I am glad you stopped here, to read this blog post because it is about to get fun!
Today, I am going to share with you my go-to graphic assets and elements.
So, if you are a graphic designer, you probably know those terms.
If not, graphic assets and elements are “add-on graphics” that are already made by amazing other graphic designers and artists.
Graphic assets can be Mockups, Illustrations, and more.
Elements can be Icons and other kinds of templates.
Ready? Then, let’s dive right into my go-to graphic assets and elements.
1- WHERE TO FIND GRAPHIC ASSETS AND ELEMENTS?
Ok, so of course, I think the first thing I can share is where do I find my go-to graphic assets and elements?
And, my principal source of graphics is Envato Elements.
What is Envato Elements?
Envato Elements is an unlimited subscription service for digital assets, tailored to the needs of agencies, designers, marketers and other professionals who need items on a frequent or high-volume basis
Ready to use Graphic Assets
So, to be able to get graphic and elements assets on Envato Elements, you will have to get their subscription.
They have multiple plans you can choose from!

2- MY GO-TO GRAPHIC ASSETS: MOCKUPS
So, the first go-to graphic asset I always search for is Mockups!
In manufacturing and design, a mockup, or mock-up, is a scale or full-size model of a design or device, used for teaching, demonstration, design evaluation, promotion, and other purposes. A mockup may be a prototype if it provides at least part of the functionality of a system and enables testing of a design.
3- DITAL ASSETS GO-TO: SOCIAL MEDIA TEMPLATES
Alright, the second go-to graphic asset I always search for is Social Media Templates.
And, I stop you here! I know what you must think.
Why are you not making your own social media templates as a graphic designer? Well, my short answer is TIME.
As a Graphic designer, you have multiple accounts to take care of and a lot of Graphic design templates to create for your clients.
Now, sometimes when I want to go faster, I bulk Pinterest Pins design for example.
I will go to Envato Elements and search for new Pinterest Pin Social media templates!
4- MY GO-TO GRAPHIC ELEMENTS: ICON, PHOTO AND VIDEO STOCKS
So, I have a couple of elements I liked to search for when designing.
Of course, one of them is Icons! But not only.
I also look for Illustrations, Painting,s and any other little graphic I can need!
Now, Envato Elements provide great options that you can use on your Personal and Commercial Projects.
On another note (and other elements) Photos and videos are a huge part of my designs! I like to be able to have access to some new photos or footage!
5- FREE GO-TO GRAPHIC ASSETS AND ELEMENTS
Alright, I can’t really leave you there with only payment options for your graphic assets and elements.
So, here are a couple of sites you can look at.
Note that, since those elements are free, you might not be able to use them commercially.
ALWAYS look at the license that comes with the digital asset you are downloading.
