There are quite a number of styled stock photo libraries out there for fancy girl bosses like us, but very few have the quality and variety of Haute Stock (formerly Haute Chocolate). It’s my secret weapon, really, for creating all the mockups and quote graphics that I share on social media and on my blog. I’ve been a happy subscriber to the Haute Stock library, and I was so thrilled when they tapped me to design their monthly graphics pack in October of last year. (Oh, and in case you don’t know, I also designed their new logo.)
Rachel (Haute Stock’s amazingly talented founder) and I discuss the theme for each month’s collection, and derive the inspiration for the graphics pack to match it. For example, for our very first month, the theme was pink and grey, and this is the graphics pack I designed:
There are icons, borders, backgrounds, and overlays. Rachel also wanted me to add font suggestions for members to keep in mind when they create their own social media graphics.
I’ve had such a fun time since then, and look forward to designing more of them each month! Sometimes I paint the icons and backgrounds, other sets include digital illustrations. There was a month when we only had various black and gold frames, and another time we had business icons that members can use on their sales pages.
You get such a great deal when you sign up to be a member – you don’t just get amazing images, you also get a graphics pack to match. It was so nice to hear after the latest members’ survey, that people have really found them useful. Can’t wait to create more!
