Favorite Free Resources for 2022

1. TheNounProject.com

Over 3 million icons to communicate any idea.
Available as PNG or SVG, this awesome database of icons is free to use as long as you attribute the creator. If you want full creative freedom and no requirements, there is a completely unrestricted plan for around $35/year. The purchases support contributing artists and their ultimate goal is to build a graphic design language that bridges typical language barriers and unites us all. So what's not to like about that.

2. Unsplash.com

Free-ly Usable Images – Photos from Creators Everywhere
Maybe a no-brainer for many in the creative field, this easy to use and completely free platform allows you search, download, and use beautiful photos. The images are free for personal or commercial use. We end up using them a lot for client pitch decks, mockups, and so much more.

3. ColorHunt.co

Hand-picked color palettes free to use on your next project.
Color Hunt is a great little tool we like to use during our branding projects. We like to search with a specific key color or sometimes use the keywords on the left sidebar for inspiration. If you create a free profile, it's easy to save palettes for later use as well.
