I’m not a designer, so I find it useful to take inspiration from others when building software.
- Ira Design for illustrations
- unDraw - A great collection of open-source illustrations with customisable colour schemes.
- 3dicons - Open source 3D icon library

- Recursive - Flexible typeface (I use this on this website)
- Nordic Wallpapers - small collection of wallpapers for use with a Nordic theme
Colour and pattern
- Egg Gradients - A collection of nicely designed (and well-named) colour gradients for use in projects.
- Happy Hues - A collection of colour schemes, shown in context in mock interfaces.
