300+ Vintage Style Textures and Photoshop Brushes

Wednesday, July 23, 2008 - Lawrence Hsu | BC

Vintage design, when done well, can make a user feel like they have been transported back in time.

If you have a project coming up that requires this type of design, here is a big roundup of textures and Photoshop brushes, all found at deviantArt.

Free Photoshop Shapes Downloads

Thursday, July 10, 2008 - Lawrence Hsu | BC

I am in love with vector shapes right now. I think they are so handy to have around when you are building a site. The way that you can stretch vectors without creating jaggy edges, makes them incredibly useful. Most of the time I just land up breaking them apart to use a curve that I like. I also love using them for as badges or buttons on web sites.
