Design Resources — Growing list

A curated list of design resources, tools, websites, and all things I find useful and would like to share with you, my designer friend.

I often search the web and find a lot of interesting and useful things online.
I think you might do it as well, don't you? I have this habit of keeping lists of links and tools that I liked in hopes to keep all the goodness I found in a sort of secret box where I can go back to from time to time and pick things up when I need them. It feels like having that list, while working on a project, will help a lot and you will be much more prepared to do the work because you got a bunch of resources ready to use in case you need them. Who doesn't like to have a great list of design resources somewhere? It’s like having your dad's toolbox in the garage. It’s there when you need it and you don’t have to worry and waste time searching the web, again and again, looking for something you already know that exists or have already seen but don’t actually remember where that design resource is.

Sometimes I have the feeling of sharing stuff because I simply like sharing knowledge. That also helps me learn new things. I want to make it even easier to access this list of resources when I need it, so I thought: why not put it in a place like Medium? I can access it anywhere, anytime. An open post that everyone can access, share and contribute to. When I had this idea of course I first thought of building a website for that, but it would take even more time and effort to build something like that and maintain it. I don’t want another excuse to end up not doing it, so here I go, here it is, a list of design resources I find useful for designers. This article is full of design resources you will like to discover and keep. Make sure to save it so you can come back later!

This list will keep growing as I find new useful stuff. So that is why I call it a growing list, because it will keep growing over time. Now you and I can use it on a daily basis, at home, at work, anywhere, anytime. ENJOY!
