Healthcare organizations must hate apples. Think about it. The slogan of the apple suggests that eating just one a day "keeps the doctor away." Real nice, apple people. Most healthcare organizations don't have that level of built-in publicity. And, with the world's collective fear of needles being what it is, medical care companies already have the slipped discs stacked against them.

How can healthcare providers rise above the noise of a tree-fruit-chomping public? How can they stick out in a world filled with supplements, juice cleanses, and those aforementioned apples? Marketing. Fun, attention-grabbing, take-a-deep-breath-and-hold-it marketing.

We found some inspired healthcare graphics and icons in our royalty-free collection to help market these medical marvels. They're colorful, friendly, and instantly downloadable. Set up some time and check them out.

"Do your best, not someone else's." These words were uttered by a Yogi I encountered several years ago. He had noticed his students were looking at one another to ensure they were doing certain yoga moves correctly. Well, the Yogi wasn't having it, and he encouraged his class to focus only on their own movements. He asserted this quotable bit of wisdom authoritatively - yet calmly - as Yoga instructors do. The class commenced with each student honing in on his/her own goals, attempting to achieve their own level of Zen.

Luckily, here at Bigstock, we have millions of royalty-free yoga graphics and icons for all kinds of design endeavors. This variety helps keep your own marketing assets truly unique and on brand (or on your client's brand). So, take a deep breath, focus, do your best, and download away.

Organic and all natural are words thrown around often with association to healthy foods and marketplaces, but little did you know, that it's actually the font that tells us whether or not they're actually legit. Just kidding, but fonts do play a role.

Our ability and desire to read something is often affected by the way in which it's written. Is your font clear, cohesive, and visually appealing? When it comes to fonts, type, and styles for organic products, there's a certain appearance to them. Much like the products they're promoting fonts for organic markets are often clean, fresh, and beautifully earthy. 

A quick browse through our collection of royalty-free images brought forth ... fruitful results that just might help you in your next marketing adventure, particularly if it's at all organic and nature oriented. Below are some of our most-favorite produce-promoting picks. Enjoy.

Here in New York City, our sidewalks are paved with hungry passersby. They're also paved with welcome mats into numerous restaurants and other dining establishments. It seems every time we turn around, a new diner or cafe is opening up.

With ever-growing dining options popping up all over, the importance of having a specific style for your restaurant's design graphics and icons is more essential than ever. From napkins to awnings, restaurant owners have a lot to consider in their plight to stand out from the crowd and to stay true to their brand. And one of those key marketing assets is their menu.

We devoured our graphic and icon collections for these restaurant design necessities, and proudly present some of our favorites below. Each image is royalty-free and ready for downloading. Bon appetit!

On June 26th, 2015, over five hundred people attended the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, California. Most of the twenty-seven canine contestants were former shelter dogs, raising awareness of the need for "furever" homes (one of the benefits of this competition). The winning pooch, Quasi Modo, received a check for $1500, and will soon be whisked off to New York on a media tour followed by a makeover on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

This is all very well and good - and congrats, Quasi - but here at Bigstock we don't believe there is such a thing as an ugly dog. We believe in finding the beauty in every beast. So, without further ado, we proudly present the most "non-traditionally gorgeous" dogs in our royalty-free photo collection. Enjoy.

When you think about it, the hipster dad, as a concept, makes a lot of sense. The relaxed plaid shirt provides camouflage for baby stains of all sorts. The beard saves oodles of face-shaving time, time that can be better spent changing diapers and helping the kiddos with homework. Here at Bigstock, we felt it was high time hipster dads get a Father's Day shout out.

Please Note: Father's Day is this Sunday. To celebrate, we compiled these inspired royalty-free Father's Day illustrations for DIY cards for your hipster dad. Each one is available for downloading. Happy Father's Day!

Bigstock is on Instagram. It's true. We are + we love it. During one of our recent Instagram adventures, we couldn't help but fall in love with a few trends, some of which we'll be highlighting here in the coming months. For our first Instagram installment, we're kicking things off with color.

In the spirit of all things warm, lovely, and summer-like, we want to give a special shout out to those Instagrammers who seek out and showcase the bright bits of the worlds around them. Browse through some of our favorite Instagram color lovers, and give 'em a follow if you want to add a little color to your life. 

1. HAPPYMUNDANE

An art director with a keen eye for "mundane aesthetics" and lively colors, Jonathan Lo's happymundane Instagram account is sure to surprise you with its big bursts of color. It may even inspire you to start looking at otherwise simple aesthetics in your own day-to-day photo expeditions.

 

2. WARBYPARKER 

This eyewear brand is known for their classic looks. It was great to discover how well they convey their style on their social media platforms as well. Warby Parker's Instagram account beautifully captures rich and colorful tones, all the while reminding us why we love WP's style so much in the first place. 

 

3. OHDEARDELGADO 

We came across Peter Delgado's ohdeardelgado Instagram account through some random word of mouth, and we're so glad we did. We love the way he uses bright accents and light to show unexpected layers of color. Neons and highlights aplenty can be found over on his IG feed. Check him out.

