Digital resources are everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a stock photo or an animated illustration, you don’t need to look far (or for hours) to find what you need. But this can be a double-edged sword, too.
On one hand, you’re confident that you have a vast ocean of websites to get digital resources from. So sometimes, you may even put off searching for that vector image, simply because you know you can always find a site that offers it. On the other hand, once you sit down and begin doing the project, you’re surprised that it took you half an hour to stumble upon exactly what you need.
This is where having a go-to site comes in handy. No more wading through mediocre online elements that just don’t deliver the minute you unzip them. Get everything you need – and more – from just one website, quickly and easily.

When to use digital resources?
You may be asking yourself: ‘why even download digital resources at all? There’s so much stuff on the Web.’
Imagine creating a scrapbook of your summer holiday. You’re out there cutting photos, adding glitter, and pasting magazine cut-outs to make the page look more fun and festive. You may even write short quotes or text, to help you remember particular photos.
The same method applies to modern-day projects, like making websites or corporate presentations.
Digital resources are like the magazine cut-outs, stickers, and glitter on a scrapbook. They are elements that make your work stand out. It’s these little details that separate your project from someone else’s – making you more memorable in the eyes of your audience. By creating your own collection of digital resources, you can cut your time and effort in half, because you won’t need to browse the Web anymore.
Digital marketers, for example, should have templates on hand for email and social media campaigns. Web designers would do well to stock up on UI kits and eCommerce icons. Business owners on the other hand, will love colorful illustrations they can add on their websites, business cards, flyers, menus, or posters.
Not all who use digital resources are designers. Students, office workers, marketers, business owners, and PR specialists can also benefit from having their own digital resource library.
This is more than just grabbing stock photos (although those are pretty standard). There are vector packs for social media campaigns, background illustrations for project presentations, as well as templates for brochures, menus, and book covers, just to name a few.
To make your own digital resource library, create a free online account (e.g. in Google Drive) using your email address. Next, head on over to Design.dev and download what you love. Then, upload them in your online drive for future use. And voila – your very own FREE digital resource library to help you add flair to your projects, presentations, flyers, business cards, and more!
