    IMHO, these days Smashing Magazine has far too many ‘giveaway’ posts. Genuine editorials have become too few and far between.

  7. 7

    Gotta agree with Andy and J… These posts are just becoming routine. SM has really fallen by the wayside.. What happened to the intellectual posts that got this place where it is today? If we want freebies like this, we can find them.

    I’d say a poll of some sort asking what is most important to the readers is in order.

    Point taken.

    I can’t believe the selfishness and outright shenanigans of some of you posters.

    New Rule: If you’re going to bitch about free stuff, go to a royalty-free site and pay for it.

    If you are getting tired of these, go to another site.

    I’ll tell you what’s getting old… hearing people complain about something they can simply make a mouse click and leave over.

    Anyways… I love the space monkey. I’ll find a way to use this somehow. These will go in my library… you never know when you’ll use random stuff like this. Sure, not likely for me in news graphics, but I always get called on by family to make birthday fliers etc.

    Thanks Smashing! These are fun!

    Hello! This is a first and foremost a design website. Yes, editiorial posts are important but so is having access to design resources. Graphic and Web designers often rely on these resources. Especially those with small budgets or working in small teams.

    That being said, can people stop griping about the giveaways please. Maybe it would be better to focus on suggesting how smashing can strike a balance in the different types of posts. But in truth it is already doing that. Smashing has already become a vast repository of different subsets of key design information.

    I agree with Doodie Pants 100%. This site is for all. I enjoy reading wonderful articles about design and where it’s headed, but there’s nothing wrong with getting some goodies as well. Saves a buck or two in purchasing them, right?!


    Thank you SM. Keep up the great work!

  13. 13

    Great brushes. I’m never really sure of the terms of these freebies. Can artwork like this be incorporated into resources, such as a flash application, then resold? They are of limited use if not.

    In terms of the other comments above, it’s good to see a freebie that’s not an icon set, but I imagine it’s tough for Sven and Vitaly to strike a good balance between freebies and authored articles. Let’s not forget that overall this site is great and there’s a heap of content for a wide range of readers. There’s not much out there that rivals it.

    Sweet! Thanks Smashing Magazine. Your freebies are always very welcome!

  16. 16

    Since when got people so greedy so they have to complain on “give-aways”? Do you want porfessional stuff, and with professional i mean very very exclusive graphics, go and buy it! SM has something for everone – articles, tips, free graphics, icons and much more, So let’s face it, certain articles doesn’t appeal at all, others are very interesting. That’s what makes SM to a Smashing Magazine.

    Sorry if it sounded like I was bitching. I understand that people find the freebies very useful and that it takes a great deal of effort to continuously write fresh editorials. I personally find editorials more useful than the freebies and was just voicing my opinion that the weight seems to have shifted towards the latter in recent months. If other people don’t really mind, then fair dos.

    These are great! Thank you :)

    RAD. Thank you. I’ll be using it to create a custom sidebar for my Twitter account,

  20. 20

    I love the featured freebies, as well as the articles.
    Do these remind anyone else of Spore?

  21. 21

    OMG…Thanks guys. this is awesome

  22. 22

    I love the freebies. I love the articles too, but I don’t always have time to go looking for freebies. These are welcome additions to the free folder on my desktop for use when needed. :)

  23. 23

    Lots of fun! Thank you!

  24. 24

    beautiful stuff, but wouldn’t it be far more useful to have them as vectors? still, thank you!

  25. 25

    me loves them, sm you made me really happy. mmmmmmmmonsterkill!

  26. 26

    wOw! cool! thanx

  27. 27

    I love lovely MONSTERS! :D

  28. 28

    Thanks for the brushes. You guys deserve all your success.

    I love this site because it delves deeply into the technical and the creative sides of our industries. I’m mainly a developer, but I use photoshop and illustrator every day. I see absolutely no problem with Smashing Magazine posting quirky photoshop brushes or wallpapers one day and AJAX tutorials the next.

    Hey, 100k+ RSS subscribers can’t be wrong! Keep up the great work!

  29. 29

    Thanks for the article. I’m curious, where do all these web design blogs get their content (articles + beautiful pictures)??? I’m lost how each blog has unique articles with all these related pictures. I’ve tried Googling about this, got nothing much but generic article repo sites with no pictures.

  30. 30

    These are great! Thank you

  31. 31

    Not trying to be rude about it, so please don’t take my last comment like that. I think the reason I get somewhat disgruntled about it is because I don’t have much use for all the different RSS Icons and the like.. but I guess I could keep my mouth shut :)

    Anyway, I still visit SM everyday and like to see what you guys have to offer – so in that regard, thank you.

  32. 32

    A lot of efforts goes into compiling or sourcing these freebies. Let’s be appreciative of the fact that SM is bringing so much our way. I cant believe ppl complain about getting too much freebies. Cant you read their slogan. WE SMASH YOU WITH THE INFORMATION THAT MAKES YOUR LIFE EASIER, REALLY!!!!!

    I say oh! yes REALLY!! :)

    really cute!! thx so much :)

  35. 35

    Smashing Magazine does a fantastic job in providing free editorials and free resources for the vast majority of designers and developers alike, there are VERY few sites on the internet that go to such lengths to support the community (for free) so keep up the great work guys.

  36. 36

    Talk about carping! These are freebies people, so purleeze don’t complain!

    Smashing is a terrific resource that I’ve only discovered recently — keep it up please!

    Best wishes to all from a somewhat chilly English hilltop.

  37. 37

    thank you Kate, Jason and Smashing Mag. lurvely stuff made with much love!

    I don’t care for the politics of the comments but I do enjoy reading what everyone says….it’s better than watching t.v.

  40. 40

  41. 41

    Smashing Rocks! Millions of websites out there and have yet to find a better resource. Keep up the good work.

  42. 42

    When I read the uses, I am not sure if they could be put on a shirt as a part of a design and resold, anyone able to clear that up for me? Thanks!

  48. 48
