Best Graphic Design Templates

Graphic design templates are a handy thing to have in your design back pocket. From logo templates to product mockups, design templates can help take pressure off designers on a deadline. They also equip others with more limited design knowledge to, for example, extend their content across web pages, social media and flyers, while ensuring all designs stay on-brand.

Templates for Graphic Designers

But do graphic designers use templates? Yes - graphic design templates can make short work of day-to-day design tasks, giving flexibility and agility when it comes to taking up briefs and getting new projects off the ground. 

To save extra time and money on your design outlay without selling short your ideas at pitch stage, there are also a host of mock up styles and packs to choose from – and you can browse them in our round up of the biggest Mockup Trends for 2020 and beyond. To further bulk out your creative kit, look to this Ultimate Creative Toolkit for designers – which features a handy stock of tools for video, design, illustration, marketing and photography.

Graphic Design Templates

But here, with a nod to the design styles we picked to make waves in 2020 (see our top graphic design trends predictions wrap up), we look at 10 of the best graphic design templates available on Envato Elements right now.

10. Resume Template

No matter your industry, a clean and modern CV can be the difference between landing the interview or not – and when you’re time-poor, a template is the ideal way to give an existing resume a fresh and professional look. The Audrey CV and Resume by Vunira is simple and sleek, and easily adaptable to your personal needs.

9. Social Media Pack

Continuing the design ethos of less is more, the Monochrome Instagram Post and Instagram Story by dannyaldana is highly versatile for a polished social media presence. With 10 post templates and 10 story templates, this pack makes it quick and easy to customize and feel confident in last-minute content.

8. Presentation Template

With a great idea, it’s important to have a presentation to match – one that will lift your delivery, encourage sharing, drive home your key message or spotlight the mic-drop moment in your pitch.

A logo sets the tone and pace for your brand, and Letterpress Logo Mockup by graphiccrew also gives you a perfect place to display it.

In many cases, your logo will be your consumer's first touchpoint with your brand, making that all-important first impression, so it's important you select the right logo template. Whether you need a text-based, image-based or combination logo, you can use our Guide to Logo Design to help you along.

5. iPhone Mockup

As we said earlier, mock ups can be invaluable in selling your idea at that all-importance pitch. Isometric iPhone – Mockup by GraphicGata features four mockups, with organized layers and a basic guide, making it super easy to edit and change the color, design and background.

4. Business Card

It can be tricky to straddle the line between original and professional when it comes to designing an eye catching, but not over the top or overloaded business card. Business Card by Last40 is bold and fun, while still keeping it clean. It's easy to edit and appropriate for personal branding, identity, corporate name cards, business cards or any other marketing purposes.

3. Email Signature

The humble email signature should never be overlooked or underestimated – a design template can make it super easy for your team to be in sync, presenting your brand in a coordinated and seamless way. Creative Email Signature V02 by telllu does just the trick, with four multipurpose templates with adjustable colors, text and font.

2. Poster Template

The old school flyer still has its place in marketing collateral – adding a touch of the nostalgic printed poster to your product launch or event. Double Exposure Film Poster by SetiadiKaryaPertiwi is an especially good example, lending classic big-screen hype to your flyer design.

1. Social Media Pack

Social media is a place where fast moving content is king, and when you need to get your pages up and running quick-smart, a template is your friend. Pastel Social Media Pack by MotionMediaGroup is perfect for creating banners across Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and VK in pale shades of grey, green, pink and gold.
