Labor of Love – Creative Market Now Open!

It’s been a long time coming, and after many months of hard work we’re super excited and proud to announce that Creative Market has opened its doors!

In a heartfelt welcome message, our fearless leader Bubs explains some of the thought behind Creative Market:

Your local farmer’s market is more than a transactional experience, it’s an opportunity to meet the producers and learn the story behind their goods, and to interact with a community of like-minded people who all appreciate artisan creators. Creative Market is built with a similar ethos to make beautiful design simple and accessible to everybody, by building a platform that lets designers around the world connect with consumers of design assets like fonts, templates, illustrations, and more. And to facilitate those connections in a marketplace that celebrates, supports and pushes the design world forward.

You can read more about our goals and our future in the full blog post.

Without further adieu, we present to you Creative Market! Feel free to poke around, click all the things, and if you have any feedback for us, boy would we love to hear from you. :)


As you’re looking around you may notice a pattern here and there that looks familiar. Well that’s because a few folks from the COLOURlovers community were handpicked to showcase their patterns in the new marketplace.

Now some of you may be wondering how you too can create a shop on Creative Market. While we would love to invite each and every member of COLOURlovers, the reality is that the marketplace would be overflowing with your colorful patterns, and we’re trying to build something universally awesome that features all kinds of artists and their content. That being said, we do have plans to invite more of you amazing pattern-creators in the future, so stay tuned!
