To finish off every year I enjoy taking a moment to look back at my content from the past 12 months to compare how all my articles, tutorials, freebies and videos performed in terms of view counts. This is my greatest hits collection for 2018, broken down into individual top 10 roundups for each category. Did you miss any of these most popular posts? Which one from the list was your favourite? Or was there a particular piece of content you found really useful that didn’t make the cut?

My Most Popular Content From 2018

Total view counts are down overall compared to last year’s greatest hits, but my most popular piece of content for 2018 was my Illustrator tutorial showing how to create an Isometric Type Effect. With a similar number of views, my 30 Free Film Dust Textures come in second place. Despite the single most popular post being a tutorial, free resources appear to be the most sought after content type on Spoon Graphics, although video tutorials do get regular attention over on my Spoon Graphics YouTube Channel as well as being embedded as blog posts.
