About one week ago we released a new website called DesignShock in which we offer free bundles for visitors, also users can register to get the latest bundles right in their emails.
This project born of the idea of creating a clean site in which users can find what they want and don’t be bothered with a bunch of ads or publicity that some don’t like. DesignShock has a fast posting flow, it’s noticeable that in about one week from the release we’ve published 17 posts. By this time, this site is our ‘baby’ so that it’s likely that great posts come every little time.
Some days ago we were thinking about releasing a GUI Set, and we thought that it would be better if it had some of that retro style that is so popular nowadays. As you know, in WebDesignShock we always try to feed our readers with quality content so we finally decided to create a very complete retro GUI set, that can be used in a variety of projects. The Retro-Pixel GUI Set is a collection of 7 Sets which include textures, icons, sliders, boxes, banners, badges, navigations and some other elements.
This is one of the most amazing resources we have released so far, 500 logo templates, including 3D and 2D finishing, with source files. Quality behind this pack is the highest possible, but don’t take my word for it and check it yourself.
Have you ever thought, how can I improve the GUI of my project? well, it can be difficult if you don’t have a base design and try to create one directly from scratch, it’s known that it can be done that way, but it’s more likely that you succeed when you have a great PSD base to start with. That’s why we have created this amazing and huge freebie!

However, freelance designers are constantly on the search for clients, sometimes successful, sometimes not.
