You may remember a few months back when we ran a vintage texture deal with 2LilOwls
. To this day it's our most popular deal ever. The authenticity of their vintage designs just seemed to hit home with so many of you, and we've never seen positive feedback quite like it. 2LilOwls
have continued to set the standard when it comes to retro and vintage design resources, and today we're lucky enough to run another deal with them. We've been getting a ton of requests for Photoshop brushes, and when Tom and I poured through 2LilOwls' brush collection, we knew we had to secure this deal for you. Just like 2LilOwls' textures set the standard for vintage texture design, their brushes blow other vintage brushes out of the water. They're just so meticulous, so authentic and so beautiful I've never seen anything quite like them before. Most brush providers flat out avoid vintage brushes because they're the most difficult to pull off. Some of the better ones just mess around in Illustrator and come up with some supposedly "old time" looking designs that they then convert into Photoshop brush formats.
Photoshop brushes that are truly vintage, truly authentic
2LilOwls are in whole different league. These brushes are taken from real vintage sources. Tons of the manuscripts and illustrations have been taken straight from old French volumes that are part of a personal family history. That means that not only are these designs totally authentic, something which is incredibly rare in the design resources world, but they're also totally unique. These brushes aren't traced from some stock photo that's been downloaded 2 million times, they're taken from real vintage sources, so are sure to make your work stand out. This deal includes 14 vintage brush sets, containing a total of 617 vintage brushes. The brushes include old French papers, book engravings, vintage camera film, maps, retro postcards, vintage illustrations, old-time textures, grungy borders, hand drawn doodles, decorative wallpapers, and much more. These brushes are suitable for any type of vintage design work. They're incredibly high-resolution, with many of them weighing in at at 2000-2500px in size. The meticulous detail and work put into each brush means that even within huge resolution print designs these brushes will remain sharply detailed and impressive.
Here's just a few ideas I can see for using these designs (I'll be trying all of these)
- Using the old-time stamp brushes to create an authentic war-time party invitation for a retro event.
- Using the retro illustrations for a poster to promote a museum exhibition (think DaVinci)
- Using the scripts as a backdrop to a creative writing blog background design
- Using the patterns and textures as a creative background for my social media channels
- Using the grungy frames to frame some Facebook pictures creatively
- Using the quirky hand-drawn designs on a fun kid's party invitation.
I'll stop there, but you can see there are a ton of applications in both print and digital for this collection. I personally won't be looking elsewhere for my vintage design requirements. This collection is large enough varied enough to cover my vintage projects for years to come.
Authentic Design is in the Details
As a designer of almost 15 years, I've come to learn that truly authentic design depends on the details. TOP TIP:
The famous designer Nik Ainley recently shared with Tom in an interview how he adds noise to his photo manipulation shadows, because he realized that real life shadows (and shadows captured in photographs) are never perfect gradients, they're slightly noisy and somewhat imperfect/random. It's these little imperfections that make truly vintage designs so great. There is something that can't be captured in an Illustrator drawing compared to when you get out the scanner and begin scanning in beautiful retro sources. The little dust specks, bleed lines and imperfections may be barely noticeable, but they make all the difference in your end design feeling truly authentic, or feeling like "just another Photoshop design".
