There can never be enough of resources and assets for Graphic Designers. Here’s a look at 6 Best Marketplaces for Graphic Designers. Many of these marketplaces allow you to sell your designs and earn decent commissions. In this blog, I’ll share points and views from my perspective and my views may differ from yours. So, be Kind 🙂
I started my design career selling on graphicriver.net. This was one of the first marketplaces on the web that allowed me to quit my job and work from home. It’s a great place to buy and sell assets. If you plan to sell on graphicriver.net, your work would need to be “top notch” as they have a strict review process. I have had my designs (items) rejected several times and today I’m an “Elite Author” having almost 20k in sales.
Pros – Wide Variety of Design Templates at reasonable prices
Score – 9/10
Like graphicriver.net, Designbundles allows you to sell your work and purchase from the site. The website is mainly suited for designers who make SVG graphics and fonts.

They have a super friendly facebook group that will clear your doubts and help you in your journey to becoming a successful seller.

CreativeMarket is a great place to sell and purchase designs from. The website is “cleaner” and more visually appealing. While you can purchase a wide variety of templates across all categories, I feel the platform specializes in Fonts, Brushes & social media templates. Creative Market has been around for a while and a enjoys a good amount of real estate in the design space.
Pros – Quite tough to get featured as a seller.
Score – 9/10

99designs is the go-to graphic design service by Vistaprint. They make it easy to work with professional, creative experts from around the world and build your brand through custom, memorable design. They even allow designers to participate in competitions posted by clients. Pretty Cool!
Pros – I love the competitions aspect of the website. It’s a great way to see how your designs compares to the other participants in the competitions you enter. It’s good for know where you stand as a designer while standing the possibility of earning a good chunk of cash at the same time, that’s only if your design is selected as the winner.
