My favorite places for fonts, images, and inspiration

FONTS

CREATIVE MARKET

Creative Market is a designer’s playground. They have ‘free goods’ every week that are usually funky and fresh. Click here to view their selection of affordable fonts.

MYFONTS

MyFonts is cool spot for purchasing lovely fonts. They also provide a service called WhatTheFont that helps you identify names of fonts you like.

FONT SQUIRREL

But, Font Squirrel is easily my favorite place for free fonts. Entire font families that are great for signage, blogs, and posters.

 

COLOR

DESIGN-SEEDS

Design-seeds is a great spot for color inspiration!

ADOBE KULER

Adobe Kuler is good for finding color schemes. You can type in a web code and get a variety of color palettes that compliment that particular color.

 

FREE-TO-USE PHOTOS

UNSPLASH

Unsplash is full of beautiful high-resolution images. These images are free to download and you can do whatever you want with them. I like this website because the photos range in style, personality, and culture.

DEATH TO THE STOCK

Death to the Stock delivers 10 stunning photos to your inbox each month. Signing up for their emails is such a great way to keep a library of killer photos for future use. Review their license before signing up.

 

FREE PHOTO EDITING

CANVA

Canva is an easy, drop-elements, design software that’s online and free to use. Great for on-to-go creating photo collages or headers.

 

WEBSITE HOSTING

GODADDY

Say whatever you want about GoDaddy and their ridiculous Super Bowl commercials, but their customer service is super helpful.

 

FREE MOCKUPS + TEMPLATES

FREE DESIGN RESOURCES

Free Design Resources is one of the cooooooolest place for finding all sorts of fun elements to use in creating. Fonts, mockups, templates, and more. You start scrolling and downloading and 30 minutes goes by fast.
