Australian startup Canva has announced an additional $3.6 million in funding and new partnerships with website hosts to integrate its quick graphic design tool.
The Sydney-based startup, which counts former Apple luminary Guy Kawasaki as its chief evangelist, has signed agreements with GoDaddy, Tailwind, Agora Pulse, Post Planner and TabSite to integrate Canva into their Web platforms.
Under the partnerships, each company will add Canva “design” buttons next to existing upload options. Users can click the button to quickly design graphics without leaving the website.
Canva is accepting applications from interested third-party websites that wish to add a design button, with the button rolling out over the next few weeks, Canva said.
