Conceptual Imagery = when the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns.
Creative work is hard to make and hard to source, everything is about innovation and deeper thinking.
When it comes to producing a creative document, imagery is obviously key, and depending on your audience, conceptual imagery may be a need.
But it isn't easy to find, sometimes the images are too small or too big or just the wrong shade of blue and it can feel so time consuming.
When starting at university last year, one of my favourite sites to use was paternity, but they have since added restrictions on their site for non-members meaning you can't access it all.
So, this year I have had to scout out the very best sites for all varieties of conceptual imagery and now I'm going to share them with you, because I now know how much time I would have been saved had someone done the same thing.
