Thought I’d do something a little different and post my fave design related tutorials/freebies/finds of 2012. I’d also love to hear your faves as well.
Here are a my Top Ten Faves in no particular order:
This is pretty cool and something that I would NOT have figured out on my own…well maybe someday I would have but I’m just glad someone else came up with this great tutorial. Thank you WebDesign Tuts +
2. Sudtipos Fonts: Love, Love, Love this site! For all things beautiful when it comes to Fonts this is the place to check out. I love that you see a sample of the font when you hover over the name of the font. The fonts are usually pricey but it’s definitely worth saving up for (speaking as a designer).
3. Bracket Frames in Illustrator Tutorial– This year I fell in love with the site called Nicole’s Classes. One my goals this year is to take a class from this site and brush up on my skills! Can’t wait! I have always wanted to learn how to create my own bracket frames in Illustrator- this is a great tutorial.
4. Fuzzimo (Freebies for Commercial and Personal Use): Who doesn’t love free? This site has such great design freebies to give your designs(blog or other wise) that added umph that it needs!
5. Button Generator at http://www.mycoolrealm.com/sandbox/gbgen/. This makes it sooooooo easy to make your own blog button. I love this and many of my blog friends love and use this too!
6. MyGrafico.com has fun, cute and stylish digital art that is afforadable.
7. Depositphotos.com is a great place to get commercial use images/illustrations/clip art for you blog. It’s a little more affordable than istockphoto in my opinon.
8. Fab n’ Free Has quality freebies for you to use on your blog or to print out.
9. Design Seeds has a great selection of color schemes to help get your creativity going. The great thing is you can pin these to pinterest and save them for future use!
10. Awesome Social Media Icons: Sweet Simplicity Design Shoppe ( I couldn’t resist!) These have been really popular! P.S these will be going on sale in the New Year!
Hope you enjoyed my top ten!
Wishing you all a very Happy & Hope Filled New Year!
