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.
I have a special freebie for you to download today courtesy of Design Cuts. They’ve kindly donated a free sample pack from their new collection of Grungy Paper & Card textures for my readers to enjoy. The pack contains 5 high resolution texture images that are great for adding vintage overlays to your photos or providing a cool background for your designs.
Bristly brush strokes are great for creating distressed designs with a hand made appearance. I’ve posted plenty of Photoshop brushes in the past, but I haven’t shared much in the way of Illustrator brushes, until now! Download this free pack of 24 vector brushes for Illustrator. Each brush stroke can be used as either a standalone graphic in your designs or applied with the Brush or Pencil tool to add rough texturing to your artwork.
I’ve been busy drawing and tracing various vector graphics in order to create a comprehensive logo & icon kit for my latest free design resource. The Wilderness Survival Kit is a collection of 60+ vector graphics and 7+ ready made editable logo templates based on the popular theme of the great outdoors. Easily build logos, emblems, badges and t-shirt designs for all kinds of outdoor pursuits such as camping, fishing, scouting, hunting and bushcrafting.
I made a right mess of my scanner in order to bring you my latest set of free design resources! These dust & scratches textures are made to resemble the grain that is commonly seen on old film, providing an easy way to achieve that classic look with your modern digital images. They were made by rustling a tatty old hessian potato sack over my scanner to collect varying amounts of dust and fibre particles to create a series of 5 authentic textures in 300ppi JPEG and vector format.
The latest set of freebies I’ve been working on is a little unusual, but hopefully it will be the perfect resource for designers working on vintage style artwork based on the theme of BBQs, butchery, culinery or maybe even hunting. Download this free set of editable vector animal illustrations with hand lettering style text, similar to the traditional meat cut charts used by butchers.
