Design Tools to Help You Create Your Next Project- Part 1

                              Creating a well-designed site, product, or project usually isn’t cheap. You know you want to make something that looks good–but how do you do it if you’re working with a limited budget? While there’s no substitute for hiring a great designer, there are ways to build something beautiful without spending thousands of dollars—and it starts with the little elements, like getting the font, icons, photos, and colors right.


Stock Photography

Stock photos and videos are notoriously expensive. While they are super important for making your website, presentations, pitch decks, and sales materials look sharp, few startups can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a limited license image.
If you’ve found yourself in this predicament before, here are a handful of sites with free (or cheap) stock photos that are actually captivating and don’t look like you just pulled them from a 90s business brochure

All photos on Pexels are free for personal and commerical use under a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. They currently have 30,000+ stock photos on the site, and add around 3,00 new images each month.



Upsplash was originally a side project started by the Crew team. It literally saved the company when it was a few weeks away from dying. Now, its a standalone site, with new high-quality images popping up daily.



The Stock Up site features 15,000+ indexed photos from over 30 different stock photography websites, like Life of Pix and Splitshire. Most of the photos fall under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license, but always refer to the original image for details about the specific license before use.


On Coverr, you’ll find beautiful, free videos for your homepage. Just download your favorite one, upload it to your website, and add the corresponding snippet of code to your site. Every Monday, you’ll find seven new videos on the site

CoolorsCoolorsis a super fast color scheme generator. You can explore thousands of pre-existing color schemes (each one features five colors). Or, you can generate your own in a matter of minutes. Once you go to the “generate” page, hit the space bar to start with a different color scheme, and then you can adjust each color’s hue, saturation, and brightness accordingly.

Web GradientsWeb Gradientsis a collection of almost 200 background gradients, created by the itmeo team. You can use each of these content backdrops for any part of your website. You’ll find a .PNG version of each gradient, as well as easy-to-copy CSS3 crossbrowser code. Bonus: there are even curated packs for Sketch & Photoshop.

Woot, 2.4.0 is out! : vue.js

FeaturesFull SSR + async component support in core: SSR now supports rendering async components used anywhere and the client also supports async components during the hydration phase. This means async components / code-splitting now just works during SSR and is no longer limited at the route level. (9cf6646 & 7404091) Easier creation of wrapper components: (6118759) New component option: inheritAttrs. Turns off the default behavior where
parent scope non-prop bindings are automatically inherited on component root
as attributes. New instance properties: $attrs & $listeners. $attrs contains the parent-scope attribute bindings that were not recognized as props, and $listeners contains the v-on listeners registered in the parent scope (without the .native modifier). These are essentially aliases of $vnode.data.attrs and $vnode.data.on, but are reactive. Combining these allows us to simplify a component like this down into this: <div> <inputv-bind="$attrs"v-on=&qu…
