Top 5 Useful Websites For Identity Designers
We collected resources that could replace the overly-used Behance, Dribble and Pinterest in the identity design field. There are better alternatives — find inspiration, icons and logos, choose fonts and colors, and more!
1). Adobe Color CC (@adobedesign) color palette generator: just choose a color, and the site itself will offer all the shades that match.
2) Designspiration (@designspiration) — like Pinterest but dedicated to design only. It’s a platform where artists share their inspiration, design ideas, and logos.
3). Flaticon (@freepik) is a huge resource with icons of any kind: they have more than 70 thousand icons on their website. And it’s easy to use: go to the site, drop all the icons you need into the “Collection”, look at the combinations and download in any convenient format and size.
4) The Dieline (@thedieline) focuses on package design, but it’s a fantastic place to see logos in real life scenarios — the color combinations will make your eyes sparkle and get your creative juices flowing. Branding design inspiration for the win!
5) Icons8.Fonts helps you choose fonts correctly. This is a very handy thing: first you need to choose the main font from the 50 best ones, and then select a great font pair from the abundance of options.
