Secrets of the Trade | Where to Find the Best Design Resources

Creative Market - library of the best design resources

Have you ever heard of a little gem of a website called Creative Market? It’s a marketplace similar to Etsy where designers and illustrators can sell their handmade digital work. Creative Market is one of our favorite resources here at Designer Blogs. It’s one of our first go-to places for gorgeous typefaces and textures, but you can also find an endless number of the best design resources there.

In this post I put together some of my favorite goods, you can find for sale there:

Product Mockups

photographer but still want amazing photos to feature something you’ve digitally created? Mockups are a great way of showing how your art will look ‘in action’ without spending lots of money on actual prints. On Creative Market you can find mockups of mugs, boxes, socks, posters, and everything else! Use them for a better presentation of your work as a great addition to posts. We always use poster mockups for our free printables.
