Canva launches its online contest for Filipinos who can have a chance to share and express their love for a family, officemates, friends, or special someone in a huge digital billboard along EDSA. The #CanvaPasko Designed By You contest will encourage every Filipino especially this Christmas season to share their stories or message of how very important the people dearest to them for the whole city to know.

Canva Philippines Office Tour
Aside from the launch we were given a special tour inside their office as they proudly showed us the workforce behind Canva Philippines, office ambiance and small caféteria with their very own chefs who cook their free lunch courtesy of the company. Yes, you heard it right lunch here is free! Plus, they also have a ping pong table inside the office and if you want to cap off the day after those long working hours at Canva you can get a free cold beer in the fridge… it’s so amazing! We will upload the video soon to see how cool the Canva Philippines office in Makati City.
