Graphic design resources

Whether it’s for design inspiration or stock photography, there are a great deal of online resources out there for graphic designers. Here I list a few of the best online graphic design resources we have found:

Design Inspiration Gallery - FAVEUP

Faveup.com – graphic design inspiration gallery

A great website for design inspiration. Categories are broken down into Logos, Business Cards, Flash Websites and CSS Websites with a voting system to highlight the very best designs. You can also submit your own designs to gain feedback from fellow designers.

Photoshop Tutorials - PSDTUTS

PSDTuts.com – photoshop tutorials and tips

Have you ever seen an effect and wondered how you would use photoshop to achieve it? Well it’s probably listed on PSDTUTS. The website features very in depth tutorials on a wide range of photoshop processes and is also great for inspiration.

<br /> Free online tool for color palette design and matching - ColorBlender.com


ColorBlender.com features a very intuitive user interface to help you choose colour palettes. Simply enter the RGB values of the first colour and ColorBlender will offer you a full colour scheme with up to six colours. Once you have perfected your colour scheme, you can save it and send it to yourself by email. You can also download the palette in a .ACT file for use in Photoshop or an .eps for use in Illustrator.

Or, if you’re not in the mood for designing your own colour cheme, you can choose from the many schemes already saved by other users.
