As a creative professional, it’s essential to keep a strong base of free (or relatively inexpensive) resources to use on projects. I keep a pretty good running list of free resources to check first before having to purchase something or design a piece from scratch. I also enlisted the help of Zack Tatum, fellow designer, and my business partner over at Market House, to expand on my own list.
We hope you find these resources as helpful as we do. We’ll keep the list updated over time and if you run across any other great resources, let me know in the comments below. Enjoy.
