Freesources - Tools for Students & New Designers

 

Welcome to the blog! I'm excited to finally start writing and posting regularly.

For my first post, I'm revisiting a post from a course blog I built a few years ago, while TA-ing a design class. I've been compiling useful resources for a few years now, and I've put together a simple guide for students, new designers, and anyone looking for extra resources to add to their design practice.

As with all free things, quality can vary between resources, so use your best judgment. Tools are useful, but good design comes from the choices you make in your work. Now that you have more tools at your disposal, go forth and make something awesome.
