Access All Areas members can now download a vintage style handmade font as part of their membership, courtesy of Adrian Pelletier. Northern Passage is inspired by camping and hiking in the great outdoors with its weathered appearance, as you might see on an old cabin sign. This is an all-caps display font that would be perfect for any design that needs a rustic, woodsy feel.
Mats Forss from the Infographic Template Shop has been a long time supplier of useful vector infographic tools for Access All Areas members, with four previous packs containing 100s of individual elements. This latest set contains lots of different graph styles, pie charts, timelines and creative elements that can be used to quickly style up your data to create beautiful graphics.
This week Access All Areas members are being given a brand new resource from Simon Birky Hartmann’s The Shop. This Ultimate Brown Texture Pack is the first of three volumes that will be donated to members over the upcoming months. Each pack contains 15 super high resolution texture files of brown paper bags with varying degrees of grain, creases and folds to give your designs a craft inspired vibe. At 5,090×7,000 pixels @ 600 dpi these professional quality textures have a high enough resolution for the largest of print designs.
I have a brand new resource for my Access All Areas members this week, courtesy of Sivioco. Brush Lab is a collection of over 90 Brushes and 5 Actions, but these aren’t your average Photoshop brushes! The problem with a typical texture brush is it doesn’t really behave much like a brush at all. Rather than being able to paint with them, you usually have to click repeatedly across your canvas, building up areas of texture click by click. With Brush Lab, Sivioco has created a unique set of Photoshop brushes that solves this problem, giving you the ability to effectively “paint” texture onto your canvas for a quicker, smoother, more natural experience.
The latest resource for Access All Areas members to download is not one, but two premium Photoshop Action packs from FilterGrade. The popular Light Leaks Series I and Light Leaks Series II packs have been donated for my members, making a total of 40 Actions which quickly add trendy retro style film burns to your images. These two series combined provide a vast range of light leak styles to ensure no two images look the same. They’re non-destructive to keep your original photo safe, and they can even be edited and combined to produce truly unique effects.
Today is a great day to be an Access All Areas member! Dustin Lee from RetroSupply has kindly donated the popular Atomic Age Print Kit for members to download. It’s a powerful PSD that allows you to create authentic halftone and textured ink overlays with one click! What’s more, this comprehensive pack comes with 2 bonuses; The Atomic Age Refill pack contains additional textures, and a full set of high resolution Atomic Halftone Brushes. To round off the pack, it also includes handy instructions and a video tutorial to show you exactly how to apply the effects to your own work.
