We’ve combed the thousands of today-only deals on Amazon’s site to find savings on Adobe software, Wacom tablets and Faber-Castell pens and pencils.
It’s easy to get lost in Amazon’s Prime Day deals. They feature everything from XBox and PS4 consoles to sex toys – and once you go down the rabbit hole you might not come up again for hours. The deals sit in very broad categories – Tech, Fashion, Pets – and trying to find things that will appeal to designers and artists can be a challenge.
So we’ve done the hard work for you, unearthing deals from the likes of Adobe, Wacom
Many deals are territory-specific, so we’ve listed them by country. First up are UK deals – as that’s where we’re based – with US deals below them.
Most of the deals are available in limited quantities – so if you see one you like, snap it up before it disappears. And they’ll all be gone by midnight tonight.
All deals are only available to subscribers to the Amazon Prime service, though you could always sign-up for a free trial and cancel in the first month.
Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC
You can get a year’s subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan for £40 off – down from £109.99 to £69.99. Though this is primarily aimed at photographers, this is the cheapest way we’ve seen to get your hands on Photoshop CC – and it’s a great deal even if you don’t care about the Lightroom CC photography software (and if you do, so much the better).
Wacom Intuos Pro and Cintiq Pro tablets
These deals start at around 6pm, and we're guessing you'll have to be quick to get your hands on them. You'll be able to get your money off the 13-inch Cintiq Pro at 6.14pm, the Intuos Pro Paper Edition at 5.59pm and Intuos Pro Medium at 5.49pm.
Faber-Castell Pens and Pencils
There are some great deals on pens and pencils from Faber-Castell – any many of them are disappearing fast. Currently you can get a tin of 120 Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils for £90.07 (25% off) or, a tin of 36 Polychromos Colour Pencils with an A4 sketch pad for £60.96 (20% off).
Some of the deals will appear later today. From 4.30pm you’ll get money off tins of 120 Polychromos Colour Pencils or 24 Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils – or this wonderful wooden case with 120 Albrecht Durer Watercolour Pencils.
Dell 15-inch laptop
The Dell Inspiron 7000 is a great budget buy. It's no MacBook Pro – or Dell XPS 15 – and it's aimed at gamers. But the performance it needs for gaming also makes it great for creative work, and with 20% we're not being snobbish.

We all need headphones to block out the world and focus on what we're creating – and the best deal we've found is on Sennheiser's HD 598SR over-ear headphones (with a smart remote). You can get them for a whopping 60% off – down to £79.99 from £199.
Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements
You can get over 50% off the consumer versions of Photoshop and Premiere. Normally $149.99, you can buy them as a bundle for $72.99.

A typewriter keyboard for your computer
This keyboard doesn't do anything other keyboards don't also do – but its metal keys look an old-school typewriter. And that makes us love it.
