A.K.A. "You dont need a designer"

So, you wanna build the next killer social app. Got the perfect pitch, mad dev skills, but no designer to give your vision a look and feel up to standards.

Don't worry. You don't need a designer. Just like @shesho wrote a long time ago, there are so many good quality design resources available today, you can easily start building right away.

I've listed here a ton of free stuff I've found over time to help me avoid spending time designing. Just ready-to-use, so no AI, PSD files – PNG and SVG are fine. I think this his list may be handy for you if you

  • can't afford a designer
  • don't know how to design
  • don't want to design
  • don't at all.

Dive right in fellow developer, and keep in mind: any additions to this list will be mostly welcome!

This is not to say a designer is of no value at all. You'll still need some UX, proper branding, and then some more. But you can get started today on your MVP and have it realeased looking good with a little help from the wonderful community making all these resources available. It's a great time to build stuff up.
