I passionately collect a special kind of media in a huge dropbox-folder: Resources that are free to use, not copyrighted and (in the best case) in the public domain. Why? Because i wanna ensure that i do not break any copyrights and respect the artistic property.

Interestingly this led me to gigantic, precious resources that heavily influenced my work. In this video i share my most favorite sites for free images, fonts, datasets and APIs.

Enjoy!

A huge, digital archive of ancient artworks, perfectly documented, with pretty good search- and filter-functions.
