Update for 2016: 2016 Black Friday deals compilation post. If you have any deals to add including your own, please email me!
Below I’ve compiled some of the best online Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for graphic designers, web designers and geeks at heart, plus some other great sales too!
I personally use / interact with all of these products and companies on a regular basis and can vouch for their awesomeness. I wouldn’t recommend them otherwise.
If you have your own deal to share please do so in the comments below and I’ll update the post with the deal in its own section as the weekend goes on.
Update: Udemy’s Black Friday sale was the most popular sale event from Black Friday in 2015, and for 2016 I’ve updated the link to reflect their new sale. For 2016, Udemy is offering all of their courses for just $10, increasing by $1 every 48 hours, for this week only, meaning you can save hundreds while leveling up your skills!
So have a browse through their 40,000 courses and learn a new skill today. You get lifetime access once enrolled.
The Creative Course by Paul Jarvis – $100 off!
Paul Jarvis is a creative I’ve been following for a number of years now and although he wears many hats, he really excels at helping other freelancers become better, especially on the business side. He has an amazing course called The Creative Class that teaches you clients, pricing, business and much more. You can get $100 off the course with the coupon ‘justcreative’.
Get $500 worth of top Mac software for $79 (or $49 if you’re an existing parallels subscriber). This pack includes Parallels, Evernote Premium, 1Password, Pocket Premium, Snag It, Camtasia and PDFpenpro. Please note I have not personally used PDFpenPro so can’t vouch for this product.
Get the most extensive mockup template bundle of all time. It includes stationery, products, packaging, brochures, books, devices, and more. For $29, that’s 98% off. Stay tuned for more quality deals from them even after Black Friday! That’s their speciality after all.
If you’re after short and sweet courses to up your skills as a designer, developer, photographer, etc, you can grab a free month subscription with this great deal.
