8 Free Google Extensions for Time-Poor Designers

To comprehend the benefit for time-saving website development tools, you only need to think about the to-do set of an UX designer.

Customer experience designers pull a host of visual elements together into a perfect blend of simplicity and functionality. Using colour, typography and other visual elements, they communicate brand mother nature and guide visitors by using a website.

Taking care of this delicate balance can take care. Matching a particular color or identifying the perfect font can be the small challenge that destroys your flow and triggers projects to blow away.


But don’t worry, designers. We have great news!

There are some fantastic web design tools available in the Chrome Web Store to help busy designers to find inspiration, analyse other designs and collaborate with their team. Even better, many of them are free! These extensions help you save time and improve efficiency, and are worth their weight in gold to a busy designer.

Whether you need inspiration to choose the right colour palette or to identify a specific font quickly, there are free web design tools available to help creativity flow and make your work day a breeze.

We asked one of our experienced UX designers to show us some of his favourite free Google extensions. Of course, in true designer style, he’s prepared the list in the form of a colourful infographic.
