LiveSurface Context is a project by Brooklyn-based Josh Distler. It’s an Adobe Illustrator add-on that renders your flat artwork to a decent range of contextual photos.
I had a go with the free trial. Excellent. And at $9 per month (or $89 for a year) it’s a fair bit cheaper than a stock photography subscription. You can cancel at any time if it’s for a one-off project or occasional use.
All the available contexts are here, and the promo video’s below.
Top work, Josh.
Josh gave me seven codes so you can get the high-res, non-watermarked mockups for free. I’ve got five 1-month codes and two 1-year codes. To enter, share a recent identity project that stood out from another designer or studio (just to add some interest to the comment thread). I’ll randomly draw names next Wednesday (6th November) and email the codes.
Update: Wednesday 06 November
The magnificent seven are Nick Wilmot, Laura Miller, Anthony Schmiedeler, Richard Knobbs, Jess, Steve Perry, and Richard Baird. Codes on their way.
