Fusion Books allowed students to create their own school yearbooks with the help of a simple drag-and-drop tool that included a library of design templates that could be customized with photos, illustrations, and fonts.

Perkins had intended to create software that would make the entire design process easier, but she decided against it because of the competition from large companies and her lack of resources.

Obrecht began cold calling schools in Perkins’ mother’s living room in an attempt to gain new clients for Fusion Book.

Their parents were frequently involved in the printing of the yearbooks. Fusion Books expanded into France and New Zealand over the course of five years, becoming Australia’s largest yearbook publisher.

Bill Tai, a well-known investor, came to Perth in 2011 to judge a start-up competition. Over dinner, Perkins and Obrecht presented Tai with the original Canva concept.

They didn’t get any money, but they became regulars at Tai’s investor and startup founder gatherings. Perkins and Obrecht met Lars Rasmussen, co-founder of Google Maps, at one of these gatherings in Silicon Valley.

Adams was in Silicon Valley trying to raise funds for his start-up when Perkins sent him another email asking if he wanted to join the company. Adams was initially not interested in joining the company because he was starting his own company called fluent.io. Adams was in Silicon Valley trying to raise funds for his start-up when Perkins sent him another email asking if he wanted to join the company.
