StockJo is the starting point to a huge variety of content that is relevant to designers. It collects collections, making it some kind of super collection. Particularly for newbies, this can save a ton of time. At StockJo, you’ll find a place to go for everything the heart, or brain, desires.
StockJo: Simple Design, Solid Content
You are looking for free photos, videos, textures, mockups, fonts, sound files, vector graphics, illustrations, color palettes, small tools, tutorials, HTML templates, and other web resources? If so, Stockjo is a good landing page for you.
Created and run by the Indian agency Infiyo, the rather new offer called StockJo provides you with access to all the little helpers that might be interesting for professional designers.
Regular readers of Noupe know that, over the past years, a trend of creating new collections with free content has risen, but even frequent readers are struggling to keep track of them all. At this point, I’d like to point you to our collection post with 43 hand-picked services for free photos, which is even more extensive than StockJo’s supply regarding photography.
In return, StockJo is a lot more widespread overall and collects content related to the much wider range of topics mentioned above. Thus, you can always check StockJo first, no matter what you’re looking for.
There are two different ways to access the listed resources. For one, you could use the free text search, which results can be refined in a second step, by filtering the results by licenses, for example. Another way is simply looking through the categories. As of right now, this is still a valid option, as the amount of listed collections is still rather assessable.
In the categories, you’ll find lists with entries that are all linked to the category’s starting page, and also give you an idea of what to expect by providing a short description. Tags with information on the license tell you what you are allowed to do with the content. The classic heart icon lets you “like” a list entry.
Unfortunately, clicking the tags leads to the 404. The same happens when trying to access the blog linked from the top navigation. Infiyo still has some homework to do here. Let’s assume that that’s only the case because StockJo is a work in progress and a fresh one.
Apart from these irregularities, StockJo is worth a bookmark and belongs into the toolbox of not only every designer but pretty much every page operator. It’s not the universal solution to all issues, but very useful nonetheless. Take a look for yourself.
