No matter what kind of task you have or problem you need to solve, it is often a bad strategy to start from scratch. In the design space, it is a common approach to look for ideas and inspiration and to collect a sizeable toolbox of design elements to kick start a project and test ideas in a snap.

Many creative websites offer design freebies and this has been a growing trends over the last couple of years. The availability and quality is amazing, and I am confident you will be able to find useful building blocks for nearly any type of project. All you need is a good idea of what you need and then where to look.

Design freebies come in many different types and shapes. Most commonly, we see icons, fonts, PSDs, vectors, web elements, infographic elements and so on.

I have collected more than 50 great websites that provide good quality free design resources. The collection may not include all great collections out there, so please let me know if I missed one you like.
