7 Sites for Affordable (or FREE) Fonts and Graphic Design Resources

As artists, it’s only natural for us to pour ourselves in our creative endeavors. In my case, whenever I work on a project I always prefer to do most things from scratch—hand-letter my own words, digitally paint my own textures, animate my own effects, and so on.

While this definitely adds a unique, personal touch to the project, time and money are unfortunately not as flexible as we’d like. Oftentimes it’s just more practical—and sane— to work smarter instead of harder!

Fortunately there are hundreds of resources for all kinds of art and graphic design work…fonts, textures, illustrations, photos, patterns, mock ups, animation, photoshop templates, after effects templates—we are practically spoiled rotten with the choices!

Here are some awesome sites that I use for graphic design resources, and what makes each of them amazing!
