Typography

Essentially, typography refers to the arrangement, appearance, and style of text that is used in web design. The main reason why typography is crucial to web design is because it ensures that the text on the web page is legible and understandable.

Included in the ten typography tools is Google Fonts. You can find a lot of (free) fonts here that you can use for your website. There’s also Fonstruct (create your own font!), and 1001 Fonts (a huge library of fonts you can use), among others.

The highlighted favorite is Frontface Ninja. It is a free tool that helps you identify fonts on a web page and use them.

Stock Photos

Among the tools included in this category is Pexels. This site offers a huge database of stock photos that can be downloaded for free. Unsplash is another free download stock photos database that offers ten new photos every ten days.

The author’s favorite is Pixabay. There are hundreds of thousands of high quality images all available under Creative Commons license.

Stock Graphics

Stock graphics is probably the most influential way to communicate with targeted audience. Graphic designing includes the use of artworks, logos, shapes, and icons, among others.

With advancement, today, such visual representations are also available through resources that may or may not charge a fee. An example is Vecteezy, the best place to find vector images.

The ispot, while a paid resource, is a good place to buy premium illustrations from talented artists. Flaticons, on the other hand, is free. It is a huge database contributed to by designers. Use of their icons require credits.

Other stock graphics tools include Illustrio (paid, customized beautiful icons), Iconfinder (search engine for free icons), and The Noun Project (free, black and white simple icons).

Infographics

Infographics are easy on the eyes and can also be registered in the mind without much difficulty.

There’s also Draw.io, a free online tool great for making network diagrams and flow charts; Infogram, another free online tool that can be used for making interactive charts and infographics; and Piktochart, another free and easy-to-use infographic maker.

Collaboration

It is not always possible for web designers to meet the exact requirements of the clients. However, with the help of collaboration tools, it is now possible to simplify the burden of work.

InVision, for example, is a free and simple prototyping and collaboration tool best for design teams. Cage is another collaborative tool, though paid, offering an attractive dashboard where teams can communicate with clients.

Colors

Colors evoke emotions that generate a response, including sales, from readers. There are a lot of tools you can use for adding colors to your project.

Color Hunt, for example, is a free tool that will let you browse through thousands of four-color combinations until you find the perfect one for your website. Coolors generates colors that are appropriate for your project designs, while Unclrd is a free browser extension that turns websites into black and white.
