Creative Market, a San Francisco, CA-based online marketplace for ready-to-use design assets from independent creators around the world, closed a $7M Series A financing round.
The round was led by Accomplice, with participation from Palm Drive Capital, and angels Patrick Lor, Don Parker and Gabriel Hammond.
The financing completes Creative Market’s spin out from Autodesk, which will retain a minority stake in the newly formed company.
The company will use the funding to further invest in the growth of the marketplace, hire to expand the team and launch new products.
