The Application Folder

Under the Hood, the essential design tools for a creative freelancer.

Risky statement right! I can hear the Linux using GIMP running graphic designer reading up their soapbox’s as I write this but in my opinion this, non-exhaustive, list off apps are an absolute must for the creative freelancer.

I have used many weird and wonderful applications over the years, some great and some, well, not so great! But having reached the wise age of thirty one i’d like to think I have whittled down and weeded out the worst and best apps to be left with a powerful arsenal of creative destruction.
