Shutterstock acquires PicMonkey to help expand its offering to small businesses, by providing additional tools to non-professionals to elevate their visual content

ce88c8f648c8edae1cfeb848b1e679828dbc42eb-Logo-Red-GrayLeading global creative platform Shutterstock are driving forward with their goal to democratise creativity with the acquisition of PicMonkey, a leading online graphic design and image editing platform that enables creators of any skill level to design high-quality visual assets.

Empowering the creation of professional content by anyone, regardless of design experience, has always been at the heart of Shutterstock’s vision - from startup business owners using presentations to pitch their concept, to large marketing teams creating stand-out campaigns, there is a definitive need among non-designers to create compelling, professional content seamlessly.

The acquisition builds upon Shutterstock’s strategy to expand its offering to small businesses, by providing additional tools to non-professionals for elevating their visual content across a range of platforms.

Stan Pavlovsky, Chief Executive Officer at Shutterstock explains: ”A key element of Shutterstock’s strategy and vision is providing a suite of solutions for the entire creative journey, regardless of experience or expertise level. PicMonkey’s easy-to-use design and editing tools, collaboration features across teams, and robust library of pre-designed templates makes professional publishing assets accessible at scale to anyone, and is expected to allow Shutterstock to enhance and accelerate the delivery of our vision for our customers around the world.”

This acquisition and the integration of the PicMonkey tools will certainly be welcomed by Shutterstock's users - whether they’re a casual creative or a pro designer!
