Publishing Designs Policy

Pencila thrives on a creative community, where members help each other find new inspiration and design approaches. Anyone is welcome to publish their creations to share them with the community. Publishing designs to the community means sharing a copy of your project to be usable and modifiable by other users. Anyone who uses your design gets a new copy, which doesn’t affect your original version. You can publish designs for any category such as Logos, Labels, T-Shirts, Cards, Posters, or others. 

Copyright and Licensing 

Any design you publish to the community will be released under our license agreement. This means that other users are free to use, modify, or share the design, even for commercial purposes. By publishing a design, you agree to these license terms. 

Published Designs 

Published designs are shown on the News page, allowing other users to browse, search, comment, and like your designs. Additionally, our team reviews published designs and may feature them on the Featured feed to be accessible in the editor as well. Published designs are also visible on your profile page, where other users can follow you to see new creations in their notifications and on top of their news feed. 

Remixed Designs 

You can publish designs based on existing design templates, but include modifications in text, color, elements, or layout. These designs will be automatically tagged with a “Remix” badge and include a link to the source file. 

Quality Standards 

Pencila reserves the right to decide whether a design gets published or not. All submitted designs will undergo a review process to ensure they meet our quality standards. Designs that do not meet these standards will not be published. 

How it Works 

1. Create a design using our editor.

2. Open the sharing tab and choose “Publish to Community.”

3. Add a name for your design, category, search tags, and a description.

4. Publish the design to the community.


Please follow these guidelines when publishing a design:

- Use fictive text instead of “Your Name Here” or similar random text fillers.

- Don’t use text which could infringe copyrights, e.g., real brand names.

- Create a good layer structure.

- Avoid a large color palette.

- Only include external content if you are the sole owner of it.

- Don’t use pornographic, illegal, or immoral content.
