A couple of months ago I shared some rusty metal logo mockups which allowed you to place your logo designs onto distressed textures to create simulations of your artwork being painted onto real surfaces. I’ve been hunting for more cool textures to create another set of free resources, so today’s giveaway is a collection of 5 weathered wood logo mockups. Use them to realistically apply your logo onto an old, aged wooden background. They’re the perfect setting for outdoors or rustic themed designs.
It has been a while since I’ve shared any vector textures, so I made use of my trusty old sky lights once again to capture more of the awesome dirt, grime and bird poop that nature has kindly supplied for me to turn into design resources! Today’s freebie is a pack of 12 grunge textures in vector format. Use them to erode away your designs in Illustrator or apply them as detailed background for your artwork.
A few weeks back I received an email from a reader who asked if I knew of any circular watercolour textures like those used to create trendy watercolour logos. I couldn’t find any on the web so I set out to create some freebies to share with you all. My sister actually did the hard work for me as she’s much more creative with a paintbrush. I scanned and processed her results and created this free pack of 25 watercolour circle textures, complete in high res 300dpi format for print and PNG versions with alpha transparency.
I’m excited to share my latest collection of free vector textures. This set features 12 screen textures of various densities ranging from ultra fine to heavy and dark, so you’ll always be able to find the perfect level of detail in your work. Use them as backgrounds to add subtle texturing, or apply them as layer masks to erase away portions of your art to mimic authentic screen printing effects. These textures are vector graphics, which means they’re extremely versatile and can be scaled to cater for artwork of any size without loss of quality.
I had to illegally trespass onto an old disused WW2 era Aerodrome in order to bring you my latest pack of free design resources, so this collection of rusty metal logo mockup textures is as authentically vintage as you can get! They’re perfect for mocking up your logos and designs onto worn surfaces to create realistic aged weathered effects. All you have to do is paste your artwork onto the Smart Object layer, then your design will be automatically distorted and distressed to simulate an old painted sign.
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.
