3 Essential Tools for Every Graphic Designer

Posted on

Hey! I’m Mark, I’m a self taught graphic designer. Here are three tools I use all the time for stuff that I design.


1. VSCO Photoshop Actions

If you have VSCO cam you know what VSCO is. These photoshop actions are a bunch of commands packed into one click that will apply a VSCO cam filter to your entire canvas. Very helpful, very easy – thank you beorange.

2. Designer Resources by Designers Insights

It’s always helpful to use a template – or copy someone else’s work (just kidding). These layout grids will keep you in line – literally – and give your design an appeal that works for just about any kind of application.

3. SubtlePatterns

A nice little plugin for Photoshop, but also great to use for creating patterns that can be applied as textures in Photoshop.
