Download this free set of 10 illustrated light ray vectors to help when building your trendy vintage designs.
This week I teamed up with Ian Barnard of Vintage Design Co to arrange some fantastic resources for Access All Areas members. The Vintage Logo Elements Collection contains 75 vector elements to quickly build trendy vintage style identities of your own, as well as a bonus set of 10 high resolution texture files to distress your designs to achieve that classic vintage look.

Once style of typography that really inspires me is hand lettering that is manipulated to form a complete illustration.

This showcase features 30 beatiful examples of these inspiring hand lettering typography illustrations from various talented artists.
