8 Useful Cheat Sheets for Graphic Designers

 

Have you ever worked with cheat sheets? If not, we highly suggest giving them a try. Whether you are a novice, intermediate, or advanced designer, cheat sheets are a useful, easily accessible, resource that will save you time, energy, and frustration. Rather than minimizing your program, opening your browser, googling your question, and finding the correct answer, you can simply consult your cheat sheet in a matter of seconds. For easy access, we recommend printing them out and placing them somewhere visually pleasing in your workspace. Another great way to utilize these are to set them as your desktop background. Doing so gives you the added benefit of memorizing the content over time due to constant exposure to the information.

We have compiled a small list of great graphic design cheat sheets for you to get started. Be sure to scroll down and check them out for yourself!
