In this post we’re going to take a look at some great freebies websites I like and constantly use. Now, there’s no secret there are tons of freebies websites with lots of great designers offering good products for free to the community, but in this post I’ve handpicked my favorites. I must also say that my list includes only websites which offer freebies exclusively (meaning that they’re the creators and only publishers of the resources). So take a look below. I’m sure you will find something useful for your projects, from PSD resources, free HTML templates to royalty-free stock photos.
WordPress themes have been growing and growing in terms of popularity and engagement from users. WordPress has become a titan, with over 74 milion sites it powers. This way, a whole industry of third-party theme and plugin developers emerged around it. These publishers push WordPress to its limits each day, managing to get the most out of it. The themes become more powerful, more functional, with more and more features this engine wasn’t initially built for. This makes a fierce competition. I’m not saying there’s no room for new publishers. I’m just saying that now, with the stakes so high, a WordPress product must achieve excellence in order to become successful.
Blurred backgrounds have become a trend in web design nowadays. They’re not so complex, they’re easy to make and highly effective, especially in minimalist designs which they work so well with. I’ve created a pack with 30 high-resolution blurred backgrounds to fit everyone’s needs. It contains various colors and contrasts and I’ve added some more saturated ones in case someone needs that kind of effect. Basically, this pack is meant to be used by anyone.
I’ve put together a top of 10 brand-new magazine WordPress themes I consider the best releases in June 2014 under this category. This month’s list is pretty diverse, with themes from bold to minimal, from media and video-centered themes to readability and content-oriented ones. We’re looking at good themes with tons of options and customizations, some of which have great, fresh and innovative designs. Check them out.
In this posts I am going to show you how to create a very popular and efficient download system on your website. The concept is simple: users will be required to tweet (a message of your choice) before being able to download files. This is a great system for going viral on the social networks and promoting your website when offering freebies, for example. A lot of freebies websites use this system. As you may have noticed, we use it too, here on DesignerHype.
