From tools that help in creating irritating task slightly easier, removing cookie popups while you on mobile. Communicating project updates to your clients, creating dummy data for applications. Resources for font, WordPress themes and plugins. And, also the normal fonts, UI kits and icons. So there’s something for almost every designer or developer in this list.
