As we begin the year, I'm more than thrilled to announce that LottieFiles has acquired the design assets marketplace, Iconscout.
It's rare for two teams to have a similar drive, mission, and culture. After a few jamming sessions with Dalpat, Varun, Tarun, and their team, it was evident that it would unleash a ton of possibilities for the design ecosystem at large if both sides were to come together.
Last year, we spent six months working together, whiteboarding, and envisioning the future. We learned two things a.) We all enjoy and share a similar sense of humor :) and b.) we both geek out trying to make apps and platforms come alive and bring together intuitive tools for both the designers and developers.
For Iconscout Users and Contributors:
- Iconscout will continue to live and thrive as an independent platform, and we will work towards making your experience even better. You might have already noticed a few changes with the new look and tools on the platform.
- For all Sellers and Contributors of the Iconscout Marketplace, this means broader reach for your creators to all LottieFiles users and enterprises that are always on the lookout for incredible creative assets. Thank you for your incredible work; we will do our absolute best to boost your earnings, reach more users on your behalf, enhance the buying process, and continuously reach out to you with specific requirements. Upwards and Onwards.
For LottieFiles Users and Contributors:
- With Iconscout, You now have access to one of the largest collections of design assets; over 2.2 million icons, illustrations, 3D graphics, with more assets added each week. We will soon be bringing the Lottie Marketplace to this mix; this means a more premium selection and choice of assets to play with, learn from, and re-use.
- For sellers and contributors of the LottieFiles Marketplace, this means an even bigger reach, exposure, and introducing Lottie to many new users. On a more personal note, we would like to express our genuine appreciation to every contributor who made Lottie Marketplace possible.
- Iconscout also comes packed with a wide range of tools, integrations, and plugins for the most popular platforms, including Adobe, Sketch, Figma, and many more.
This coming year, we have many plans on what the future roadmap entails on both Iconscout and LottieFiles independently as platforms and when certain features are shared. If you have suggestions, do feel free to drop in a line to us on Discord.
Please join us in welcoming Iconscout to the LottieFiles family.
With love to the entire Design and Developer community.
