Hope you are all healthy and well! Since it’s Saturday and we all sit at home I thought I’ll start a small thread and ask you how you’ve discovered Creative Market and maybe also how it changed your life. Would love to read your stories!
Here’s a small back info from me:
My life really turned upside down after I “discovered” CM. The fun fact was, I visited CM for a long time every Monday to grab the freebies (it was the highlight of my week haha) without even thinking about opening a shop. I think I did it for a whole year or so and I really can’t tell why I’ve never ever thought about making something by myself but I guess I didn’t understand the concept behind it. The months went by and I worked for clients the whole day (and night ) long and came over on Mondays to grab the cool fancy free stuff (yes, I’m 100% guilty). And than, I think after scrolling through the Marketplace for no particular reason, I stumbled over Nickys video. And at that moment my brain exploded haha. The enlightenment came hard and quick: “WHAT?! you can open a shop? You can do things without a client and make a living from that? What is this? Wonderland?” the rest is history I guess now about 4 years later I simply can’t imagine how my life would be without Creative Market. I learned so incredibly much on the way and I developed so many skills by myself. I also developed a new way being creative - or maybe you can say, I went back to the way we where creative as kids, which we often lose through the process of adulting. This also turned me into my current direction which I haven’t planned before. I created a way to unchain my work from deadlines and boundaries and I’ve found so many crazy cool people here who have the same passion as mine! Sometimes I wish I would have discovered Creative Market earlier but on the other hand everything made sense.
All in one I can say Creative Market not only showed me an option beside the “normal work” but also helped me to develop myself as a creative.
What is your story? Did Creative market change your life? And if so, how? Gimme the tea I’m ready
