Creative Market is an online marketplace for community-generated design assets. The company sells fonts, graphics, illustrations, mockups, icons, templates, web themes, stock photography, and other digital goods for use by web creatives. Creative Market has over 10 million users and more than 10 million purchasable items, available both as single purchases and as part of a monthly subscription offering.[citation needed] It was founded in 2012 by Aaron Epstein, Chris Williams, and Darius A. Monsef IV in San Francisco, California.[2]

Initially, Creative Market went through three investment rounds, raising funds from notable Silicon Valley investors including 500 Startups, Y Combinator, CrunchFund, SV Angel, and Alexis Ohanian.[3] In February 2014, the company was acquired by American multinational software corporation Autodesk for an undisclosed amount.[4]

In 2017, Creative Market raised $7 million in a Series A financing round to spin out from Autodesk.[5] In 2020, Creative Market was acquired by Dribbble Holdings, directly owned by Tiny.[6] As of 2023, Creative Market Labs Inc. runs an independent operation that includes creativemarket.com, fontspring.com, and associated properties.[citation needed]
