Now you have a battery of fonts, brushes, color pickers, textures and even actions, to implement on your design in a fly. Gone were the days when you have to create every element by hand even the typography. Nevertheless, the ease with which we create artworks now, is because many artists have labored hard to create resources such as fonts and brushes so that others may have something to use and inspired upon.