 

4. LIFESERIAL 

We all love-hate that overused quip, "We want to go to there." (Sorry, Tina.) But, in the case of Matt Allard's lifeserial Instagram account, we'll use it one more time. (We love you, Tina.) Lush LA locales, cool blue skies and bodies of water, and bright, quirky tattoos are just some of the colorful objects of desire on Allard's feed.

 

5. REFINERY29

It's hard not to love Refinery29's Instagram account. Even if you're not color obsessed, they've got everything from smiles to puppies to food. On top of all that, their color game is on point. Brace yourself for high fashion shots and some seriously bold and beautiful color blocking.  

 

6. DIANEBONDAREFF

Diane Bondareff is an event photographer who has a keen eye for celebrities and candid moments. Her extraordinary dianebondareff Instagram account showcases some truly inspired shots. The gorgeous colors - of which there are a lot - are so beautifully rich, you may not even notice the famous faces behind them. 

 

7. SAINTRECORDS 

Solange Knowles' SaintRecords Instagram account is a combination of her own style, the way she sees the world, and a sampling of the art direction she does for Puma. In her work with the footwear-fashion brand, she more than manages to bring her own realized, lively taste to the final products (and pics). 

 

8. COLORUBEN (RUBEN DE HAAS)

Ruben De Haas coloruben's Instagram will appeal to those who love type, graphic design, and color. De Haas balances perfect juxtapositions, as you can see from these highlights below. While the text in his images is precise and boldly unique, the colors add a splash of quirk and wit.

 

9. IMPAKTER

A magazine with a deep mission to bridge generational gaps for global good, Impakter's Instagram account is both inspirational and on point with its agenda. The mag's brand equation Culture + Style + Society + Philanthropy is matched by a colorful, artistic, and worldly collection of images on its IG feed.

 

10. FOOD52 

If you're a foodie, chances are you already follow Food52's Instagram account. But even if you're not, Food52 is an exemplary account of how to pay attention to the way colors sit on a canvas. Fun details - like a photo of three tomatoes simulating a traffic light - bring us immense joy. It's the little things that often make a big splash on IG.

We hope you'll follow all of these color-loving leaders, tastemakers, and Instagram gurus, and learn from their inspirational feeds. Oh, and we hope you'll follow us on Instagram too. Thanks! 

Here are some of our most recent pics.

Stock image of summer scene at Cape Cod. 

Mentally, we're already on the beach. Now that spring has come and gone, our minds have checked out of our respective urban landscapes, and have begun drifting onto bigger, better, warmer, and sandier things. That's right, it's summer and the ocean wants to be around your body, barbecued goodies want to be in your mouth, and beaches want to be your landscape. Can you hear them calling your name?

The best part is you don't really have to travel very far to answer this coastal call. There are great beaches right here, in the good old US of A. Below, you'll find a brilliant royalty-free photo sampling of  some of our favorites from coast to coast. Hopefully they'll inspire a vacation in your future to achieve supreme chill status. 

Each image is available for downloading. Enjoy.

1. FORT LAUDERDALE, FL

According to Fort Lauderdale's government website, there were approximately 5 million attendees at this beach in the last year, so it's fair to say that it's quite the destination. If you're looking for an excuse to get out there, maybe time your getaway with one of their big beach events. A Surf and Turf (1/2 mile run, 1/2 mile swim) event held annually, perhaps? Or maybe a boat race? More opportunities can be found here.

 

2. MALIBU, CA

Did you know that Martin Sheen was named honorary mayor of Malibu in 1989? The famous district is home to a variety of beaches including: Zuma, Topanga, Surfrider, County Line, Point Dume, and others. 

 

3. CAPE COD, MA

Cape Cod is home to some of the most pristine and quintessential New England summer homes. On the Cape, you'll have access to a variety of beaches, plus all the cutest little town shops your heart could ever desire. Say hello to homemade fudge, ice cream, trinkets, and more. With over 25 beaches to choose from on Cape Cod, you may need to make a whole summer of it.

 

4. KEY WEST, FL 

If you're trying to get some snorkeling action into your vacation but don't want to travel too far, Key West may be a perfect destination for you. The beaches that exist in Key West, in particular, are far more ideal for underwater exploration because of the large amount of coral. (It's home to the third largest coral reef in the world.)

 

5. MIAMI BEACH, FL

Besides the celebrity scene, art deco, and all of the bikini-clad women on rollerblades you're likely to find here, you'll also come across some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Interestingly enough, the entire island that is Miami Beach was man made. The area used to be a coconut grove plantation until it was transformed into the island beach destination that it is today.

 

6. SANTA MONICA, CA

Come for the shopping, stay for the beaches. Located along California's famous Pacific Coast Highway, the 3.5 mile long beach offer visitors any number of activities, including surfing, volleyball, swimming, and stand up paddle board. Visit the Santa Monica Pier (which is over 100 years old) and venture towards the International Chess Park, just south of the Pier's volleyball courts. If you happen to get the urge of run across the beach in slow motion, it may be because this beach served as the location for the now-classic TV series, Baywatch.

