Content Unicorn: the perfect free* image

Working with non-profits or small businesses on a budget means that I almost always have to get creative with images. There’s not usually enough of a budget to purchase an image, and not enough time for me to create an image from scratch.

But before I head to Flickr or Google to search through an uncurated, never-ending scroll of Creative Commons images, I head to these sites first:

Icons
