We are excited to share that Shutterstock has created a new brand called Offset, featuring a curated collection of extraordinary imagery. Offset is aimed at disrupting the marketplace for high-end content, and offers authentic, sophisticated imagery and a simple, transparent licensing model. We’re working with some of the best assignment photographers, illustrators and collections from around the world, and continue to source new imagery to add to the collection. Offset is currently in private beta, and will be rolling out access over the coming weeks and months. To request an invitation, visit Offset.com.

In the meantime, we invite you to watch our video, below. We’ve also included a few photos from Offset’s preview event in New York City last night. A huge, heartfelt thank you to all those who turned out in support of Shutterstock and Offset, and to Melee Media for helping us with every detail of our first ever live-curating art exhibition.
