Below are some of my most used sites when designing.

 

Here is Adobe Colour CC, it helps find interesting colour schemes.

This is another tool to help with choosing colours, this is more relevant to app design. It really helped me refine my colour palette for my app.

99Designs is a great site I highly recommend for designers looking for some extra cash and experience. You sign up and they have contests where you are given a brief and you design something, from logos to apps, and then if you win, you can get money! Some is small amounts of money, like $100, but some are over $1000.99designs

If you’re like be and prefer writing out rough sketches on paper, then this next link is one you’ll love. It’s Android sketch paper! I write a lot of storyboards when planning to film, and so it a very similar concept. However it doesn’t have a grid like the iOS version I am about to show you.

And of course, Pinterest. It is a great tool for organising all of your inspiration for app design. If you use Chrome, I highly recommend using the Pinterest add-on extension which allows you to pin almost any image from any site that you are on. Below is a link to my Pinterest App Design board.
