The most colorful fashion brands I know

I love, love color in bright hues boldly put together. It can be challenging to dress with bold patterns but he following companies do a superb job at it.

 Lilly Pulitzer for me was love at first sight, the designs on the fabric are just so cheerful and vivid. You can shop by prints on their site, and see the inspiration behind their patterns as well as a video showing the process. It's making me itch to design a pattern of my own.

Texture Downloads

And another small resource list tonight, this time featuring free textures. The links will take you directly to the textures.

Free (Quality!) Font Resources

Below are 5 websites that offer stunning typefaces for free. I like typefaces that offer more than just one font in the family which allow for more flexibility when using them in a project. I just downloaded Quaver (included sans & serif versions), Ostrich (6 weights & styles) and Steelfish (7 free weights!) and hope to use them soon.
