The previous year brought us a ton of helpful tools that assisted in solving both trivial and uncommon issues. Some of them were targeted at modern trends and mainstreams such as online services for creating duotone effects, whereas others focused on making basic tasks feel less painful and boring such as grids, or CSS compressors.
We believe that 2017 will be no different and will delight us with excellent problem solvers. Our January edition of fresh design freebies and tools is a great opening for a new year. Enjoy new instruments and graphical material.
