What's the Cookie's Story?

We are a team of Blender fanatics, bootstrapped and here to create awesome things with Blender

CG Cookie launched in 2008 as a software agnostic content site built with Wordpress and a purchased theme. Featuring tutorials, art gallery and conversations on various software. CG Cookie offered training on 3D modeling with Blender, game development with Unity, concept art with Photoshop and even sculpting with real clay.

Originally selling individual tutorials for $4, CG Cookie began to take hold after the now pivotal release of our Blender 2.5 training DVD. Shortly thereafter we launched our Citizen paid membership in November 2010.

In 2017 CG Cookie transitioned away from a heavy Wordpress site to a fully custom-built Ruby on Rails CMS. A CMS that we’ve iterated a few times on and was the spark to create the Mavenseed Project.

We’ve come to recognize our superpower is within the software Blender and are passionate about supporting this free open-source community that has supported us.

In 2019 CG Cookie pivoted to be a Blender-focused project.
