Over the years I have been experimenting with quite a few different mediums to create my designs.
Even though it’s easy to stick with what you feel comfortable using, I often like to challenge myself to try something new.
And obviously, I love to see what tools other designers are using, that’s why I’ve decided to share with you my personal Creative Toolbox & Resources.
I am constantly on the hunt for the latest tools or resources to work on my design and help me run my business. I have listed here some of my all-time favourites – that I hope you will find useful too – but if you think there are other tools of the trade that I should know about, please feel free to share them with me! (Particularly new Podcasts 😉) I will be forever grateful! Enjoy 🙂
Hello, I’m Aurelie!

The Canon EOS M50 is great for filming Vlogs with its movable screen.
