Shutterstock Emerges as the Web’s Leading Source for Vector Art
Shutterstock’s diverse library surpasses more than 1.6 million vectors
Shutterstock®, the leading global provider of stock images and stock footage by subscription, has emerged as a top provider of vector art, offering a diverse collection of more than 1.6 million stock vector images.  

Vector art is becoming increasingly popular among designers, thanks to its ability to speed up the creative process. Unlike raster images, vector art can be easily enlarged without distorting the image. As more designers take advantage of the convenience and quality benefits of vectors, Shutterstock’s affordable subscription packages provide the perfect pipeline of royalty-free stock vectors for every design need.

The company’s commitment to offering the best selection of vector art has drawn high praise from top designers like Jacob Cass, who runs the popular blog Just Creative Design.

"I use vector graphics in my design process because they provide a look and feel that's just not possible with raster-based images," said Cass. "Shutterstock has the best collection of vectors on the web, and that’s why it's the first place I look when I need one."

Every Tuesday, Shutterstock offers a free vector image to anyone who signs up for a browse account.  This week’s vector is a multi-faceted illustration of our planet, concisely titled “Earth.” To download it for free until November 1, click here:

“From early on, we strove to have the best collection of vector art in the stock image industry in order to serve the needs of our creative customer base,” said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock. “We welcome customers to sign up for Shutterstock and enjoy the freedom to download any of our stock images, whether vectors or high-resolution photos and illustrations.”
