30 December 2010no comments all, cool stuff, design

That time already.
This month I’ll cover up some nice websites and places with cool freebies and nice inspirational stuff.

Inspiration

Meomi

At school we were really amazed by this website design.
With Meomi creating all kinds of things (like the Vancouver 2010 mascot) the things on the website are cool and the design around it is genius!

Flickr

Ok this is an old one, but the community works on and produces, makes photographs and art beyond imagination. There are several ways to look for pictures on this website.
The search option, and most easy option if you are looking for something specific
Explore, on this section of the website you can check the daily best, country, region or city specific, etc.
But there is an even better one out there (not on the flickr site) Idee inc. came with the idea to search pictures along to their color. So you fill in a series of colors and the search engine pops up with the best pics that match those colors check that website HERE(http://labs.ideeinc.com/multicolr/).
But watch out! The pictures on flickr are under copyrights. If you plan to use them, contact it’s owner. Most of the time I use these pictures in my Mood boards but no further.

Stocks

Dafont.com

On this website you can search for fonts in many categories, styles and fillings.
Ok small hint in here, the dingbats are fonts that contain no letters and numbers but shapes. They are actually very easy when you’d have to make something very fast.
But watch out with this one to. Some pictures are free, some are for personal use and some are restricted. When you install the fonts make sure the “readme.txt” within the zip you extracted it from goes in a folder on one of your hard drives. When you use a font check that folder if the font has some rules attached to it!

Dreamstime

This website offers very cheap stock pictures but also completely free pics.
If you can’t find what you are looking for on other stocks, but need that one picture so bad, why not look on this website. Dreamstime.com will bring you to the “paid” pictures but there’s a “free images” button on top of the page.
