Not sure if you have deepnest.io for folks trying to cram as many of an item onto a piece of material as possible.

The other category might be fonts - font libraries like Google’s, dafont, etc. and the wordmark.it site that allows you to enter text and see how it will look in every font installed on your system in one web page.

There’s a chrome plugin for wordmark that gives you full access to system fonts, otherwise it’s just web fonts that match what you have. Once you get that plugin though, it’s pretty great.

I could have added about 50 more websites, YouTube channels, apps, blogs, online stores, fonts, etc. —- but I really did not want to overwhelm everyone.

I am extremely psychopathic about organization and I have all of these portals of information nicely organized on my iPad.

Looks like some great resources! (And a definite rabbit hole.) :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
