AND, you can also find some great pattern options in Canva if you want them in your Brand colors. Even better, you can create your own custom patterns.

Watch the video below to learn how to create your own branded and unique 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.
Go to the elements or background tab and scroll down towards the end to see the options. You can also type “patterns” into the search box.

Pro tip: Try to select pattern options that are free.

  • Option 2: Choose one of Canva’s existing elements
    You can select an element like a flower, feather or even a coffee mug and repeat it to create your own pattern. Most elements allow you to change the colors to your own brand colors.

  • Option 3: Using your own elements
    Already have your own icons or elements? Use them in a unique way to create a custom pattern for your visuals.

Pro tip: Make sure that the elements or icons are seamless on all sides.

STEP 3: Downland and Upload Your Patterns

Once you’ve created your masterpiece, save it and download it in both JPG and PNG formats if the latter makes sense for your design.

Then import them into a patterns project folder or your Brand Kit section, so you can reuse them in your visuals with ease.

I’m excited to see what you create. Come show us in the TCC Community.

See you next time.
