Pushing UX beyond 400M stock images

Known globally for its library of 400+ million stock images, Shutterstock hosts a wide range of digital content including video, 3D, editorial, and audio.

To better communicate the diverse nature of its platform, the company teamed up with the designers and researchers of Agile Design Studio. The results of our collaboration have increased the company’s user engagement and conversions.
