Pixeden has a great collection of five high-resolution concrete textures for use in your designs you can download absolutely free. Be sure to check out all their other great textures while you’re there.
You may recall that I’ve written about Advise in the past, but they’ve changed their name and domain to adJelly.
If you missed my previous write-up about them, adJelly offers a fantastic collection of specs for all the most popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and more. You simply select the social media site you’re creating ads, images or graphics for in the left column and you’re presented with all the specs you’ll need.
The site is particularly useful for designers because sites like Facebook offer numerous options for sizes. For instance, Facebook offers sizes for single image ads, carousel ads, video ads, video slideshow ads, cover and profile images, post images, event images and more. Plus, specs change frequently, and some sites don’t make it easy to find the specs (I’m looking at you, Facebook!).
I love a nice, clean, well-rounded sans-serif font! Gilroy is kind of a cross between Gill Sans and Avenir; two fantastically readable fonts that work large or small.
Gilroy is a full family of 20 fonts which you can get for $45. But you can grab the Light and Extra Bold versions for free. Download the Gilroy freebies here.
It seems like every time I do a Keynote presentation for a client, they’re looking to use a logo or two of other companies for examples. Of course just grabbing the logo off that company’s website rarely works out well. Thankfully, there are a few sites out there that make it easy to grab a nice, clean, vector version of the logo.
I recently came across another site called Instant Logo Search. They have thousands of logos, all searchable, and all available in SVG (vector) format—as well as PNG, if that’s all you need.
The camera icons come in AI, EPS, SVG, PNG and PSD format.
Be sure to check out the thousands of Vandaley Design’s PSDs, vector art, textures, templates and other resources—all affordably priced starting at just $10 per month.
PixelBuddha has some fantastic T-shirt mockups, free to download. The PSD files are ready for Photoshop users to drop their logos or artwork in with little fuss, with the results rivaling a professional photo shoot.
Icons8 has made available a pack of 300+ flat color icons, free for commercial and personal use.
The icons come in PDF, PNG and SVG (vector, opened in Adobe Illustrator or other app that supports SVG) format.
Download the free icons here, and be sure to check out all their other great work while you’re there.
The folks at Mercury Intermedia have released their iOS 9.3 UI kit in Adobe Illustrator vector format. It is the most complete and up to date iOS UI Kit released to date. Unlike many UI kits created in raster image format (typically PSDs), this one is so much more flexible because all the items are full vectors—making them perfect for mockups.
The iOS 9.3 UI kit is free to download, and weighs in at about 29MB in size. The file also comes in SKETCH format. If you have any reason to re-create iOS screen, this is a must-have!
