Top 5 Places To Find FREE Design Resources
There are tons of websites that sell and even give away graphic resources, but many turn out to not be worth your time. There are, however; a few places that offer top notch design resources for FREE. Here is a list of the top 5 websites I personally use when I’m in need of some graphic resources.
1. Creative Market
Now Creative Market on the surface looks like just any other stock graphic site. Lots of fonts, photos, and web templates. But unlike other graphic resource sites, Creative Market offers an awesome Free Goods section that is updated weekly. The free goods aren’t just a bunch of garbage graphics that you’ll never use either. Each week they hand pick a variety of goods from their shops, which can vary from vector graphics to WordPress themes. You can also sign up for their email list and they will send you an email showcasing each week’s free goods so you never miss anything.
Unsplash is a great website that boasts Free (do whatever you want) high-resolution stock photos. Every ten days Unsplash uploads ten new photos in order to keep their stock updated. It’s been an awesome place to find high quality photos that I can use with my blog or other design projects.
Very similar to Unshlash, Pexel curates photos from copyright free photos from around the web. It also features an integrated search function that makes it easy to find the pictures you want.
4. Graphic Burger
Graphic Burger does an amazing job of finding and sharing design resources from all over the web. I’ve especially enjoyed their collection of mockups.
5. DB Freebies
This site collects the best freebie design resources from Dribbble and Behance all in one place. You can get the latest free PSD for UI, mock-ups, icons, fonts, templates and backgrounds. It also allows you to search by category which is great for a quick search.
Just one last thought. There are people behind all these free resources and they put in a lot of time and hard work for these resources to exist. If you do download any of these free resources I encourage you to send the creator a quick thank you either by email, twitter, or even in the comments of the website. Everyone loves to hear their work is appreciated!
