tools for creatives | useful weekly link from nataliesbox.com

Hello everyone! Can you believe it’s already Friday?

I looked through my blog posts last week and was surprised to see that I haven’t posted anything since Thursday. Thursday, September 16! Last month! When did time fly?

Anyway, I’m currently working on some interesting web design projects and I have to do some creative research and organizational tasks for these particular projects and I wanted to share with you some of these links with you mainly because they are not only meant to be used by designers but also by entrepreneurs and different business owners.

I hope you find them useful:

  1. MOZ Blog has always been fundamental source for all things SEO and marketing – so I know that this one is going to be very useful to you if you are interested in making your website visible in the search engines. I specifically like the updates notifications that we get when Google changes its algorithms so take a look and tell me what you think of it.
  2.  This one is amazing – The Book Cover Archive – an impressive collection of book cover designs (easily sortable by photographer, art director, designer, title, author, and genre), the site will not only inspire you, it will also educate you. Check out Book Cover Archive’s blog for insightful commentary on designs and styles.
  3. Formally known as Kuler, Color is the go-to source for all things color related. Just by moving the dots around the color wheel you are able to select a wide range of complimentary, analogous, triad, shades, or custom colors, and in an instant, Color will give you the RGB and HEX codes so you can go back to creating your masterpiece.
  4. Another useful website that I recently started using when dealing with clients and finance in general is the Wave accounting software. Wave Accounting is designed for independent contractors and companies with nine employees or less. The most important thing to know is that it’s pretty intuitive, simple, clean and most of all – it’s free. Would like to know if you have any other alternatives as I am open to try new things in this department 🙂


Thank you and keep in touch!
