(Design Resources) We Like

We love what we do but sometimes our creativity fails us leaving us high and dry. We all have our go-to resources for when we’re stuck in a rut but if you’re looking for something new, here are a four of our favorites.

swl-pattern-library


The Pattern Library
Illustration is tough work and unfortunately not everybody has the time (or patience) to create seamless pattern work. This ongoing project compiles patterns shared by the most talented designers out there for you to use freely in your designs. You’re welcome.

swl-uxarchive


UX Archive
Do you have a love hate relationship with developing user flows? Your job just got easier. UX Archive lays out the most interesting user flows out there so you can compare them, see what works, what doesn’t work and get inspired. While it doesn’t replace the physical experience of using an app it sure does make visualizing flows a whole lot easier.

swl-really-good-emails


Really Good Emails
Step up your marketing game! Promoting your business can be hard but putting together that newsletter you’ve been meaning to do can be even harder. Really Good Emails curates the best designed email blasts and newsletters out there – the kind that people won’t automatically delete.

swl-dollar-photo


The Dollar Photo Club
We try to produce original content in everything that we do but let’s be honest, whether its budget constraints or timelines, sometimes things get in the way. When using stock content is your only option why pay an arm and a leg for it! The Dollar Photo Club serves up stock photography, vectors and illustrations for, you guessed it … ONE DOLLAR!
