Exciting New Tools for Designers, December 2020

Jumpstart your next design project or speed up a workflow with some of these new tools and resources. With so many new tools being developed all the time, you are almost certain to find something that can help you with projects.

Here’s what new for designers this month.

 

Everypixel Patterns

Everypixel Patterns[1] solves a common design problem: Creating seamless patterns with graphic editors is such a long and exhausting process. That’s why some people choose to get patterns from stock websites but that can be a challenge too (and difficult to search). This tool makes getting patterns less time-consuming. It includes a gallery of well-designed content, which you can customize and edit as needed.

 

Multiavatar

Multiavatar[2] is a free and open-source multicultural avatar maker. Type something in the input field and generate one of 12 billion avatars. (Everything is randomly generated and free to use.)

 

Lobe

Lobe[3] is a machine learning app from Microsoft that helps you create and train models. Start by showing the app examples of what you want it to learn and it will train a model for you. The tool is pretty easy to understand and you don’t need or experience or code knowledge to use it and you can train an app for free on your computer.

 

Laser Cat

Laser Cat[4] is a silly and fun Google Chrome extension that adds a cartoon cat to your browser that allows you to zap away anything you want to remove in the browser window. It’s light and fun. Go play!

 

Pattern Collect

Pattern Collect[5] is a curated gallery of patterns by various designs and illustrators. You can download patterns for use in projects or submit your own to share with the design community. The library is searchable and you can get new patterns via email if you subscribe.

 

FarbVelo

FarbVelo[6] is a color palette generator that shows a new and random scheme with every refresh. The color choices are fresh and could work for a variety of projects, too.

 

CSS Clip Path Editor

CSS Clip Path Editor[7] is a cool little pen by Mads Stoumann that puts an image inside of almost any clip path you can imagine. There are presets to choose from or you can adjust the settings and paths to create your own image shape.

 

Responsive & Configurable SVG Waves

Responsive & Configurable SVG Waves[8] is a soothing pen by Jhey. Change the background and wave elements for a simple and cool animation in SVG.

 

Veed

Veed[9] lets you host, edit, and deliver videos in the cloud using a REST API. It works on any browser, device, and bandwidth, and keeps your website light, even when delivering heavy video content.

 

Overlay

Overlay[10] is a plugin for Figma or Sketch that transforms components and symbols into clean and reusable React, Vue, or HTML code. The benefit? Use it to create more consistent websites and design systems more quickly and in a pixel-perfect manner.

 

List.js

List.js[11] is a library for adding search, sort, filters, and flexibility to tables, lists, and other HTML elements. It is built so that it will work on existing HTML and be invisible. Plus, it is simple to install and use.

 

What Are Design Tokens?

Design tokens[12] are a “hot term” says Andy Bell. So, he wrote an explainer that breaks down what they are and how they might look in a standard data format like JSON. Read the explainer and you’ll be able to identify design tokens and understand them.

 

SVG Path Editor

SVG Path Editor[13] makes it easy to manipulate paths for any SVG element. The grid – if you choose to use it – helps edits stay symmetrical and easy to manage.

 

Operator Lookup

Operator Lookup[14] is a practical and fun tool. Enter a JavaScript operator in the search box to learn more about what it does. (You can also choose from a “keyboard” of options.) Thanks for the tutorial, Josh W. Comeau.

 

Beacon

Beacon[15] is a tool designed to help you write, run, and share SQL in Slack. It makes collaboration easy so you can work on and run queries, debug, and resolve issues all in a single platform.

 

Plaiceholder

Plaiceholder[16] transforms your images into lightweight placeholders using pure CSS or SVG.

 

Machine Translation

Machine Translation[17] is available as Cloud API, on-premise translation server, and SDK that can be easily integrated into lots of business cases. Both solutions work with 110 languages.

 

Draggable Blend Generator

Draggable Blend Generator[18] does just what the name implies. Change the blend mode of a background and foreground using a draggable tool so that you can see the changes in real time. Just enter the URL of a background image or pattern and color swatch and you are ready to go.

 

Jam Wand

Jam Wand[19] is a “magic wand” for making changes on your website, starting with copy. Click on any text, edit it, and submit the change to GitHub to be merged into the code. Copy changes as easy as click, type, and click again. (This tool is still in beta.)

 

Boost UI Kit

Boost UI Kit[20] is a collection of elements and components that will help you finish website design projects using a bright and airy style. It works with Figma for easy integration.

 

Romanizer

Romanizer[21] is a fun game that tests your knowledge of Roman numerals. With two modes – a randomizer and a challenge you can participate in – you’ll learn to convert numbers visually in minutes.

 

Itmeo Market

Itmeo Market[22] is a new online graphics marketplace with exclusive and ready-to-use templates for a variety of projects. Templates include elements for logos, UI kits, graphic elements, Instagram templates, landing pages, and more. (This is a paid/subscription-based resource.)

 

Bellmoco Handcola

Bellmoco Handcola[23] is a beautiful decorative typeface with fun swashes and serifs. The free version is for personal use only.

 

Bondie

Bondie[24] is a handmade brush typeface with fills in many of the letterforms. It contains 106 characters and is free for personal use.

 

Bovino

Bovino[25] has multiple weights that can work for display or body text. The modern serif is free for personal use.

 

Estilistica

Estilistica[26] is a thin modern style sans serif with smooth lines and a vertical profile. It is best suited for display use and is free for personal use.
