A Guide to Black Friday Sales for Web Designers
Black Friday is just two weeks away, making it the perfect time to start thinking about any resources you want to look out for when the sales hit.
You might think we’re barking up the wrong tree by suggesting designers pay attention to the upcoming Black Friday sales – aren’t they the time to buy $1 waffle irons and half price TVs? They used to be, yes, but in recent years more and more brands and websites have begun to offer incredible deals that can see you save £100s if you know where to look.
Last year we spotted so many fantastic savings that we wanted to share just a few of the websites that you might want to visit on November 25th if you love a bargain and want to treat your design library to a few new resources in time for the Christmas period.
Famed for their regular bundles that can see savings of up to 96% on the usual retail price, Creative Market gathers together everything from fonts to stock images, from vectors to Photoshop brushes. For the past few years they’ve run great deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday so be sure to bookmark your favourite sellers to see what promotions they’ll be running.
If last year is anything to go by, Mojo Marketplace is somewhere you’ll definitely want to visit if you want to restock your theme library as their 2015 deal included 12 themes for just $29. Fingers crossed we see something as impressive this year!
The Hungry JPEG
The Hungry JPEG should always be near the top of your list if you want to pick up budget-friendly design resources, as they have a $1 section all year round that contains some real gems. Even so, their Black Friday sale won’t be one to miss as they feature some seriously impressive goods at great prices.
Similarly to Creative Market, Design Cuts is known for selling heavily discounted design bundles for graphic and web designers so be sure to visit on Black Friday to enjoy great products at up to 99% off.
Looking to brush up on your existing skills or master some new ones? Udemy is one of the web’s best learning platforms and they offers 1000s of courses that range from business development to graphic design. With up to 90% off of certain courses, their sale is one you’ll definitely want to check out.
Adobe Creative Cloud
Have you been meaning to sign up to Adobe Creative Cloud to get the most out of their suite of products? If so, keep an eye on the website around Thanksgiving as you may be in for a treat. We’re hoping for a promotion as good as last year’s, when you could subscribe to a Creative Cloud plan and receive a whopping 20% off.
Get your wishlist ready as we’re likely to see some great deals on stock photography at the end of the month. Last year users were treated to 15% off of subscription plans so it’s a great time to replenish your library of stock images.
Fonts are one of these resources that are just a little bit addictive. You mean to only buy one and then suddenly you have ten in your basket and your bank balance is weeping. Luckily, MyFonts often run seasonal offers so we’re hoping for a little something to be launched just in time for Black Friday.
