Who doesn’t love free things? Whether it’s free parking, free wi-fi, or free waffles, free things bring a smile to your face and a sigh of relief from your wallet.
Throughout my years as a digital designer, I’ve discovered a treasure trove of sites that offer high-quality, free design resources. Below are some of my favorite free sites to wet your freebie whistle.
1) Psddd: A curated collection of various freebies offered to artists from Dribbble
2) Six Revisions: Tons of icons, PSD templates, brushes and much more
3) Blog Spoon Graphics: Features tons of awesome textures, Photoshop actions, brushes and mock up templates (this BSG freebie post might be especially helpful for my fellow Threadless designers!)
4) Lost and Taken: Searching for awesome hi-res textures? Look no further!
5) Font Squirrel: A massive collection of free, high-quality fonts
6) Creative Market: Each week, Creative Market offers a selection of free items from its creative community, including fonts, textures, backgrounds, etc.
7) Specky Boy: These monthly posts offer up a wide range of freebies including fonts, vectors, and much more
