Graphic design startup Canva has officially launched Canva for Work, the premium version of its DIY design platform.

The company has been teasing its arrival for quite some time and as of today, it’s an option open to all companies at no cost for two months. Regular pricing is $10 a month per person, which it makes it an affordable option for small startups as well as bigger companies.

Using the new service, businesses can manage their site’s design, edit, resize and redesign images and logos, access a selection of fonts and sort designs for social profiles.

One of its handy features is that it allows designers to create ready-made templates for almost any file format that other people on the team can then use and customize to suit.

The company said it will also launch an ‘experts’ platform in the future that will connect Canva users to professionals and agencies to assist on their projects. There is no definitive date for this launch yet.
