If you enjoy creating graphics, then you know that it can be tough finding free design resources for your projects.
As a graphic designer, because I use most of my creations for commercial purposes (free resources typically can’t be used for commercial projects), I’ve become accustomed to paying for my design resources. However, when I’m designing for fun, I love browsing the internet for free design resources.
In this post I’m sharing 8 of my favorite places to find free design resources.
As always, whenever you’re downloading resources online, be sure to read the licensing agreement.

1. Creative Market Free Goods of The Week
I love Creative Market. I actually offer my feminine WordPress themes on Creative Market. Every week, Creative Market offers a beautiful selection of free design elements. These elements range from free WordPress themes, to free fonts and graphics.
FreePik offers a large collection of free for commercial use (with attribution) vectors, PSD files, icons, and stock photos. Free commercial use with attribution means that in order to use their design elements, you must place a credit on your blog back to the graphic on their website. If you don’t want to place an attribution on your site, you can purchase a premium license for $9.99 per month.
Psddd features hand-pick freebies from the Dribbble website. Psddd offers icons, devices (such as iphone mockups), elements, kits, wireframes, and more.
4. The Hungry JPEG
I often purchase font bundles from the Hungry JPEG. Only recently did I discover that they also offer free design resources. They have a nice collection of free fonts, mockups, illustrations, and stock photos.
5. Freebies Bug
Freebies Bug has a huge collection of free PSD files, illustrations, sketches, and fonts. They also provide free resources for developers like tutorials, plugins, and frameworks.
6. Free Design Resources
A few weeks ago I discovered Free Design Resources. This site has become one of my go to resources for free design elements. Free Design Resources has a beautiful collection of free fonts, templates, icons, mockups, graphics, and more.
Vecteezy is one of the first sites I discovered when I was teaching myself graphic design. Vecteezy has a large collection of free vector art. I highly recommend visiting this site if you’re in need of vectors.
8. Deviant Art
I’m a huge fan of Deviant Art. This is another site that I discovered quite a few years back. You name the design element, and it can be found on Deviant Art.
Bonus Resource: Angie Makes
Angie Makes offers beautiful and feminine watercolor themed clip art, some of which can be downloaded free of charge. No sign up is required to download these gorgeous freebies.
