Guys I m working on Design elements freebies website but I m not sure which type of elements designers needs most as a freebie, any suggestions
Mine: 1. Fonts 2. Stock photos 3. Mockups 4. Icons 5. Photoshop presets
Fonts for me. I never download templates or UI kits (isn't it our job to design these, not buy them?). Very occasionally icons, although I'll almost always draw my own either way.
- Stock Photos 2. Icons 3. Mockups 4. Fonts 5. UI Kits
Also never downloaded/used UI kit or any other "ready to use" design template.
I have bought quite a few icon libraries and use them very frequently, same for fonts - but tend to get these in discounted bundles (ie. designcuts.com).
Personal Projects: fonts and icons.
Nine to Five: It's difficult to go around downloading assets that will continuously change from review to review. There's already a brand identity with typefaces, color palettes, iconography, etc. pre-determined. As far as UI kits and elements, I take a look at whats out there and take inspiration, but everything is made from the ground up. I thoroughly enjoy wireframing, so I don't mind creating those from the ground up as well, though I'm sure theres some great free assets out there.
Oh god, my PM wants me to mockup every project we finish. And that's about 5 or 6 mockups a weeks. Please have mercy.
I download icons and fonts the most. As for UI and templates, I mainly use them as inspiration.
