    These are really good PSD’s, a thousand thanks. But something bothers me. Are these tons of freebies making us web designers any good, in terms of creativity? I mean, how creative can you be when you just grab these and roll with it as if it where your creation? Just saying!

  • Richard, 02 March 2011

    I think part of the idea is to take something, redesign or improve it and make it your own. The idea that there is truly nothing new under the sun, just our own adaptions of what we see.

    You cannot learn without a teacher or someone who is gone before. Now if all you do is copy then you can’t really call yourself a designer.

  • rajaraman r, 02 March 2011

    Good works! Thanks for the collection :)

  • zop, 02 March 2011

    thank you so much!

  • Jay, 02 March 2011

    Umm, you can’t just take the NFL logo and slap it on something. I have worked with them in licensing and they have restrictions as to how and even IF you can use their logo. You have to get approved by them as a licensee first. Then they provide you with the appropriate logo.

  • Rafi, 02 March 2011

    Thanks for featuring my PSDs (from GraphicsFuel.com) The list is awesome.

  • Taddeo, 03 March 2011

    Great stuff! Love the planet psd – very cool.

  • Sri Ganesh.M, 03 March 2011

    Few of them are quite handy for Design project !!

  • gbsquared, 03 March 2011

    I think freebies are great for designers. I get a lot of my inspiration from free designs.

    Using them as templates and reconstructing them to my own creation.

    Sometimes you have to just think, “why reinvent the wheel?”

  • Imran Khan, 03 March 2011

    This is just amazing stuff… i personally loved Stitched FabricHorizontal Accordion PSD…

  • Oliviabest, 03 March 2011

    Stelian, good job! These are cool one! I enjoyed them, honestly. PDFs look like well made. Thank a lot for sharing the collection.

  • richard hpg, 03 March 2011

    I’d love to use the imac one on my project, but i’m afraid of copyright infringement.

  • Jason Hussey, 03 March 2011

    GREAT PSD’s!!! I love it.

    Working as a freelance graphic artist is so much better than being employed.

    I do all my work from home on http://www.iAmAnArtist.com as they seem to have the fairest payment.

    As a website developer & graphic you can also earn money by developing websites, programs for androids and ipads.

    You’ve got great talent man. Love it.

  • Thomas Craig, 04 March 2011

    Fantastic collection, thanks for sharing, going to have fun with the stalker pass psd and some co-workers headshots.

  • Nerissa Riefer, 13 March 2011

    You got very interesting debate started on your post and its worth a lot of feedback. Very less people are able to talk so well about this issue. A big thumbs up from me.

  • Shekhar, 23 March 2011

    Something I do for creativity is… first try on your own, then see some designs, take inspiration, and then design again, but without keeping any ‘reference’ in front. This way, the design themes and techniques which were ‘stuck-in’ will come out with your own perspective and possible something genuine. Plus, a designer also has to keep up to a deadline, we always do not have forever to invent.

  • Max, 13 April 2011

    such good things

  • Great , Thanks.

  • Hasan Mahamud Rasel, 24 May 2011
