Creative Market and online design tools

Summary: Here, we’ll talk about a few popular online design tools, and you’ll find out if you can use them with Creative Market products.

It’s becoming easier and easier to create beautiful content with online design tools or mobile apps- without being an experienced designer. Here are some up-and-coming design tools that many of our customers have questions about, and how they might work with Creative Market products.


Creative Market & Canva

Canva offers a library of pre-made assets, photos, backgrounds, and fonts to help you create designs or customize their pre-made templates.

Graphics

By opening a project on Canva, then going to the "Uploads" tab on the bottom left, you will be able to upload your own graphics. Currently, Canva supports graphic uploads in the following formats:

  • JPG
  • PNG
  • SVG

The above formats represent a very small percentage of Creative Market's total offerings, which means that Canva can't support every product Creative Market offers. We highly recommend consulting the product listing page for specific software requirements. Many of our products require special software to use, such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc. Fonts may be installed on any desktop app that uses text.

Fonts

Certain Canva plans support uploading custom fonts. (Please note that we cannot guarantee that the app will support all features (e.g. OpenType features) of all fonts; additionally, Color fonts are not supported.) If you're trying to install or use a font in Canva and are running into an issue, we recommend that you reach out to Canva Support. Here's an article about uploading fonts to Canva.


Creative Market & Picmonkey

Picmonkey is another web-based design app. Currently, users can upload graphics in the following formats:

  • JPG
  • PNG
  • SVG

The above formats represent a very small percentage of Creative Market's total offerings, which means that Picmonkey can't support every product Creative Market offers. We highly recommend consulting the product listing page for specific software requirements. Many of our products require special software to use, such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc. Fonts may be installed on any desktop app that uses text.

Certain subscribers may also upload fonts to Picmonkey. Here’s an article about using your own fonts in Picmonkey. Do note that we cannot guarantee that the app will support all features (e.g. OpenType features) of all fonts. If you're trying to install or use a font in Picmonkey and are running into an issue, we recommend that you reach out to Picmonkey Support.


Creative Market & GoDaddy Studio (formerly Over App)

GoDaddy Studio is a web app design tool for desktop and mobile devices designed to help you create branded content like social media graphics. The mobile app was formerly known as Over. Users can customize pre-made templates and import PNG and JPG graphics. Business subscribers may import their own fonts.

Please note that these formats represent a very small percentage of Creative Market's total offerings, which means that this tool can't support every product Creative Market offers. We highly recommend consulting the product listing page for specific software requirements, since many of our products require special software to use, such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc. We cannot guarantee that this tool will support all features (e.g. OpenType features) of all fonts. If you're trying to install or use a font in GoDaddy Studio and are running into an issue, we recommend that you check out GoDaddy Studio's help center.


Using Creative Market fonts in Web-based Applications

We've seen a host of new web-based design applications and mobile applications pop up in the industry! Some applications- whether they're built for your mobile device or can be run directly in your web browser- can even enable you to create your own designs and text. Some of them even allow you to use fonts that you have installed in your system, or upload custom fonts that you've purchased on Creative Market.

Generally speaking, fonts are best supported by desktop applications that you have installed on your computer, such as Adobe Illustrator or MS Word. Web-based design apps or mobile design apps often don't have extensive type support. Most don't allow you to use certain features of your font, such as swashes and ligatures. Often, a web-app-based design tool may only allow you to use a font's basic character set (A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and punctuation.) You can learn more about the software we recommend that you use with your fonts in this article

If you have installed a font on a web app tool and are running into an issue, we'd recommend reaching out to the support team of that app to troubleshoot the issue further.
