But while it can be tempting to splurge, in reality we all have to watch the pennies. And so we’ve partnered with Design Bombs to bring you some unbelievably good discounts on some quality design tools and resources. Check them out below, and remember to strike while the iron’s hot; these discounts won’t be available forever!
Quality icon design can be like gold dust, helping to bring your designs to vivid life. And there’s no better place to find them than Iconfinder, which has more than 24,800 icon sets to choose from, including free and premium icons.
While you can buy their premium icons one by one, they also offer two premium plans for anyone who’s likely to need several icons throughout the month.
The Starter plan includes 25 downloads per month, while the Unlimited plan, as you might expect, offers as many downloads as you want.
You can download icons in multiple sizes, from as small as 16×16 to as large as 512×512, in file formats including SVG, PNG, ICO, ICNS and Adobe Illustrator. You can use them for commercial projects as well as personal ones. And you can feel warm-hearted about the fact that 70 per cent of the revenue goes directly to the graphic designers who crafted them.
For a single user, the Starter plan costs $9 and the Unlimited Plan $29. But you can get a massive 50 per cent discount off your first month, just by clicking this link.
Choosing a hosting provider is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when it comes to your website.
You’ll want fast page load times so your visitors don’t lose patience. You’ll want reliability so you don’t have to worry about your site crashing.

SiteGround offers all of this at an unbeatable price, plus we can get you an amazing 60 per cent off for the most basic (Startup) plan, and big reductions on other plans too.
There’s no code needed, just click this link and your discount will automatically be applied.
