Cool design tools for bloggers and non-designers

Several weeks ago, the Marketing team hosted a vivacious group of Houston-based bloggers for an open house / knowledge sharing evening.  And BOY did we have fun… and cake.  Lots of cake.

One of our incredible designers, Erica, created a fun rundown of the coolest FREE design tools for non-designers (perfect for budding bloggers!!) .

And we thought that we would share a few:

  • Font Squirrel and Da Font – great places to find that PERFECT font for your Pinterest-friendly blog posts
  • Design Seeds and Colourlovers – for those who seek the perfect color palettes and want a little rainbow inspiration
  • Adobe Shape CC – the coolest of the cool mobile apps to transform your sketches into digital vector designs!
  • Canva – seriously the easiest graphic design tool you’ll ever try

What are some of your suggested design tools and resources for up and coming designers?  We love that the Web allows even the greenest design lover / blogger to make beautiful things, let’s create something amazing together!!
