by Margaret Penney | August 24, 2016
You’ve found the perfect portfolio for your projects now you have to find a way to display your work that is professional and visually appealing. A good quality design mockup is a great way to make your work stand out and present it in the best possible light. Many mockups today are close to photo-realistic and provide an alternate way of presenting print work, especially if you’re not able to take a picture of the final product yourself.
You can find high-quality mockup designs at a reasonable price at sites like Creative Market. If you are on a budget and are just starting out, we’ve gathered some likable mockups that are also free.
