CMCD, Clement Mok's Award-Winning Royalty-Free Stock Photography Company, Launches the Visual Symbols Library Website.

Business Editors/Photo Editors


CMCD, a San Francisco-based royalty-free stock photography provider, today launched the Visual Symbols Library website at The library comprises over 1,400 high-quality images hand picked by digital design pioneer Clement Mok. Many of the royalty-free images are drawn from the best of his acclaimed image collection (formerly sold as part of PhotoDisc's Object Series), while others are new, never-before-seen images that were selected for their relevance, usefulness, and graphic and conceptual qualities.

"Providing the basics and delivering the best images at the best prices in the industry is the focus of this new service," said Clement Mok, founder and CEO. CMCD's images are designed and selected for their timeless, iconic, and utilitarian qualities. The Visual Symbols Library's "picture dictionary" style is built on the idea that crisp, archetypal imagery is an essential tool for meeting day-to-day design challenges.

All images are created with multiple uses in mind and shot on a seamless white background to allow for maximum sharpness, contrast, and versatility. In addition, helpful usage notes describing an image's historical and cultural context accompany many files. The Library's search functionality allows users to search for images using descriptions, concepts, and associations.

Purchasing images from the Visual Symbols Library is conducted on a subscription basis at A subscription allows you to download 15, 30 or 70 images per year for a flat fee of $299.95, $499.95, or $999.95, respectively. All the images in the Visual Symbols Library are royalty-free, so they can be used again and again. And unlike CMCD's competitors, the Visual Symbols Library provides images at one low price for all resolutions and all usage rights. Prices per image range from $14 to $20 depending on your subscription plan.

The originator of digital royalty-free stock photography, CMCD was founded in 1993 by design pioneer Clement Mok. The company is privately held and is based in San Francisco, California.