 

7. OUTER BANKS (OBX), NC 

The North Carolina Outerbanks are ripe with history and sights along with its amazing beaches and weather. You'll find the state's shortest lighthouse there, which also happens to be the second oldest (still functioning) lighthouse in the US. You're also most likely to find and catch Atlantic Blue Marlin off this coast. If fishing isn't your thing, perhaps you'll spot one of the more than 400 different species of bird that dwell there.

 

8. SOUTH PADRE ISLANDS, TX

South Padre Islands are located in Texas and are appealing not only for their beautiful beaches, but for their ideal summer temperatures. You'll discover - along the 34 miles of beaches - that South Padre has something to offer the entire family in terms of entertainment or fun. If you're exploring solo, maybe try for a water activity like parasailing or jet skiing.

 

9. NAPLES, FL

Naples was voted Best Beach in the United States by the Travel Channel back in 2005, but it's hardly resting on that accolade. Don't miss its pristine and clean white sand, ten miles of beach, and all kinds of sights to see in or around the beach itself. The stunning photo above shows Naples' Fishing Pier, one of its most famous landmarks. 

 

10. LAKE MICHIGAN

The sands on Michigan beaches are often referred to as "singing sands" which is a term that comes from the squeaking noise that the sand makes when walked on. This is due to the high content of quartz. The water can be anywhere from 55 to 80 degrees, even in the hotter months, and visitors will notice high sand dunes all over the "third coast" area. (Referred to as such, after the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.)

 

11. HONOLULU, HI

If you're visiting Honolulu, you're likely there for the beaches. Waikiki Beach might be a good place to start. In the 1800s, it was known as a retreat for Hawaiian royalty, where they would escape to enjoy surf activities. (The name Waikiki is defined as "spouting fresh water" in Hawaiian.) This gorgeous image has us saying, "Aloha" for sure.

In terms of nightlife, food, music, and biking, Berlin is where it's at. Along with Amsterdam, Germany's capital is known throughout Europe as a particularly bike-friendly city. So, if you're planning to visit any time soon, maybe consider incorporating a bike trip or two into your schedule? 

You'll find some of my picks and tips below on where to go biking around Berlin. Check out our curated Berlin lightbox at the bottom of the post for even more traveling inspiration. 

Each image is royalty-free and available for downloading - some for editorial use (only).

1. Treptower Park

Visit the Soviet War Memorial for some quick history and education, as well as a beautifully scenic ride. The memorial was built to commemorate deaths of the Soviets in World War II, which simultaneously functions as a cemetery for those killed. It functions as the central war memorial for East Germany. 

 

2. Belvedere auf dem Klausberg/Sanssouci Park

The castle that sits in Sanssouci Park makes for a romantic and elegant picnic retreat, particularly by bike. Not too far from Berlin, Sanssouci Park has plenty of hedges, clipped trees, classic structures, and lush green to post up and enjoy a nice day. Any number of structures make for excellent photo opportunities, including the New Palace. Chinese House, Orangery Palace, and more. 

 

3. Beelitz

Home to the military hospital that treated Hitler and Honecker for injuries that were sustained in World War I, it's said that the remaining structures are ... haunted. If that doesn't stop you (good!), there's tons to explore both inside and outside. Use your discretion when trying to get into buildings though, as some are easier to get into than others.

 

4. Landwehrkanal

A popular destination for socializing, the canal connects the Eastern Harbor in Friedrichshain to Charlottenburg, all the while traveling through Kreuzberg and Tiergarten. The canal was built by Peter Joseph Lenné, with sloped walls and controlled water depths. It's used mainly for the purpose of tourist boating and other forms of water craft. Be sure to pedal on by!

 

5. The Berlin Wall

Most who travel to Berlin (or even those who don't) know of the Berlin Wall and its history. Built by the German Democratic Republic, it served as a barrier between West Berlin and East Germany, from 1961 to 1989. It's technical size was roughly 96 miles and now, parts of the wall can be found in museums, hotels, and universities all over the world.

Sometimes a good bike and a good city is all you need to have an adventure. Most of the time, you don't even need the bicycle. But isn't it great when you're in a city for the very first time and can actually feel safe about traversing its streets? Amsterdam is known for being a fantastically bike safe city, and we thought that's a good enough reason to feature it for our latest City Spotlight post. 

Scroll through to discover what Amsterdam has to offer on two wheels. All of the images in this collection can be downloaded royalty-free!

This  is one of the newer bridges of Amsterdam, built in 2001. The Python Bridge went on to win the International Footbridge Award in 2002.

Image of Windmill in Amsterdam by kavalenkava volha A break from the urban streets might be good for your lungs, and the windmills are a perfect excuse to get some fresh air. They sit along lush green landscapes and were once an omnipresent part of life in Holland. And though there were once 10,000 windmills all over the Netherlands, only eight remain in Amsterdam.
