Are you a designer? Do you work with designers? Have you been looking for some resources to help people in the design industry do their jobs better or easier? If so, then this post is for you. Here are 10 online tools that I have found to be extremely useful when it comes to design. They range from prototyping software, vector graphics editors, fonts, and more!


Coolors is an essential tool for both budding and professional designers! It allows you to generate perfect matching colors in seconds. Even if you are not so skilled, Coolors will take care of everything and help create that next big hit with just one click away.




If you're creative, Canva is the perfect tool for designing and publishing your own designs. With this easy-to-use software program available on any device including desktop computer or laptop as well as smartphones and tablets it's never been easier!


WhatTheFont! is an innovative new app developed by MyFonts that allows you to identify the font in any image with just one click of your mouse. This technology uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence and gets users what they need instantly—download links for free fonts (or purchase links for premium fonts) straight from their computer screen!


The Creatopy banner creator is your one-stop platform for all kinds of digital banners. It has countless templates and elements so you can design custom banners in no time at all, with an extensive library of sizes/formats available to choose from!

Monogram Maker

Monogram is a hot trend that has been increasing in popularity. The Monogram Maker offers more than 10 pre-made designs and many other associated elements for you to customize your monograms, logos or graphics! You can also use this tool create personalized artwork with different fonts/textures on top of one another like an old school letterpress print.


Dribble is the ultimate design community. It's an online platform where you can find inspiration, feedback from other designers or industry experts in your niche field of interest—and even get jobs! So use it as often as possible for all things related to creativity and crafting beautiful things whether at work or just because they make us happy.


The use of icons is an important part in any marketing campaign. They provide the interface for users and convey messages between them, with Flaticon providing more than one million different Icons to choose from that will suit your project needs no matter what they may be!




GIPHY is a platform that allows users to convert portions of video into looping gifs. They also have the option of using other user-generated GIFS or creating custom ones for social media marketing purposes! The more personality you put into your campaigns will result in an increase on engagement with viewers which ultimately leads them back around again soon enough.


Depositphotos provides royalty-free stock images at affordable prices. It is a great resource platform especially for young designers who want to make their mark in this competitive field!




A great alternative to Canva, Visme is the perfect solution for any project you are working on. It has capabilities to create digital content with data visualization, infographics and even short videos all in one platform! Visma offers free templates like ebooks, flyers and icons which makes this software very affordable while still being high quality.
