Here are our favorite tools, designed to inspire you to keep creating dope ass content.
In our office Canva is known as the design software from the GAWDS, you know, Cliff, Melanie and Cameron, the creators! Yeah, we use Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, but, sometimes, just opening them can take forever. With Canva, you can open in a browser window quickly and get your imagination on immediately. Recently, they've added some really cool shit, like, Magazine Cover, Resume & Ebook templates.
PEXELS...Ooo la la! There are many sites where you can source CC0 Licensed images, however, Pexels, is our JAM for all sorts of reasons. It's incredibly user friendly, you can search and view images within seconds. They release 50 high res photos a day, say what. Oh, and, the name is super easy to remember. One last thing, if you don't find what you're looking for, which for us is almost never, they give you Shutterstock image options. AMAZING
So, word, ColorZilla allows web developers and graphic designers to identify the hex color of anything within that browser. Currently, this plug-in can only be used with Google Chrome and Firefox, perf, because who designs in Safari? Sorry, not sorry, Safari users.
Everyone loves free shit. Creative Market gives away 6 freebies each and every week from fonts to templates. Not what you're looking for that week, so what, who knows when you will be needing a specific design element. Download the weekly freebies anyway, we do.
