20 Creative Shutterstock Photos for Your Designs

Design was once a creative field open only to those with special artistic talent, capable of formulating a work of art from a simple idea and concept. With the progress in time and technology however, design is slowly becoming a field and exercise allowing and inviting creative and innovative individuals who do not necessarily possess any particular artistic talent and skill. Perhaps this is one of those matters that create the divide between design and fine art.

While art allows for innate and pure freedom of expression often on a personal and emotional level, design permits and somewhat demands the unbiased and somewhat technical view, analysis and approach to visual dynamics and communication. For this reason, the scope is broadening for innovative thinkers and their contributions to effective design. We find that today there are active and successful designers and developers employing or purchasing the visual works of other artists or designers so that they can be legally and effectively incorporated into their work. This allows for their work to have a sense of the same quality of visual art had an artist been an active part of the project without really feeling the need for one.

Shutterstock is a website that presents itself to the world of global media, commercialism, communication, development and alas, design, as an extensive online database of thousands upon thousands of high resolution images available for the legal use of companies, brands and individuals. While Shutterstock requires a paid subscription in their name, once you are an active subscriber, a multitude of images of all themes and categories are made available to your for use as you deem fit. The images are directly downloadable in various high resolution sizes and types including in the form of design, illustrations and photography.

We have collected for you a few examples of creative Shutterstock photos below, have a look and see if they suit your project best.

Note: You can’t publish these images on your site, you have to purchase them from ShutterStock.
