This week Access All Areas members have a great new font to add to their collection thanks to Nathan Brown from Trailhead Design Co. The self-titled Trailhead font is influenced by Nathan’s love of the North West, inspired by annual trips and the lure of the mountains, streams and rivers, and national parks that have bled over into his design work. Trailhead comes in two variants, Clean and Dirty. Both have subtly roughened edges, but the Dirty version is further distressed with worn ink effects.
Access All Areas members are being treated to a hugely popular design resource product this week courtesy of True Grit Texture Supply. The Vector Savior pack is a collection of distressed vector halftone patterns for Adobe Illustrator, comprising of various sized halftone dots; halftone lines in horizontal, vertical and diagonal angles; and distressed texture patterns. Use them to fill solid shapes, or paint textures directly onto your artwork with the Blob and Brush tools.
