Web and graphic designers have the privilege of being able to download quality, free resources that can be used in their work. Commonly-found resources include textures, Photoshop brushes, vectors, icons, patterns, and more. In today’s post I’d like to feature 20 design blogs that give back to the community by frequently releasing freebies to their readers. If you’re always on the lookout for quality resources, consider subscribing to these blogs. You may also be interested in our own Freebies category.
