Growing List of Design Resources

A curated list of design resources, tools, websites and all things I find useful and would like to share with you my designer friend.

I often search the web and find a lot of interesting and useful things online. 
I think you might do it as well. I have this habit of keeping lists of links and tools that I liked in hope to keep all the goodness I found in a sort of secret box where I can go back and pick things up when I need them. It feels like having that list, while working on a project, will help a lot and you will be much more prepared to do the work because you got a bunch of resources ready to use. It’s like having your dads toolbox at the garage. It’s there when you need it and you don’t have to worry and wast time searching the web again and again looking for something you already know that exists or already seen but don’t actually remember where it is.

Sometimes I have the feeling of sharing stuff, because I simply like sharing knowledge. That also helps me learn new things. I want to make it even easier for me to access this list of resources when I need it, so I thought: why not putting it in a place like Medium? I can access it anywhere, anytime. An open post that everyone can access, share, contribute. When I had this idea of course I first thought of building a website for that, but it would take even more time and effort to build, maintain, and I don’t want another excuse to do it, so there we go, there it is, a list of design resources I find useful for designers. This list will keep growing and now we can use it in our daily basis, at home, at work, anywhere, anytime.

Quick update, I created a video talking about this list and recorded the process of creating this post cover image. You can watch it here:
