Creative Market is “a platform for handcrafted, mousemade design content from independent creatives around the world.” They’re also “passionate about making beautiful design simple and accessible to everyone.” As I understand it, the spirit of the marketplace is to keep offerings carefully curated, and also affordable.

Penina's Creative Market Store Header

I’m delighted to be among the first artists invited by Creative Market to sell creative content in their online stores. I’ve had a blast choosing artwork to share, as well as preparing snappy previews to showcase that artwork in the context of the beautiful site layout. Some popular patterns are now available, as well as a handful of illustrations and icons.

Most of the artwork is in vector format (AI or SVG) but I am gradually enhancing the packages to include a PNG or PSD file for people more comfortable with bitmaps. Please let me know if you have questions or requests!

While the site is simple to start with, basic features are promising. My favorite is the ability to create Collections of other artists’ work. Here are some of my spottings so far (or see all my Collections, here):

More features are planned, particularly to build a vibrant community in the context of the site mission. Having created one of the internet’s most successful, authentic communities (being COLOURlovers), I’m confident we’ll be an active part of something incredible.
