These are the cheap design tools/resources that I use to create my content on the site and at the workplace. This post will be continuously updated over time as I acquire more tools and resources. I will also include inspirational websites for my own archiving.

FREE TOOLS WITH PAID FEATURES
Most of the graphics I created on this website would have been made using Canva. I have the paid version but the free version is pretty useful as well! I would say it is a cheap alternative to Adobe Illustrator. It is ideal for content creators who are just starting out. It offers a wide variety of templates for all types of graphic/written content, such as resumes, website banners and more!
The interesting thing about being a Singaporean born in the 90s is having parents/grandparents who did not have many opportunities to acquire standard English. Hence, the ability to learn good English highly depends on the quality of one’s formal education. I think my grasp of English is pretty good…but I also believe in continuous improvement. Grammarly is one of the tools I use to accomplish this.
