Creative Market is My Weakness


I had planned to write a post about how much I love Creative Market at some point, but my hand has now been forced.

Creative Market is a website where Graphic Designers sell their wares.  They have fonts and backgrounds and textures and fonts and templates and graphics and fonts.  Did I mention the fonts?

I love fonts.  I am a font junkie.

There is no doubt that you can get free fonts and graphics and design elements on the web, but Creative Market takes it to a whole ‘nother level, folks.  And you don’t have to worry about downloading a virus from them like you do with some of the sketchier free sites.

When you sign up for a free account with Creative Market, every Monday you will get to take advantage of their Free Goods for the week.  Usually there are about 5 things available for free download, and there is almost always a free font available.  I have gotten some great stuff for free, including an awesome resume template that I plan to use if I ever try to get another job.

But what about the Fonts?  There are amazing Open Type Fonts available.  What does that mean? It’s complicated.  But, basically…..

And who doesn’t want to be able to do that???

Most of the things you can download from Creative Market require Photoshop or Illustrator to use.  I have been able to make the fonts work on Pixelmator and Silhouette Cameo as well.  When in doubt, though, you can shoot a note to the designer and they will answer your questions.

Back to the reason for this post….like I said, I had planned to share CM with you at some point, but now I absolutely must.  This morning I got an email that they are releasing a new Bundle.  I bought a huge bundle from them a few months ago, and one of the many things in it was the template that I used to design this website, “Isabelle” by Bluchic.  Seriously, for a wannabe amateur Graphic Designer like myself, it was like Christmas.

There are too many things to list that are included in this NEW bundle of fabulous goodies, but the fonts are awesome, and there are tons of elements that you can use for flyers, invitations, cards, etc…  Check out Creative Market’s July Big Bundle and get 106 products, worth over $1,475 for only $39!

Or just sign up and take advantage of the free weekly goodies!  Like fonts!!

I hope you enjoy Creative Market as much as I do!
