In This Case a Picture is Worth More Than a Thousand Words


They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Many times we are in need of effective imagery so that we can portray our client’s brands and services in a positive light.  Sometimes we might need a vector element or icon that we don't have time to create from scratch, or maybe a texture that can add subtly to spruce up a layout.  Thankfully, for times like these, we have the wonderful world of stock photography.

A twitter buddy of mine, and colleague Todd Arena has recently launched an easy to search stock image agency, Arena Creative. What's different about his agency is that his artists are receiving a generous compensation of over 50%, unlike many other stock agencies who offer miniscule commissions. Arena Creative is not the biggest stock agency, but they focus on quality over quantity, and personalized customer service

Todd is trying to get the word out about their growing image collection, and I wanted to help a fellow entrepreneur. He's generously offered to giveaway a free 1 month subscription, good for up to 25 high resolution photos or vector downloads. Arena Creative’s stock imagery is simple to navigate and loads very fast compared to other stock photo sites.  With thousands of unique, royalty-free, stock images to choose from, you won’t have a problem finding some awesome art elements and lifestyle imagery to use in your upcoming projects. 

All you have to do to win the free 1 month subscription is leave a comment after this post with your email address (you@email dot com). Just check back in next Tuesday for the winner announcement in a new blog post. In the meantime, you can use promo code IGOTTHEHOOKUP for 10% off any total non-subscription stock imagery purchase. See arenacreative.com for details. Enjoy!
