Presenting a project to a client is often a stressful endeavor because as designers, we put so much of ourselves into our work. We’re resourceful people with creative intentions. We want our artistic vision to be understood, to be seen as remarkable, and most importantly, we need our work to stand out as the very best choice a client can make.
It’s a tall order, and it’s one of the reasons why the use of mockups is so important in this industry. Humans are visual creatures and when it comes to conveying a concept, mockups give designers the perfect way to show clients exactly how their logos will look on merchandise, how an image will appear on a mobile device screen, or demonstrate how a design will be viewed in any real-world setting.
A design seen in context will instantly carry more weight than one without, and that’s the main idea behind Forgraphic’s product line on YouWorkForThem. A small band of graphic designers and professional photographers are the driving force behind Forgraphic, a company whose mission is to supply the graphic design world with the means to craft beautiful and professional presentations with ease.
Pairing top-quality, high-resolution photography with Photoshop’s Smart PSD technology, Forgraphic’s products make it a snap to seamlessly add your design work to “real world” settings and objects. With these powerful tools in hand, you’ll spend a fraction of the time creating mockups while displaying your work in an innovative, attractive, and sophisticated presentation.
One of Forgraphic’s latest releases is Corporate Stationery Mockup, a series of 60 objects commonly found in a corporate setting, including envelopes, file folders, binders, discs, sticky-note pads, business cards, writing utensils, mobile devices, spiral notebooks, and name tag lanyards, among others. The black and white theme lends a crisp and modern feel to any visual presentation, putting your designs on brilliant display.
The subject of each photo is fully separated from its shadow by a separate layer, allowing you to move and adjust it however you need. Adding a graphic is easy: with the file open in Photoshop, select the Smart Object from the Layers panel to insert your design. You can control everything, including any background you wish to add, and you can mix and match objects to build a completely unique design that highlights a variety of concepts all at once.
Corporate Stationery Mockup includes ten PSD files with 60 different items, 6000×4000px in 300dpi. The high resolution of these images allows for crisp clarity in both small-scale and large-scale displays and presentations.
This set is a brilliant way to share your ideas with business clients. If you’re looking for some “fontspiration” for corporate design projects, we suggest you start with Integral CF, Trenda, URW Geometric Extended, Couplet CF, CocoBiker, Uni Neue, and Sequel Sans. These are just a few of the hundreds of strong corporate fonts available on YouWorkForThem; we make licensing a painless process so you can get back to focusing on your work.
Forgraphic currently offers five products through YouWorkForThem, featuring additional mockup themes for cosmetics and barber supplies, apparel, food packages, and coffee products. Visit their portfolio to view their gallery and bookmark it so you can keep an eye on their future additions!
