Monotype and Canva Announce Partnership


Monotype adds over 1,100 Curated Fonts to the Canva platform providing global Access to creativity and design

Monotype, font and technology specialist, and Canva, a design platform with over 110 million monthly users, announced a partnership to make over 1,100 curated fonts available to Canva’s global design community.

This partnership will provide high-quality and iconic types to businesses, designers, independent creatives, and individuals — empowering them to create beautiful designs and experiences using the emotive quality of type to reinforce their storytelling and creativity. 

In addition, there will be an expansive variety of fonts like Cotoris, Snell Roundhand®, and Grand Cru that evoke emotions, celebrate occasions and tell stories through their designs. And there are hundreds of designs for global scripts like Arabic, Devanagari, Thai, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.  

“Design has continued to permeate all aspects of our lives, and as people create in digital, print, and more, they’ve continued to gain more appreciation for the power of typography to help them express themselves in new ways,” said Mike Matteo, SVP Global Channels and Alliances, Monotype. “Our partnership with Canva puts high-quality fonts into the hands of more than 100 million people and will influence billions of designs. It’s taking the best of creativity and technology– bringing the power of type to the world.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Monotype to bring a curated selection of their font library to Canva’s global design community,” said Jared Ben, Content Partnerships Lead at Canva. “We’re working to ensure the best content is accessible on Canva. This partnership with Monotype, who have set the standard for font design worldwide, reinforces our commitment to empowering users with the highest quality design tools and resources.”

This curated font library will be available on Canva’s platform next month. The partnership between Monotype and Canva will extend into collaborative content and education, expanding the availability and knowledge of typography for Canva users, from marketers to small business owners and beyond.
