If you're looking for free mockups, designs, logos, and other resources in 2020, Placeit is a good place to find terrific digital resources.
Follow along with us over on our Envato Tuts+ YouTube channel:
What Is Placeit?
Placeit is an affordable online design generator that makes professional branding, promotion and marketing tools accessible to everyone. It does this by providing design novices as well as those with more experience with high-quality designs, logos, videos and mockups that they can customise online and download in a matter of seconds.
This means that you can design all your branding and marketing materials directly from your browser, without needing complicated software.
How to Use Placeit
What's more, Placeit is designed to suit a range of budgets. If you regularly need mockups, logos, and various designs, you can sign up for a low monthly or yearly plan. This gives you access to unlimited downloads of any and all the digital assets available at Placeit.
You heard that right. One low monthly/yearly fee = unlimited access to the best logos, mockups, designs and videos available on the internet today. But that's not all.
If you're on a budget and can only afford to buy one digital resource at a time, you have another option. Rather than taking advantage of that low monthly/yearly fee, you can create the resource you want and pay a small fee to download just that resource. How cool is that?
What's more, Placeit is super easy to use. But before I show you how, let's talk about how to find FREE mockups and designs on Placeit.
How to Find Free Mockups and Designs on Placeit
By now, you know how awesome Placeit is, and you're raring to get started with this amazing service, but hold your horses—we've got a surprise for you (not much of a surprise, granted, since we promised it to you in the headline).
Not only does Placeit offer premium resources at bargain prices, but it also gives away tons of awesome FREE resources every month.
Okay, so how do you get the free stuff? Well, there are two ways to find free resources on Placeit.
The easiest and most obvious way is just to type FREE in the search bar at the top of Placeit and, voila, free stuff appears. When you search this way, though, you will find premium resources mixed in as well, so be sure to look for the banner in the left corner of an item to know if it is free.
Option two is the inside scoop, so pay attention. Go to the Placeit site and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. In the left-hand column you will see Free Placeit Templates. Click it, and Hey Presto!
Pages of FREE items available on Placeit at the time of your visit. You can create and download free T-shirt mockups, free iPhone mockups, free gaming logos, free sports logos, free whatever else is available at the time. Pretty awesome, right?
