    I couldn’t find a download link anywhere on this page for any of the FREE designs.

    • Iggy says:

      Daniel, I am very sorry about that – I included links to demo pages but forgot to include download links. Now this is fixed and all links will go straight to the download page.

  2. Jay says:

    Sad to say this site has gone completely down hill , popups everywere.. all the content is a bit meh now.. wont be visiting any more :(

    • Iggy says:

      Sorry you feel this way, Jay. I realize I forgot to include direct download links and linked to demo pages instead – but this is fixed now. In regard to the pop-ups, certainly they aren’t everywhere – there is just 1 pop-under ad from our advertiser, and the other lightbox pop-up you are referring to is for people to subscribe to my mailing list and receive free design resources in return, which I feel is quite useful.

  3. Some good stuff here. Thx
