The idea for Canva came about when Melanie Perkins was teaching graphic design programs at the university and found students struggled to learn the basics. Partnering with co-founder Cliff Obrecht, the pair launched Fusion Books, an online design tool that made it easy for students and teachers to create their own yearbooks. They soon realized that the technology they’d developed could be used much more broadly. After searching far and wide, they launched Canva with tech co-founder Cameron Adams.
