4vector.com is back once again with a fresh new list of 21 poster mockups that will completely blow your mind! For those of you who have no idea what a “mockup” is – think of it as a digital prototype of your final design before printing it out on paper (or whatever medium it is that you’re using). You would ask, why go through the trouble of designing the poster and then placing it into these prototypes instead of printing them out?
It’s simple: 1) You will get a better idea of how your final design would actually look, and if your designer’s instinct is telling you to change the color or font, you can edit it right away without wasting papers and ink, hence 2) you save money and the environment!
Besides, you can also use these free PSD layouts to showcase your artwork professionally on your portfolio or even Behance / Dribbble too 😉
