Freepik is an image bank with its own production company that offers more than 25 million graphic resources. Among the visual content produced and distributed by the online platform, you can find photographs, PSDs, illustrations, and vectors. The platform works under a freemium model, which means that users can access much of the content for free, but it is also possible to purchase a subscription with advantages such as access to more exclusive resources, the option of not attributing the content used, or a higher number of daily downloads.
Freepik was founded in 2010 in Malaga with the idea of providing free graphic resources to designers around the world. The Spanish stock image platform is used by several million users, including multinationals such as Microsoft, FedEx, Amazon and Spotify.
The platform is part of the Freepik Company, a company that has been chosen by the Financial Times as one of the thirty fastest-growing companies on the European continent. Also, Freepik Company is the parent brand of 4 other creative platforms: Flaticon, Slidesgo, Story Set, and Wepik.
