Freebie: Level Up Your Desktop With Custom Folder Icons

We have an exciting free digital download for you, boss babes! This is the first freebie we’ve released exclusively at Shop Lovet Agency and it’s yours for the taking. 

When Founder & CEO Sayeh Pezeshki became a professional brand designer, she made sure she incorporated pleasing aesthetics into every aspect of her life; not just for her clients. Her home is beautifully decorated and her work desktop screams I’ve got fabulous taste. It’s not just a quick change of the desktop wallpaper. Oh no. She went above and beyond and customized the folders she has on her desktop!

Didn’t know that was a thing? We’re here to blow your mind then because you don’t need to stare at a boring desktop anymore with folders that are bland and don’t suit the creative personality that you are.
