Great Resource for Designers

If you’re a graphic designer without the talent of also being an artist, sometimes you need a little help. My go-to for elements for my design is Creative Market.

Creative Market is like an Etsy for designers. Other designers create and post their images, typography, website themes, web elements, product mockup photos and just a whole lot of things, all for sale at very affordable prices.

For example, this font:

 

MadinaScriptType

You can buy it to use in your personal projects for just $16, or license it for a project for a client will sell (say a book), you can by an extended license for $40.  I’ve purchased stuff for as little as $4 to use in my own personal projects.

AND if you subscribe to the Creative Market newsletter, every Monday you’ll get an email offering 6 items for free for the week! And it’s good stuff!
