In an ideal world, we would carefully, lovingly handcraft every graphic design asset ourselves. But in the real world of tight deadlines and squeezed budgets, there are times when it’s useful to have some downloadable assets to hand, to speed things up.
It’s even nicer, of course, if they’re free. So in this post, we’ve rounded up 25 high-quality background, fonts and icon kits that have come to our attention recently. All free to download, they’ll hopefully provide just the right amount of aid to help you deliver your design project on time and on budget.
We'll start with free backgrounds, then on the next page you'll find a selection of free fonts, followed by free icons. Use the drop-down menu above to navigate.
