Web Dummies: 50 Free (& Lovely) PSD Mock Ups

DT_Cat_WebDummies

As a graphic designer, we all know how different a design looks when seen on a computer screen versus on a real-life application. Plus, most importantly, clients truly enjoy visualizing their brands and websites in a realistic setting. So, instead of spending time and money printing test-designs, there are digital mockups that create the same visual.

This process is actually quite simple when working with pre-set PSD files. Simply: download the PSD file, open it on Photoshop, and drop your designs into the layers that are pre-set for it. The PSD file does the rest!

Below are examples of free Photoshop PSD files that you can easily edit and present your clients with a (almost) tangible product. Like what you see? Download your favorites here – 50 Free PSD Mock Ups:

Design Love: Beautiful Package Designs

DT2014_DesignLove1

Gosh, I love packaging design. I really do. I mean, what is there not to love? Plus it’s one of the most important – if not THE most important – parts of marketing a product. Because we all know, if something doesn’t look attractive, then we most likely won’t grab it from the store shelf. And that’s the truth! Keep that in mind. When selling a product (or even a service) it’s all about presentation and appearances. I suggest you follow “The Cool Rule” (yes, I just made up that title) and that is that: “Even if you have the coolest business idea ever, but you’re branding isn’t cool, then people won’t think it’s cool and might never actually buy it.” Like that rule? I hope so, because that as well is the truth! Ok, enough silly – but true – talk. Let the inspiration begin. Here are 10 of my favorites from the top 50. See all 50 via the link at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!



Simply Bliss: sleek & minimal, but still lets the consumer know exactly what they are getting at the first glance. In my eyes, this is design-perfection!



Waitrose: breaking away from the conventional “paper” label, this is a great way to show the contents of the item while still keeping the design fresh.



12 Inches: who says there’s a right way to wrap a bottle? this style is eye-catching and the typography is fabulous!



Font Vella: clear and blue, showcasing the pureness of the water, while delicately designed with an almost paisley feel. It works very well together.



Absolut: a big name brand with clean-cut style. Never shifting from their branding techniques, yet always coming up with a new engaging look.



Coca-Cola: another brand giant, with simple taste. This summer collection stands them apart from other soda’s on the shelf, and it’s easy to see why.



Citro: little mints in little packages with a little window. With minimal yet matching colors and attention to the “flavor,” I believe they nailed it.



Project 7 (Water Bottles): hand-written type is amazing, and the way it’s executed here is exactly right. Simple but fun, showing each bottle’s meaning.



Project 7 (Snacks): continuing the hand-written feel, but incorporating more color and heavy text; but they still get you to focus on the important headlines.



Oats: Sweet and sleek design that just feels right for bath soaps. It gives off the vibe of warm but still modern and new. A perfect mix!
