18 sites where you can download mockups for free
Mockups are almost an obligatory part of any presentation of a design work: be it a logo, website or business card – any design must be shown to the customer not just as a picture, but in a “working form” so that the client can understand how this product will work in the real world.
To achieve this goal, you will need high-quality mockups – the better and more realistic the brochure or advertising on the billboard looks, the more likely the client will understand the design idea and approve the work without edits 🙂
In this article, we have collected 18 sites for you, where you can download free mockups for the presentation of any of your projects.
