Design Tools for Monday 🧰

Welcome to Design Tools for Monday. This is our second round of design tools. Here we show what tools we’ve been using or new ones we discovered for the past months. Here’s what’s on the menu:

1. Slack

You can chat directly with someone or create specific conversation channels. Also, it allows you to send files and integrates effortlessly with many design platforms.

Slack has a dedicated app page with bots and plugins that you can install to improve your work.

2. Eventbot Calendar

We use Eventbot Calendar a lot to schedule our meetings and weekly home office days.

You can create and name an event, receive notifications and integrate with your calendar.

3. Google Docs

In one place you have the equivalent of Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Calendar, and they are all for free.

You can use it in all areas of your work, to integrate work and personal schedules such as holidays and anniversaries, to do team office management, to write text documents and make your own presentations. Also, you can receive notifications into your smartphone.

4. Google Drive

Google Drive is a cloud storage service. It’s a place online where you can store all your documents and expand the capacity of your hard drive. You can share folders with others and restrict access to specific functions.

If you have a Gmail account you have 15GB for free.

5. Trello

It’s very easy to create and edit boards and to drag and drop them. Besides that, if you use Jira, Slack, Invision, Google Drive and other apps, it’ll be a boost for your workflow because Trello can integrate with them.

6. Todoist

7. WeTransfer

Simply upload your file(s), choose your destination email and that’s it!

8. Fontbase

It’s very useful for teams that share editable documents; even clients are adopting it.

If you don’t have a specific typeface, just install Fontbase, turn it on and magically solve all your problems.

9. iOS Resolution

10. Usepanda

You can access the most relevant and useful websites for your specific purposes all in one location. You can personalize new browser tabs the way you want, with the information you want.

Dribbble, Awwwards, Medium, CSS-Tricks, Smashing Magazine, Wired, and many, many other great sources.

For now, that’s all folks! Stay tuned for the next round of tools.🤓 🧰
