"We are excited to introduce a revamped Canva experience and a suite of new products to empower every organisation to design,” said Melanie Perkins, co-founder and CEO of Canva. “As demand for visual content soars, navigating organizational complexity is more challenging than ever. We democratized the design ecosystem in our first decade and now look forward to unifying the fragmented ecosystems of design, AI, and workflow tools for every organization in our second decade.”

As visual communication becomes the status quo, Canva’s latest Visual Economy Report found 92% of business leaders now expect employees in non-design roles to possess design skills. Canva’s new products unveiled on stage at Canva Create directly address this need by putting the power of design in the hands of the 99% of employees without professional design training.


Today, Canva touts more than 185 million monthly active users and more than $2.3 billion in annualized revenue. In just over 18 months since the introduction of Canva’s workplace-focused Visual Suite, more than 95 million new users have joined the platform, a figure that first took the company nearly nine years to achieve.


Already used by teams across 95% of Fortune 500 companies, the latest additions to Canva's workplace solutions mark a major step forward for the company's enterprise strategy and advance its position as a leader in visual communication.

Merck Provides Update on Phase III TrilynX Study in Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer24.6.2024 22:35:00 CEST | Press release

Merck, a leading science and technology company, today announced the discontinuation of the Phase III randomized TrilynX study evaluating xevinapant plus chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with unresected locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (LA SCCHN). The decision follows a pre-planned interim analysis performed by the study’s Independent Data Monitoring Committee, which found that the trial would be unlikely to meet its primary objective of prolonging event-free survival. Top-line safety data were overall compatible with the chemo-radio sensitizing properties of xevinapant. The company will conduct an in-depth review of the data and will share the results in a peer-reviewed forum. LA SCCHN has proven to be a difficult-to-treat form of cancer.
