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.

Free Rusty Metal Logo Mockup Textures

This free pack of logo mockups contains 20 texture files of grungy old painted metal surfaces that have decayed with years of corrosion. Paste in your artwork onto the relevant Smart Object layer, then a series of displacement map and channel manipulations will distort your design to apply the same weathered look, resulting in a realistic aged painted sign appearance. They perfectly complement brand designs based on old vintage industries or nautical inspired artwork which tries to capture the character of ships and docks.

There’s loads variety when it comes to the level of rusty corrosion, from subtle textures to full on rot with flaky paint and large cracks. All these lovely details are applied to your artwork to create realistic simulations of a design that has been eroded over the years.

The files also contain a colour adjustment layer so it’s easy to find the perfect hue to blend your art into the scene.

Authentically vintage WW2 era textures!

WW2 Aerodrome

These textures were taken from the site of an old WW2 era Aerodrome. In its prime the site was an RAF balloon barrage during the war, but a couple of buildings and the remains of derelict aircraft hangers remain today, providing the kinds of textures and design resources you just can’t find anywhere else!

  1. The textures look very realistic! Usually designers create just beautiful? ideal textures! But these really look like they are not designed, but taken from life

    • Open up one of the files in Adobe Photoshop and make sure your Layers panel is visible.

      You’ll see a layer named ‘Double click to edit’, make sure you click the thumbnail of this layer.

      The logo file will open, allowing you to replace the placeholder with your design by pasting it in and scaling it to size.

      Press Save and close this logo file, then you’ll find your design in place on the texture.

  7. Thanks for these, very useful. One question,
    I have a two colour logo which appears as only one colour. Any way around this please?

    • Try turning off the visibility of the Solid Color adjustment layer that is linked to the logo. That replaces the colour of the whole logo so it blends in a little better, but it might be causing problems with your particular design.

  8. Not only are the textures really beautiful, it was really cool of you to note where they originated from.
