Hero header images containing various office peripherals and everyday objects are becoming increasingly popular, particularly for design agency and portfolio websites. Following this trend can be time consuming and requires some pretty swish photography equipment, but there are some shortcuts in the form of PSD mockup templates. In today’s post I round up a mixture of free and premium templates with ready made tabletop scenes that can be customised to quickly produce a cool hero image for your website design.

Free Hero Image Mockup Templates

Everybody loves freebies! These mockup templates are all available for free, but the selection is pretty limited. This might be because the trend is still quite new, or that these templates take considerable time to create. If you can’t find a style you like, there’s plenty of premium templates available.

Premium Hero Image Mockup Templates

If none of the free templates take your fancy, there’s a nice range of affordable premium mockups available. These premium alternatives often come with many more options than the freebies, so they’re great value for money. Plus, it’s nice to know you’re supporting fellow designers with a little passive income!

    Some really nice hero images there Chris. I’m more of a fan of designing your own, but if you haven’t got the time or equipment this is a great alternative way.

    • It’s definitely a time saver!

    • Yes, I designed my own hero image that truly reflects who I am as a creative and the tools I use.

      It took about a couple of hours to set everything up and get it all straight and then to be able to shoot without a high-end studio setup so it looks half-decent.

      Don’t want to just to post a link to the image here as it’s naked self promotion but if anybody is interested in having a look please email me – unless Chris wants me to post it here of course.

  2. the first design is so good

  7. Sam says:

    Another way to do this is to find an image gallery that supports HTML 5 / CSS 3 which allows you to dynamically place items on the image. Almost like you’re moving items on the image. It’s a very nice effect.

  8. Derek says:

    Awesome, that’s exactly what I was looking for a website project!

  9. Again a very nice post, I like Free Creativity Bundle, it’s really awesome but other all are also good.
