Ever had to submit a design to the client, with the clock ticking away too fast? What do you do? Will you sit down and start a tedious design process that you know you won’t be able to deliver on time? Or will you use a huge array of online design resources to cut down the time in half and help your client drive their marketing efforts forward? My guess is you’d do the latter.
Keeping that in mind, here’s a list of four free design resources that may come in handy during a time crunch.
From PSDs to free stock photos, Freebiesbug has it all. You can even find icon packs, so you don’t have to create all those tiny detailed icons from scratch. Freebiesbug is a great place for resources, which have been hand-picked especially for designers.
Looking for inspirational UI elements or backgrounds that will make your designs pop? Psddd has a great collection of wireframes, UI elements, icons and even whole design kits, which you can modify to fit your client’s needs.
