Six free tools

01/02/2017

At Fragment Agency we use dozens of tools during the production process of all the digital products we offer. The fact that we are a digital advertising agency that offers a wide range of services and products, always makes us look for the best alternative to achieve the best results, with the least possible time, the highest quality and minimum cost.

In this article we make a compilation of the best free tools that we use every day and allow us to develop our work successfully.

1. Google Fonts

Google offers hundreds of free fonts and allows a free use of them. Far from what happened years ago, when it was difficult to find certain families or we could download them from websites of doubted legality, this site offers a wide range of fonts, completely free, legally and conveniently.

2. Free stock photos

When we develop projects for clients that do not have all the content decided or need sample content, the best alternative is to download high quality photographs from different websites that offer them in a legal and simple way. As a digital advertising agency, these are very useful websites that we use very frequently. Here we collect our favorite sites so that everyone can use them.

3. The noun project

The Noun Project is a collaborative website, where different artists and users upload their own icon creations. This website is about disinterested sharing of graphic resources that are very often used for apps or web. There is a great variety of content and the icons can be downloaded in .png or .svg.

4. Toggle

Toggle is a simple tool to count the time each team member devotes to each of the project phases. It allows us to know the dedicated resources and helps us improve when it comes to budgeting and improving team performance.

5. ImageOptim

It is a small software that reduces notably the size of photos. We constantly use it to perform very different tasks, be it optimize webs for SEO campaigns, when they include photos in smartphone apps, etc.

6. Small PDF

Small PDF is a webpage that allows users to work very easily with any document in PDF format. Usually we use it to reduce the size of PDF documents that contain many pictures. Thanks to this site we get to send them to the clients without any problem and reducing the loading time.

It is important to remember that in all free services that we share, creators ask to be recognized. From Fragment Agency, as a digital advertising agency, we encourage all users to do so.
