Why I Love Creative Market (And You Should, Too!)

Creative Market

The farther I journey into my dream of becoming a Web and Graphic Designer, the cooler the stuff I find. I recently stumbled upon Creative Market and I found a TON of things to pin for personal use as well as commercial use. Any of these items would be perfect for people who like to create professional looking gifts or products for a business.

What is Creative Market? What Does it Sell?

All sorts of goodness! They’re an amazing market where small business owners can share stock photos, graphics, templates (cards, business cards, flyers, all sorts of stuff!), themes (think WordPress, Bootstrap, etc), fonts (even FREE fonts!), brushes and gradients for Photoshop/Illustrator, and 3D images.

What I Love about Creative Market

  • Every week, they share 6 Freebies! How cool is that? Patterns, fonts, themes, all sorts of goodies for Creative folks. Click here to check out this week’s selections.
  • You’re Supporting Small Businesses. Being a small business owner myself, I firmly believe in supporting my tribe.
  • Everything is Gorgeous. Seriously, I have yet to find anything that makes me think, “wow, that’s ugly.” You can tell people invested a ton of time into their work, and you’re getting something truly topnotch.
  • It Inspires me. It inspires me to keep learning and keep working hard. While you see similar products such as, let’s say, watercolor brushes for Adobe Photoshop (and good gravy are there a ton of watercolor brushes and textures right now!) each one is a little different and special. It inspires me to create something perhaps slightly similar, yet unique that the world hasn’t seen yet. It reminds me that there is plenty of room in the world for your brand of creativity.

Seriously, whether you digitally craft for business or fun, check out Creative Market.
