No matter whether they’re made digitally, or using scissors, glue and a scanner, collage art is loads of fun! The pieces I love browsing the most are those with hilarious results, where the artist uses totally random imagery to create an abstract result with a comedic touch. In today’s design showcase I present 30 fantastic collage art projects, each with a surreal (and sometimes disturbing) outcome.
Access All Areas members have a great collection of watercolour design elements to download this week from the Design Cuts Watercolour Design Toolkit. Included in the pack is a selection of colourful abstract brush strokes, painted shapes and a background wash from the full product. Each graphic is a large PNG image with transparent background, while the wash texture is a massive 5307x6880px at 1200ppi. It’s a fantastic set of assets for adding watercolour effects to your designs.
I’ve been having fun making a mess with my wife’s nail varnish to create some new free design resources for you to download. I brushed, dripped and splattered a whole bottle worth of varnish and scanned the results to create a variety of creative assets. There’s 42 graphics in total, ranging from brushed shapes, brush strokes, drippy circles and splashes, available as PNG images with transparent backgrounds, or within a PSD file that allows you to easily change the colour to suit your style.
This week Access All Areas members have a new font to download as part of their membership, courtesy of Peter Olexa from Cruzine. Sailor is creative typeface that comes in 5 variants: Regular, Bold, Grunge, Full Bold & Full bold Grunge, available in OTF and TTF formats. It’s great display font for both modern design and retro/vintage projects.
