As a designer, there are tools, resources and creators that have assisted in me advancing my skills over the years. Since design is meant to be a shared experience, below are some of my top recommended content and creators. Enjoy and feel free to let me know if you’ve gotten value from any of them.
Throughout my website, some of the links may be affiliate links. My recommendation for these items are things that I’ve personally used, have enjoyed or strongly believe can assist you on your design journey. Should you click on them and make a purchase, I earn a small amount from that sale. The use of these earnings will be applied towards things like domain and server fees, various tools and other equipment costs to help further my side projects.
