Designers love free design resources for several reasons. One of them is that by downloading a free UI kit, for example, you can see how others have created various design elements and how they chose to organize them.
Another good reason to download free design resources is that they can be used for personal projects. Buying premium products to use in clients’ projects is a good idea. Their quality is relevantly higher and it is a good investment.
However, if you are just starting as a designer and want to improve your designing skills, you will be needing some already made elements: icons, fonts, UI elements and more.
You started on this path as a designer and it is your duty to become the best that you can be and reach your maximum potential as a designer. To do that, you have to be one step ahead of your competition and make sure you deliver the best products to your clients.

There were a lot of free fonts before on the internet, but since @font-face was introduced to us, I noticed an increase in demand and, implicitly, in the supply of unique fonts.
