5 Freebies for Graphic Designers


I have a very useful list of design freebies today, friends!

I love having convos with design friends about where they find certain things, and sharing my own secrets can be very helpful to them as well. From fonts, to stock photography, to online courses, here's 5 of my favorite graphic design resources to help in your next project...

1. Free Fonts: Most of my favorite fonts are free for personal use, and there are just so many websites out there, it can be difficult to navigate through! My favorite is DaFont.com. Okay, it's not the best looking site...and you may question downloading from it. But it's my go-to site for great fonts, and browsing through the recently added fonts can really get my next project going.

2. Free stock photography (like really great photos): I've been a user of Death to The Stock Photo for years now. They email me every month a batch of beautiful, professional photos. And if you want even more, for just $12 a month you can access their huge library of great photos. (not sponsored, just love this company!)

3. Free coding lessons: If you're a designer looking to code, and you don't have the time or money to go to a class, you can do it for free at home. I discovered Codecademy about a year ago, and the lessons are actually fun, and you can do it on your own time. What's better than that?

4. Free photo editing: My favorite app to edit photos is VSCO. You may have already heard of it from your fave Instagram blogger, but as a designer, I also love their filters and editing features, and it's so much fun to use on my phone. There's a free and paid version, depending on how many filters you'd like to look through.

5. Free design inspiration: Pinterest. How are you not on it already? I could browse it for hours and find all of the creative inspiration I need. I also find plenty of home decor ideas, but that's another story. Take a look at my page here if you need a little inspiration!

Well, there you have it! Fonts, photos, classes, editing tools, and inspiration. I hope these free resources help you with your next project. So get your little designer brain working, and make something fab!
