Welcome to Free Web Design Resources
If you're an agency, a freelance designer, or simply someone looking to create great designs, you're probably familiar with the cumbersome process of finding design resources. These resources, whether they're stock photos, icons, patterns, or imagery, can be difficult to find (and expensive!).
We've scoured the web to find free web design resources and can help you in your search to create the perfect design. Stock photos, imagery, icons, patterns - you name it, we've found a resource that is not only inexpensive, but is also great quality. Review our list below for a description of the design resource as well as a link to that resource. To our knowledge, these resources are absolutely 100% free, but always make sure to check the licensing information (better safe than sorry!).
Google Icons 2.1
This is the latest from Google! Its so new I am still checking out all the icons myself!
This is one that I was recently told about by /u/the_bloated_scot on reddit! Thankyou, looks great!
Font Awesome Icons
This is a font pack like webdings, however you can use it within photoshop! use the cheatsheet to copy/paste.
flaticon has a wide variety of free vector icons, however you are required to make an account and don't forget to credit the author if used in your work!
freepik is a great resource because it includes icons, stockphotos, and much more. You are required to make an account and credit the author.
Icons are easily accessible on this site without requiring a login and in SVG or PNG format which is nice.
This one is really neat, and a very unique design. There is not that much of a selection but is still full of nice patterns.
This site has a nice selection of transparent and non-transparent patterns that you can use as overlays or combine with backgrounds.
This site has AWESOME resources, and gives 10 new photos every 10 days. This one has also been around for quite some time.
Imcreator is actually a website builder application, but they have a great selection of totally free images. Great resource.
This one is my current favorite as well as the newest one I have come across. I usually can find what I need here.
FreeImages is a great resource for images when in a pinch. There is always something useful here. used to be known as www.sxc.hu
This one has been with me for years. One of my first graphic design teachers showed me this one for the first time about 10 years ago.
This is an interesting one. Includes pictures of earth in iPhone resolution. However, I'm sure these images don't have to be used on an iPhone.
I like this one a lot. Great search with filters and compiles a lot of website's libraries in one place.
Pexels is sort of has a trendy feel with most of its stock photos having some sort of filter on them. Nonetheless, a great selection.
