Happy New Year to you, and happy new tools! Whether you are a dedicated web tool enthusiast, looking for something specific, or just having a casual browse, welcome to our first collection of 2024.

Exciting New Tools for Designers, January 2024.

We’ve got a smattering of new AI-powered helpers, a headless CMS, a budget-friendly SEO tool, and a secret-agent-friendly file-sharing app, among other things. As many of you are settling back into work after a well-deserved break over the holidays, we hope you find something in this lot to help lighten the load or maybe even spark some new ideas. Enjoy.
