Hello World!: Introducing the All-New Shutterstock Blog

Today, we are thrilled to share our new blog design with you, and wanted to highlight a few things you can look forward to — including an improved user interface, fresh content, and new destinations.

User Interface

Here at Shutterstock, when it comes to User Experience, we take content pretty seriously. Wherever possible, we strive to let the content be the navigation, whether that content is the perfect image for your project or an inspirational series on the blog, our goal is to help you discover what you’re looking for as intuitively as possible. We knew our blog was in need of a serious facelift, so after months of hard work, designing, planning, building, and tweaking, here we are. We hope our new mosaic-inspired interface (which you may recognize from our Labs products) helps you discover the inspiration and information you’re looking for quickly and easily.

Fresh Content

This new platform will allow us to better showcase images and galleries from our collection; new tutorials; cool company news, like our Dropbox integration or our Facebook partnership; guest posts from creative Influencers like John Maeda; and more. We see this as a new platform with which to innovate and experiment more on your behalf, and to push our own boundaries, to show all that you can do with the Shutterstock library.

New Destinations

We want it to be easier to find what you’re looking for and gain more inspiration along the way. We now have a dedicated section for Tips & Tricks, with great tutorials about design, video, and creative business. We’ve also organized a lot of your favorite articles and series into an “Inspirationsection, where you’ll find our latest takes on the intersections of design, film, and pop culture, as well as articles that focus on our remarkable and talented artists. There’s a new section that takes you inside Shutterstock, for a look at company news, culture, and internal buzz. And you’ll find new homes for our branded programs, including Pixels of Fury and Shutterstock Stories.

And that’s not all. The new design is responsive, too — so go ahead, look on your tablet, phone, or laptop! Soon, we’ll be bringing you more languages and exciting new blog series, as well.

Congratulations to all the team members who helped make this a reality. Please share your feedback and suggestions, and we’ll keep evolving to better serve and inspire you!
