Creative development resources

Often times as a developer you feel the need for some beautiful images or illustrations to enhance your UI and give it some personality.

From my experience I can tell that creating your own can be really challenging. I am fine with creating simple SVGs with Inkscape, but that is pretty much it. Everything more than that usually lets me struggle quite a bit.

Luckily some kind people on this planet create images, illustrations and designs that are free to use and a lot do not even require attribution of any kind.

Following lists will give you an overview of resources I usually use for my projects. I ranked them to my personal priorities.
