In recent years, more and more people from all around the world are attracted by the spirit and message of this holiday. It’s gotten to the point where this holiday is a pretty big deal not only in the USA, but also in most of the Western world. This Thanksgiving, inspired by the spirit of togetherness and thankfulness of the holiday, we’ve put together a list of our favorite 15 flat vector resources and illustrations from around the web.
“Gothic” is kind of a catch-all term nowadays, in that it can mean whatever you want it to mean. Still, most of the meanings that come to mind when thinking of the word have a touch of macabre to them. Usually, “gothic” designates something scary, most of the times something that involves death and/or pessimism. Even so, the style was quickly associated with a bunch of arts, like painting, sculpture and modern day graphic design.
Metro is a very modern and clean design language which was initially created by Microsoft to be used on the Windows phone. The main principle is that content focuses on typography rather than graphics.
This style’s application in vector art results in very clean and modern illustrations, called flat vector illustrations. Whether they’re used to create icons, backgrounds, ornaments, charts, design entire user interfaces, or just to experiment, flat vector images are found in designs all over the web and they are becoming increasingly popular.
In case you’re already not aware of this, starting on the 10th of August, we (well, mostly the USA) celebrate Elvis Week 2013.
It has become quite a tradition that each year we dedicate a week to celebrating the king of rock’ n ‘roll, the great Elvis Presley. And why shouldn’t we? In fact, I personally believe that one week is not enough and that there should be a whole month about him.
Vintage is probably one of the few styles that never goes out of fashion. Everybody loves vintage graphic design, vintage clothing, vintage house decorations and any other kind of possible art. And it doesn’t even matter if you are a young professional or a wise elder one. We are all fascinated by the beauty vintage represents, its scent of ‘good times’, its calm and inspiring colors but especially how great it looks.
There are a few styles and themes in graphic design that seem to never go out of fashion. Of course, sometimes it’s just a matter of personal taste, but we can’t help but notice that even though time goes by, styles change, currents come and go and so on, some things survive all of these and manage to keep themselves on top of our preferences.
Music is an important part in most people’s lives regardless of our gender, race, cultural background and so on. Either you enjoy listening to music on the train, bus, at home, in the club or when walking down the streets, singing in the shower or wherever else possible, we all love music in our own ways.
And since music is clearly so present in our lives, it’s no wonder that many graphic design projects you will have along the way will be music-related.
Hey, guys! It’s time for our weekly inspiration share and, since last week we talked about American Flag Designs and that’s pretty much the biggest holiday we’ll be having this month, I decided to talk to you today about…us.
I mean, not us-us. But about us as people. People graphic designs are very often met, all kinds of designers love making them because they look so cool in the end and they can be used in lots of purposes, especially in merchandise.
Since May is almost over and we’re about to embrace one of the most beautiful summer months, June, I decide to talk to you about one of the most important holidays that will take place then.
Yes, your guess is correct. I’m talking about Flag Day, which takes place every year, on June 14. On this special day, Americans not only celebrate the adoption of the United States flag, but also the Army Birthday.
I don’t know about you guys, but for me, this short vacation that just passed was too darn short. And in my denial of having to get back to work and in the city, I’ve decided to talk today about most beautiful of all seasons and holidays: summer.
So without any further babbling, here’s a most heart-warming collection of 12 summer design resources I stumbled upon recently.
