3 Additional Top Sites for Free Vector Illustrations

Most people would like access to design elements and graphic resources, especially if they are either designers or small business owners getting started with their blogs and marketing materials.   And when those resources are free that makes obtaining them a whole lot sweeter! However, many will scoff at the idea of “free” resources,  simply because in the Web 2.0 age, this can sometimes mean cheap and poor quality images.  However, I have done the research for you and want to add these three additional sites as a great resource for aspiring and up-and-coming designers and anyone who wants to move beyond basic clip art.  (Just a reminder though, you will need to know how to open the .ai and .eps files and in some cases own the software in which the images were created. Some files are provided in other formats).

This list is different from my last post because although the websites provide high quality and high res images; they either specialize on the type of graphic elements they provide or they provide a range of graphic elements from icons to typography available for your use.

Of course, as mentioned in a previous article,  make sure that you check the licensing requirements of any graphics that you download and follow the designer’s request regarding attribution, if any.
