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

A premium (paid) Canva subscription supports custom fonts, but we cannot guarantee that the app will support all features (e.g. OpenType features) of all fonts. Fonts are not supported by the free version of Canva. 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.


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.

Users may also use purchased fonts with their Picmonkey subscription. 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 & Over App

Over is a mobile app designed to help you transform your photos with other graphics and text and customize templates to create content like social media graphics. Users can import PNG and JPG graphics and import their own fonts. Please note that these formats represent a very small percentage of Creative Market's total offerings, which means that Over 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. We cannot guarantee that Over app will support all features (e.g. OpenType features) of all fonts. If you're trying to install or use a font in Over and are running into an issue, we recommend that you reach out to Over Support.


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 or allow you to use special features of your font, like swashes and ligatures. Often, the app 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 one of these web-based apps and are running into an issue, we'd recommend reaching out to the support team of that app to troubleshoot the issue further.
