I'll be honest - bootstrapping startup is hard.

Ideally, we should have enough budget to hire a part-time decent graphic designer.

But we don't.

So it naturally falls into my hand to stretch our budget by doing our own graphics.

Here are 5 of my favorite resources to find free images and illustrations. Some don't even require attribution.

Let's get right to it!

  1. https://unsplash.com/ - lots of good photos, easy to use, fast turnout, clean website.

  2. https://undraw.co/ - great illustrations, SVG export, can change colors

  3. https://fontawesome.com/ - vector icons and logos

  4. https://www.drawkit.io/free - great illustrations, SVG export

  5. https://www.freepik.com/ - free vectors and photos, watch out for attributions though
