Our Latest Membership Benefits on Creative VIP (And a 48 Hour Offer!)

In July, we introduced a new membership club for designers and creatives — Creative VIP. Since the launch, we’ve been working hard to increase the collection of exclusive discounts, benefits, and resources offered to members. MediaTemple, FontDeck, GatherContent, PixelKit — the list of benefits for our members keeps growing every week.

It’s been a pleasure getting to know some of our first members over the past few months, and we’ve been thrilled with the response so far. We’d like to give you a quick update on some of our new benefits and discounts today, as well as a one-off, 48 hour discount, if you’re thinking of joining.

We’re proud to recommend Media Temple, and they do a fantastic job of hosting Design Shack, PixelsDaily, and Creative VIP. As a member, you can now save 20% on any Grid or DV package from Media Temple, for the lifetime of your hosting plan.

It’s a pretty great saving, which can quickly amount to hundreds of dollars over the course of a year (not bad for your $5.99/month Creative VIP membership…)
