As vintage style logos and emblems have become increasingly popular I’ve noticed the use of hand illustrated sunburst elements on all kinds of retro inspired designs, so I decided to play around and produce a set of my own to give out my readers. Download this free set of 10 illustrated light ray vectors to help when building your trendy vintage designs.

Vintage style light ray vectors

“Sun bursts”, “star bursts”, “sun rays” and “ray bursts” are just some of the names designers have adopted for these little flare graphics, but the best I can come up with is “illustrated light rays”! These things look great when combined with vintage style logos or t-shirt designs. Each graphic has slight irregularities in the line work to produce that authentic hand illustrated effect and there’s a good mix of uniform and erratic patterns.
