This post has been a long time coming but I’m finally sitting down to write it. The internet is a weird and wonderful place and I spend a lot of time reading web/graphic design blogs and websites and I’ve come to the realisation that there are literally 1000s of sites that bloggers may not have discovered but should do. Web and graphic design websites offer a whole host of blog freebies to designers but these blog freebies can also be used by bloggers to improve their own blog designs. So today I’ll be introducing you to a long list of them in the hopes that you’ll use them to improve your own blog designs. I’ll also give a brief description of each site and let you know what blog freebies they provide. So let’s get started! Pugly Pixel – Most bloggers will already know of Katrina and Pugly Pixel but if you don’t let me give you a brief description. Pugly Pixel offers free clip art, Photoshop and CSS tutorials, Blogger themes and Blog photo templates as well as a whole host of other stuff. This site should be your first stop (after me of course). Creative Nerds – This is a site for web designers that offers tonnes of freebies including social media icons, textures and photoshop tutorials. Deviant Art – Not just a place for EMO’s to share their artwork. DA is probably the site I visit most after Twitter. They offer Photoshop and GIMP brushes, shapes & patterns. as well as textures, fonts, clip art, images, icons and tutorials. Pretty much everything you could ever need. Da Font – Tonnes of free fonts of the highest quality. Font Fabric – Beautiful typography to use in your headers, labels etc The Graphics Fairy – a home to literally 100s of free clip art images with a special emphasis on vintage images. Pinterest – Search for blog freebies and a whole host of amazing graphics for blogs come up on the search page. Miss Tiina – Fonts, labels and many other freebies. Has some of the cutest fonts I’ve ever seen. Smashing Magazine – The number one site for web designers. It regularly releases free vector art, icons, textures and WordPress themes. Premium Pixels – Social media icons, UI kits (nav menu backgrounds, search buttons etc), WordPress themes. Subtle Patterns – Textures and Backgrounds. Lost and Found - Amazing selection of textures to use in your design. I Rock So What - A blog that releases regular freebies like clip art, badges and labels.
