New York Concrete: 10 Free Hi-Res Textures

NY Concrete Textures Thumbnail

The latest texture pack contains 10 high resolution concrete textures taken during my last trip to New York City. I took over 300 photos, mostly of the regular tourist attractions. I did however think of you as well and was always on the lookout for some textures to share with the readers of fudgegraphics. Consider them to be your postcard from me. Or if you like your “I heart NY C(oncrete) t-shirt”. I tried to photograph light grunge concrete textures which can be used to destroy and distress your designs without being to invasive. You may recognize some of them already as I used a couple to make the previously released Grunge Nebulae Textures. As always you may use these in your personal and commercial projects. At a stunning size of 3264px by 2448px they’re ideal for both web and print design. I hope you like them. + Continue Reading

This latest textures pack consists of 5 free high resolution grunge nebulae textures. In order to achieve a more cosmic feel a couple of regular concrete and rust textures were blended together in Photoshop using different overlay modes. It was really fun to make these and to play around with settings and colours and I hope you like them. All textures are a stunning 3264px by 2448px large and you may use them in your personal as well as commercial projects.

His colour schemes and minimalistic geometric approach are very inspiring and unique. Make sure to visit his portfolio at birdbrid.com for more great designs. There’s plenty! + Continue Reading
