Sharing Saturday: Design resources


I’ve been designing and websites for years now, and one of the most valuable things in my arsenal is fantastic resources created by others that can be used for free. So here are 5 of my go to users for free resources.


Crazykira Resources

If you ever checked the credits for any of you’re likely to see Crazykira Resources listed 😛 I absolutely love her patterns and textures! Here are some of my favourites of her work:

Another firm favourite for several years now is spiritcoda and her gorgeous for icons and wallpapers/bigger graphics.

Lookslikerain is my go to for icon textures; she has made so many and covers pretty much every colour and texture – and she’s still going strong! Here’s some examples of her lovely icon textures, but she also has packs of larger and mixed sizes too.

Missesglass is a girl after my own heart; she scans loads of scrapbook materials and creates various resources from them. There are pngs, textures, scrapbook scans, brushes and more. Here are some of my favourites!
