Five Free Resources For Graphic Designers

As a graphic designer, I have learned that bookmarks are your friend. If you can find a graphic to use faster than drawing it yourself saves time and increases profit. As such, I have been building a growing list of fantastic websites that offer both free and paid resources. In this post, I wanted to focus on five websites that offer free resources.

Design Bundles

Design Bundles have got thousands of premium and free SVGs, sublimation designs, paper cutting templates and embroidery designs to name a few. All of which have easy-to-follow commercial licensing rules that anyone can understand.

If you want to make your design pop, seeing them out in the wild is a fantastic way to help you and potential buyers visualise them. There are a variety of Mock-Up websites out there so I have highlighted both https://mockupsfinder.com/ and http://mockupsforfree.com/. They are both owned by the same company but have a slightly different focus. One has a better search engine, whereas the other only shows the free files.

Illustrations

Blush.Design has a unique collection of illustrations that can be altered and updated with ease. Blush has made designing so much fun. The illustrations are amazing and customizing illustrations are simple. It has a range of plugins for various graphics packages and you can get 7 Days free ahead of paying for any Pro license.

Icons

FlatIcon.com has over four million icons. Whilst, not all are free, you can refine your search to free and get access to so many amazing icons that can be used with both personal and commercial projects.

Brushes

There are so many free Photoshop brushes all over the web, and with them, you can elevate your creations to a whole new level. But with so many around to choose from, finding the best brush for your needs can be tough. Thankfully CreativeBloq has created a substantial list with download links for your pleasure.
