It does not matter who you are, you like design books, you are typography nut or you simply want to archive some great designs and want to get inspired by some out of the box designs, you have to use Pinterest. It helps you to link with like-minded people and people share their boards and pinned items. For those who are not clear what a Pinterest board is, let me tell you that.
A Pinterest board is a catalogue for images that is created by its users. Most of them are public and I found it a great way of learning and sharing what you know. You do inspire and get inspired here. However, finding some good designs that can inspire you to create wonders is a tedious job and so I thought to share my list of web design boards to follow on Pinterest after pure hard work.
When you are web designer, for you fonts are important and the creativity that you can put in is amazing using these fabulous fonts. One of my favourite free one is from Veronica who is a blogger. You get plenty of free fonts that can be used for multiple purpose. You can download these unique fonts free and use them in your designs.
