I have a few that I always install and use because they offer so much flexibility. Currently I am using Magazine Basic for a couple of my sites, which allows me to chop and change the layout, allows for widgets in the header, and has the the ability to adjust the column sizes in addition to the layout. The only thing I don't like is the gray box for widgets, but the free version serves my needs for the time being.

My other favorite is The Thinker Lite, as it is simple and elegant. I like the menu bar at the top and the classic right hand side bar. I would recommend it for people that start out, because it's easy to use and is easily tailored to your own needs.

(I'm not asking anyone to do my homework here -- I can and will do my own googling. But would be awesome to get some input from redditors in the trenches.)

It's been a long time since I deployed something that wasn't in a corporate work environment with custom everything on AWS/Google/etc.

Back in the day I'd use Heroku to host small web apps, and DreamHost for WordPress and static sites.

I'm old and out of touch! What do y'all use to host static sites, say generated from gatsby? What do you use for nodejs apps?

Not everyone has the cash to spend on the most expensive graphic design software, particularly when starting a new business or embarking on a new career in design. Fortunately, there is a whole bunch of great free graphic design software out there to get creatives started.

Here is a small list of it:

Vector Art:

1. Inkscape   Platform: Windows/Linux

As with many of the free options available, Inkscape focuses on the SVG format as its primary file format. This highly capable editor has a very good SVG integration, supporting many of the more advanced features that aren’t always available in other apps – such as alpha blending, cloned objects, and markers.

2. Serif DrawPlus Starter Edition  Platform: Windows

Although at first sight you might think DrawPlus isn’t really intended as an app for professionals, it’s actually surprisingly capable, and as it’s offered in a free version. DrawPlus is designed to be intuitive in use, and has a wide range of tools that mirror functionality in Illustrator, but in a more approachable manner.

Image Editing:

1. Paint.Net   Platform: Windows

Paint.net is a Windows-based alternative to the Paint editor that Microsoft shipped with versions of Windows. Don’t let that put you off, though, as it's surprisingly capable, useful and free graphic design software.

The focus is on ease of use, and there's a definite tendancy towards photo editing rather than artistic creation. That said, there are a range of special effects available, allowing you to easily create fake perspective, blend and push pixels around the canvas, tile and repeat selections, and so on.

2. GIMP  Platform: Windows, Linux, Mac

Open-source free graphic design software that debuted on Unix-based platforms, GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. Today it’s available in versions for Linux, Windows, and Mac.

GIMP's interface differs somewhat from Photoshop, but a version of GIMP is available that mimics Adobe's look and feel, making it easier to migrate over if you're ditching Photoshop.

Of course there are many more out there, but these are my recommendation.

Good day everyone I'm engaging now on graphic design world, an aspiring graphic artist to be exact. Just want to ask if your the same as me, who constantly looks for an inspiration and ideas before making a new design?

Aside from this website:

  • Deviantart
  • Behance
  • Dribble

Do you know any websites that looks fun and very rich in ideas and unique designs?
