Anyone involved in the development of a digital product has always relied on the internet as an essential tool when it comes to doing their job. Even though we can find almost any type of information or tool online to help us be more efficient, the problem lies on the amount of results available, which makes us waste precious time on finding the best solution to our problem.

This post is a summary of some of the resources, organized by topics that the design team in Paradigma uses the most, and although some of them are well-known, I’m sure you’ll find some link worth saving.


During the process of creating a digital product, looking up references is common for many professionals. In Paradigma we make time to have a look at:

Mockups & Devices

To display a design within its context of use is a common resource since it helps the viewer to understand its functionality and makes it look better. This type of montage can be quite expensive, so there are different websites that offer high quality resources, free of charge or at a cost. Our favorites are:


In some cases the designers must work on the first drafts without having the definitive graphic material from the client or a specific budget to purchase photographs. In these cases, where we can’t use paid photography databases, we can use the following:


Selecting the correct font can be a vital component for a successful project. That’s why before randomly choosing a font from Google Fonts, we recommend you to visit the following websites.


Sometimes, things that seem simple, like choosing a color scheme, can end up giving us a lot of problems when we present it to the client or other people who have different criteria. Below we have listed tools that help us when choosing colors and finding alternatives to the ones we already have:


Although the ideal situation is that each project has its own particular iconography, sometimes we don’t have time to carry out its own full set or we need a specific resource. For these situations we recommend:

Mobile apps

Due to the particular nature of mobile apps, these have their own resource and inspiration websites. Our favorites are the following:

Ux and Prototyping

In order to name all the area’s most noteworthy authors, we would actually need a whole post. However, we have to highlight some of our most visited websites:

Resolutions and navigations

Last but not least, we will mention those websites that show us actual statistical usage data referring to devices and computers, and information about screen sizes and densities.

From Paradigma we encourage anyone, from the amateur designer to the most experienced one, to add to this list all of those resources that could go on it. We promise we will update and spread all the improvements we can find.

Tell us what you think.

Comments are moderated and will only be visible if they add to the discussion in a constructive way. If you disagree with a point, please, be polite.


We are committed.

Technology, people and positive impact.
