Useful Design Mockups for your Portfolio

Useful Design Mockups for your Portfolio

With summer here it's the perfect time to take a moment in the sun to update your portfolio. With that in mind, we've selected a few useful design mock ups ranging from smartphones like the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC to iPads and corporate identity collateral. Presentation is extremely important for any design project. It helps to show the value of the product and give the context necessary to help people understand what you are trying to achieve. A few weeks ago I shared a tutorial where I showed how to create a poster mockup. Today I will share some useful mockups ready to be used in Photoshop. The images below are from http://freebiesbug.com/, a very useful resource for Photoshop mockups. There are also some CSS snippets. iPhone Holding Hand Templates PSD iPhone + hand PSD mockup iMac / Macbook PSD flat mockup HTC One and Galaxy S4 PSD Mockups iPad mini PSD mockup Multiple devices PSD mockups Desktop Macbook + iPhone mockup Macbook Air + Thunderbolt Display Mockup Visa credit card mockup PSD by Mathew Sisson Free PSD Apple devices mockups Minimal iPhone5 PSD Template Free PSD smartphones mockups Free PSD Corporate identity mockup iOS7 & semi-flat iPhone 5 mockup Corporate & stationary mockup PSD

25+ Super Useful Paper Textures

After working a while on a project that I need some textures, I remembered how important it is to have good resourcers at hand. I went looking for some paper textures, and it took me some time, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a selection of the best I found. It's amazing, but some of the greatest textures sites I know don't have paper textures, so I ended up going to DeviantART as usual... and geez, I wonder if there's something I can't actually find there... what a great resource! So here are the texture I found, and I really hope you enjoy them. Don't forget to check out DeviantART for more (but really, these are the best in my opinion). Cheers! ;)

Designer Resources: Cool DeviantART Textures

A cool texture will pimp your designs for sure... and from time to time, we find the best resources so that you don't have to do it. Also, if you got plenty textures, you may practice a lot, trying different styles of texture, from wood to rock, and other stuff. And these are pretty handy. And of course, that are a lot more in DeviantART. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers! ;)
