10 design tools that’ll make you look awesome

Today’s Tutorial Tuesday is a page of amazing – and little known – resources

Hi everybody. Today, I’ve decided to take a break from video creation and show you a few resources I’ve found (and am starting to use) on my own projects.
I’m not affiliated with any of these people or companies, just using their services.

I thought you’d benefit from them as well.

Take a look – and leave any comments or questions below!

Type Scale

It’s a ‘visual types scaler’ for creating scaled text for your web designs.



Is a straightforward and powerful tool for building HTML5 animations and interactive content.


The Graphics Creator

Of course! This is a no-brainer.

Create your own high-quality graphics in minutes… literally!

And you can actually use many of the other products listed in this article along with it.

Duo Web Browser


Adaptive Backgrounds

This one is interesting in that it takes a dominant color from an image on your site, and sets the background to match it.


Layers Control

This is a FREE photoshop extension… a collection of 7 scripts that make tedious jobs easier


Origami version 1.4

if you’re an app programmer (or want to see how the programmers do it) check this out. It’s a free design “prototyping” toolkit.


Social Kit

is a Photoshop plugin for creating cover images, profile pictures, ad banners and more for various social platforms



a simple Web publishing tool for any kind of dial storytelling. And last but not least … this one is very interesting. I’m beginning to like it more and more as I use it.



it’s an app for Windows and Mac that makes it fast and easy to mockup web pages.
