In this article I would like to mention some of the tools and resources I use, that have made my standard workflow more productive and saved me a lot of time in the process. So here are my 10 useful tools and resources for web designers:
With Marvel you can turn sketches, wireframes, PSDs and designs into interactive mobile and web prototypes in just a few clicks. All synced in real-time from Dropbox.
InVision is a prototyping tool similar to Marvel. Quickly transform your designs into beautiful, fully interactive prototypes complete with gestures, transitions & animations for web, iOS & Android. You get one free project and then you have to chose a paid plan.
With Froont you can design websites directly in the browser with a simple drag and drop interface. It is free for public projects, but you can also buy a pro subscription for only $49 a month.
NinjaMock is a real time saver when it comes to creating mock-ups for your website or mobile app. It’s easy to use and includes external review and real-time commenting.
With Design Drop you can upload your design, share the url and receive feedback with visual annotations. It is totally free during their beta phase.
On Gratisography you will find free high-resolution images that you can use in your personal and commercial projects.
Coveloping is a free css generator. Generate free css for box shadow, pricing tables, shapes, animations, buttons. If you decide to go pro it will cost you $2,99 per month.
