How To Make A Transparent Logo On Canva

Creating a logo for your brand is a critical step in establishing your business identity. But sometimes, you need your logo to be transparent to fit perfectly on different colored backgrounds. If you’re wondering how to achieve this, you’re at the right place. In this blog post, we will walk through the simple steps to create a transparent logo on Canva.

Step 1: Create or Upload Your Logo Design

First, navigate to the Canva website and log in to your account. If you don’t have an account, you can easily sign up for a free one. Once logged in, click on “Create a design” on the upper right-hand corner and choose “Custom dimensions”. Enter the dimensions you want for your logo and click on “Create new design”.

If you already have a logo design, click on “Uploads” on the left sidebar, press the “Upload media” button, and select your design from your computer. If you want to create a new logo, you can pick any of the templates provided by Canva in the “Elements” and “Text” sections.

Step 2: Make the Background Transparent

Once your logo design is ready, it’s time to make the background transparent. To do this, click on the “Background” tab on the toolbar at the top and select the “Transparent” option. If you don’t see this option, it means that you’re using the free version of Canva, which does not support this feature. You’ll need to upgrade to Canva Pro to access it.

Step 3: Download Your Transparent Logo

Now that your logo has a transparent background, you can download it. Click on the “Download” button on the top right side of the screen. A window will pop-up, here select “PNG” as the file type since it supports transparency, and make sure the “Transparent background” option is checked. Click on “Download” and your transparent logo will be saved to your computer.


And that’s it! You have successfully created a transparent logo using Canva. This feature is incredibly handy for when you need to place your logo over different backgrounds without a white or colored box disrupting the aesthetics. Now go ahead and add your newly created transparent logo to your website, social media profiles, or anywhere else you need your brand to shine.
