This week I’ve teamed up with Design Panoply to share more great design resources with my Access All Areas members. Download this pack of 5 vector retro circular badges and customise them for use in your own projects, giving your designs an instant nostalgic feeling. Inside the download you’ll find a link to a series of free fonts which will preserve the appearance of the badges to give you full control over the wording and layout.

One of my popular freebies over the past year was the collection of 6 free customisable retro/vintage logos & emblems. It has been great seeing those designs out in the wild, helping promote various businesses and individuals. Those original files were designed in Photoshop, so I thought I’d follow them up with a fresh batch of vector vintage logo designs made specifically for Illustrator. Download these free designs and customise the text to suit your own projects.
Something completely different has been added for Access All Areas members to download today. So far members can enjoy all kinds of vectors, textures and mockups as part of their subscription, but now a set of HTML website templates is available courtesy of LoveUI.co. This Picnic HTML Themes bundle contains 5 ready made portfolio and app website templates for you to customise for your own projects.
It has been a while since I last shared any news about deals I’d recommend, but the latest offer from Design Cuts has just landed in my inbox and it’s definitely worth checking out! In the past the deals I’ve featured have been focused on certain types of resources, but this is one big variety pack of everything! The included design resources aren’t just random items either, they’re all best selling products from the biggest artists on creative resource marketplaces. As always the price is squashed so much it becomes amazing value, this pack contains $876 worth of vectors, textures, brushes, actions and stock photos for $29. These are some of the items that quickly persuaded me to pick it up:
Traditionally the double exposure effect is produced by photographers using nothing but their camera to combine two separate photographs to create an abstract and surreal image. However, we can also mimic the effect in Photoshop, which actually gives us more control over the final output with the ability to adjust and preview the effect as we go. Follow this step by step tutorial to create a double exposure effect yourself, we’ll blend two existing photographs together with the help of some simple clipping and masking techniques.
Access All Areas members can now get a taste of the awesome goodies available from The Hip Shop—a popular Creative Market store by superstar designer Madebyvadim—thanks to a kind donation of his brand new Hip Apple device mockup templates. These PSDs feature Apple iPads, iPhones and Macbooks set in still life formations with random objects giving a trendy vintage character. Your own artwork can be instantly added to the screens by editing the built in Photoshop Smart Object, making these templates perfect for mocking up work for client presentations or your portfolio.
