In times gone by, skilled designers that undertook the monumental task of creating a brand identity for corporate businesses would, as a means of showing their client, typically have to create time-consuming real-world examples of the brand in action.
Nowadays, with the help of Photoshop and Illustrator, we can quickly and painlessly create these ‘real-world’ examples without ever having to leave the office or studio by using pre-designed mockup templates, as we now call them.
Some designers have elevated the art of creating branding mockups to a new level by showcasing pre-branded items, such as business cards, envelopes, headed paper, coffee cups, folders, bags, and many other common office items, in an inspiring and photo-realistic environment.
With branding mockups on the mind, I ventured out into Envato Market to find some of our own examples of realistic and inspiring mockups. And guess what? I discovered lots of them. Here are some of my favorites:
