Design Tools to Help You Create Your Next Project- Part 2

Skuawk Public Domain Photos


“Artistically Loud” images, you’ll find them on Skuwak Public Domain Photos. This collection is more limited than what you’ll find on some of the other photos sites, but if the aesthetic fits what you’re looking for, this is a hidden gem.



Death to Stock is a simple stock photography resource that is built around “packs” of photos, each of which has a particular theme. Sign up for their email and get packs delivered right to your inbox. You can also sign up for a premium subscription and get access to all 1,500+ photos and videos across the site.



The team at Snappa created StockSnap, and the result is thousands of images you can use under Creative Commons Zero (CC0). You can browse by popular searches, or sort through images based on date, trending, views, downloads, and more.



The quality of photos on Pixabay is a bit more hit or miss, but the selection is much larger—you’ll have close to a million photos to choose from. All images and videos on this site fall under Creative Commons Zero (CC0), so feel free to download, modify, distribute, and use them royalty free. You can also find illustrations and vector graphics on this site.




Burst launched not too long ago, and already features over 1,000 beautiful free images. This resource exsits specifically to help entrepreneurs build more visually appealing websites, products, and marketing campaigns. Most of the photos you find on this site were taken in-house and typically trend around various business themes. They even have a bunch of in-depth case studies to help you start your own business.



It has to be said: we just love the name LOL Colors. This site features a curated selection of color palette inspiration. If you’re starting from scratch and aren’t quite sure what you’re looking for yet, this is a fun and quick way to browse through various color scheme options.

Microsoft launches a new AI startup program at Station F in Paris

Microsoft is rethinking its strategy when it comes to startup acceleration in Paris. The company is going to focus on artificial intelligence. This will lead to a new program for AI startups at  Station F . Microsoft has had a startup accelerator in the Sentier neighborhood for a few years now. When Station F opens at the  end of June , the company is going to focus exclusively on artificial intelligence with a partnership with  INRIA  and move everything to the startup campus. “We think that we’re first going to select 5 or 6 startups that can foster an ecosystem around INRIA and themselves,” Microsoft France Developer Experience leader Christophe Shaw told me. “The idea is that we’re eventually going to have a hundred startups in this club.” And the first startup joining this program is  Recast.ai . This French startup has been building a service that helps you build, launch and manage chatbots. The company also takes care of hosting those bots. A few big French companies hav

Making telescopes that curve and twist

New computational tool automates design of telescoping structures that provide compact storage and rapid deployment.

Credit: Chris Yu/Carnegie Mellon University A new tool for computational design allows users to turn any 3D shape into a collapsible telescoping structure. New mathematical methods developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University capture the complex and diverse properties of such structures, which are valuable for a variety of applications in 3D fabrication and robotics—particularly where mechanisms must be compact in size and easily deployable. The research, "Computational Design of Telescoping Structures," led by Carnegie Mellon Professors Stelian Coros and Keenan Crane and PhD student Christopher Yu, will be presented at the annual SIGGRAPH conference, 30 July to 3 August in Los Angeles. The conference each year spotlights the
