This easy-to-use kit will help you innovate your product design concept quickly. Gerren picked it this week because it’s fantastic for helping designers create smart UX and wireframes from a diverse kit of well-constructed elements.


Are you on the lookout for jaw-dropping images that can be used in a lot of ways? Look no more, ‘Open skies,’ is what you’ve been looking for. It’s Chris’s pick this week from the marketplace, and it isn’t hard to see why. It’s versatile and has room for text too!


Getting married, or just need a romantic and sweet theme for your blog? Sarah’s favorite item in the marketplace this week is the ‘Me + You’ WordPress Wedding theme. It’s a flexible design that’s fully responsive and loaded with tons of back-end features to help you customize the site to suit your needs.


Who doesn’t love badges for decoration and branding? This set of over 250 vector decorative elements is Brian’s favorite this week on Creative Market. There are so many different ways to use these elements, this pack is a definitely a must-have.


Maryam is a fan of JACK FY – a display font that’s a little bit jazzy by FONTYOU. It’s a fun font that you can use for headlines, or even the bride and groom’s name on a wedding invitation suite.



Love color? If so, you’ll love Josh’s staff pick this week. This bundle of geometric patterns is perfect to use for backgrounds.
