun creating
stunning graphics for your business. Follow these steps, and you’ll be well on your way
to Canva mastery.
