With today’s increasingly visual web, its harder and hard to stand out from the pack. The team at Every-Tuesday released these free Vector Flourishes to bring a hand drawn feel to liven up your next design. The pack includes 20 unique flourishes that come in both .AI and .EPS formats to easily customize each graphic to fit the particular aesthetics for each design project. Even though flourishes have been around for centuries in print, they work nicely to add emphasis to certain text or elements with a sophisticated feel even projects suited for the web.
Thanks to the pervasiveness of social networks, social media icons have become ubiquitous in nearly all design projects. Whether the design is intended for print or for the web, chances are a social media icon will find its way into the project and not all of the icons fit nicely into a well-developed design. The social media vector pack by Daniel Oppel provides fully customizable, vector icons in a number of different styles, from icons with backgrounds, outlines and color to suit nearly any design. Each set includes the typical Social Media platforms as well as common web technologies such as RSS, Skype and WordPress.
For the discerning designer in us all, no detail is too small. From the slightest border and box-shadow adjustments to pixel-perfect grid-based systems, the modern web poses a number of design challenges and options for even the most basic of projects. The good folks at BCCO have put in the time to develop the Epic Favicon Generator, to help designers quickly create crisp favicons to accommodate standard desktops, smartphones and retina displays. The generator creates the icons and the necessary HTML tags to quickly and correctly implement the favicons into your project.
CSS reset rules have been around for years, helping designers to restore the baseline styles that pesky browser’s like to apply across the board. The Marx Stylish CSS Reset is a raw CSS based reset stylesheet that doesn’t rely on scripting or classes to get the job done. It is a lightweight and simple reset, best suited for projects that do not rely on attribute-heavy frameworks. Author Matthew Blode took care to ensure that base styles included clean typography and are fully responsive as well as mobile friendly. By avoiding the use of classes, the stylesheet is ready to be included directly with little customisation needed to bring the clean style rules to your next project.
Icons have held a special place in designers hearts for years and for good reason. They bring consistency across a design in ways that few other design elements can. Hüseyin Yilmaz created the Icons V.3 pack to bring cartoonish features to breathe some life into common-place icons such as drop down menus, zoom icons and email markers. The 24-piece icon set is available for free for both commercial and personal use and includes Illustrator, SVG, .TTF as well as preview versions in HTML and CSS so you can quickly include the icons in your latest design project.
