The Creative Market team is growing! We would like all of you to meet Drew, our new Community Manager. Drew is focused on supporting shop owner needs and making sure shops have a voice within Creative Market. That being said, we’d love to help you get to know him a little better!

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do for Creative Market.

I am someone who is extremely passionate about the concept of ‘community’, which is why I’m so excited to be taking on the role of Community Manager at Creative Market. Being able to help creatives put their creations out into the world, and being a part of building a marketplace that makes creating easier for everyone, is so great!

What were you doing before you joined the team and how did you and Creative Market “find each other”?

Over the last few years, I’ve been working as a creative consultant for musicians and authors to help them launch major projects. Helping creatives reach the world with their art is incredibly important to me, and I’ve often relied on Creative Market and the amazing assets on the marketplace to put projects together quickly and efficiently. When I saw that Creative Market was looking for someone to help build the community of both shop owners and buyers, it felt like a perfect fit.  

When not at work, what do you do for fun?

I travel a lot with my wife, and when I travel I drink lots of coffee. I feel like I’m a ‘coffee tourist’, always looking for new and interesting shops to visit to get an understanding of the area’s culture and, of course, a really good shot of espresso. I’m always interested in a coffee shop recommendation!

Do you have any go-to music when you’re working?

Over the years I have become incredibly reliant on Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlists, and I’ve kept an archive of hundreds of songs they’ve sent my way here. I also love Spotify’s ‘POLLEN’ playlist, with the apt description of “Genre-less. Quality first always.” 

Have you seen any products here on the site that you especially like?

As I’ve gotten to know the shops on Creative Market, there are SO MANY products that I’m in love with. Tobias Saul’s ‘Mogan’ font, New Tropical Design’s ‘ROCKWELL’…all of the fonts that are consistently being uploaded to Creative Market are mind-blowingly good, and looking that them always makes me want to start a new creative project just to use them!

What inspires you creatively?

I am inspired when I see others following their passion and taking risks for no other reason than that it’s the right thing to do. I am inspired when I’m working with others that have the same sense of care and quality that I hold dear. I am thankful to be inspired both by Creative Market’s team and shop owners, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can all create together.
