Once again, Twitter is turning out to be a great resource. There are tons of designers that offer their work as free to use downloads, and I found a ton of creative web elements in my Twitter stream today. If you like free resources as much as I do, you’ll want to follow @PhotoshopPLUS and @graphire. If you’re not on Twitter yet, you’re missing out on a great way to participate within the communities that exsist there.
The icons shown here by SmashingMagazine.com are only one set of exciting resources I found through a blog post by DesignFreebies.org. The PNG files included in the download are very large, which gives you plenty of options when using them to supplement your designs.
The Halloween collection includes vector images, icons, fonts, PhotoShop brushes, texture packs, PSD files, and even themed PhotoShop tutorials!
Keep Artist Terms in mind
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so when I saw all the goodies available for free, I must admit to going on a bit of a download frenzy! While playing with the icons from SmashingMagazine for this post’s graphic, I realized that it would be easy for me to give something back to the community by offering my own PhotoShop Styles… so, I had some fun playing in PS, and made a Halloween Styles collection!
Free Halloween Styles
Halloween styles for PhotoShop by GingerWench.com are free to download and use however you’d like! Some include textures, and all include gradients from my vast collection. Even if they’re not exactly what you’re looking for to make your Halloween project “pop”, they provide a great starting point for adjusting to your needs. Enjoy them!
