It’s been awfully quiet on the blog and it’s time to finally break the silence. I’m pleased to release my first set of iPhone and Android typography wallpapers of 2014. Those of you who have been following me on Instagram know that I’ve gotten in hand-lettering over the past couple of months. These wallpapers are a snapshot of what I’ve been up to lately and feature some of my favourite typography quotes. All photographs are ming and were taken during an road trip from Denver, CO to Seattle, WA in 2012.

It’s been a while since I released a new set of freebies. While working on a client project today I realised that I hadn’t published these 10 Free High Resolution Light Grunge Textures yet This is set 2 of 2, the first half is available here. I’m always aiming to only share the highest quality resources which is why each texture is a stunning 3200px wide. This makes them perfect for web and print purposes. All of these are graphite stick rubbings of various paper and surface textures. You could use them to give your type treatments a subtle grunge effect or to lightly distress your vector designs. Don’t be afraid to experiment! As always, the textures are free for both personal and commercial use. You can either download each texture individually or download the whole set at the bottom of the post. I hope you can put them to good use!
It’s an absolute pleasure to release these 11 Free High Resolution Light Grunge Textures. Each one is a stunning 3200px wide which makes them perfect for web and print purposes. I’ve recently bought a graphite stick and these textures are the result of experimenting with different surface textures. You can incorporate them into your backgrounds or use them to lightly distress your type and designs. Though I’m sure that you can think of loads more ways to use them. As always, they’re free for both personal and commercial use. You can either download each texture individually or download the whole set at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
Today’s freebie set is all about grunge. It’s a pleasure to present to you the latest Photoshop brush set consisting of 11 free high resolution grunge borders. The grunge lines were created by rubbing a graphite stick over straight edges of different objects. As you can see from the banner these PS brushes are great to create grunge borders around your designs as well as to simulate hand-drawn lines. The reason why the lines are diagonal are so that I could make them as large as possible. All lines are between 3000px and 3500px in length. I know that some people prefer to work with textures which is why I made the source files available too. You can download all 11 grunge lines as a single high resolution jpg. All you need to do is cut out the line you require and paste it into your design.
It’s been a while since I released a new texture set and imagine my surprise when I realised that I never published these 10 Free High Resolution “Rolled Paint Grunge” Textures that were used for the Rolled Paint PS Brush Set 2. If you’re a regular reader then you know that I love my resources extra large. That’s why all the textures are a minimum of 3000 pixels in size, making them ideal for web and print purposes alike. The small previews don’t really do them justice so I’ve included a few closeups to show the detail. They’re fantastic for background images or to grunge up your designs, giving them a nice organic touch. You can either download each texture individually or download the whole set at the bottom of the post.
I’m pleased to release these new freebies: 12 free bicycle silhouette vectors. With the Tour de France in full speed and hitting the first serious mountain stage today there’s no better time to get your hands on these beautiful bike vectors. I’m a huge fan of the TdF and it’s great to see two riders from Luxembourg in the top 5. As you can imagine there aren’t many sport discipline where I can root for someone from my home country, let alone 2.
The set contains vectors of racing bikes, BMX, tandems as well as some bicycle pictograms. While I don’t ride a bike myself, like many designers I’m in love with the shape and geometry of bicycles. There’s something intrinsically beautiful about their clean, minimal lines.
This latest freebies set contains 17 High Resolution Clouds Photoshop Brushes. The brushes are between 2300px to 2500px large which makes them ideal for both print and web projects. These brushes were sitting on my computer for a while now and I always forgot to release them. They can be used in a variety of ways such as for adding cosmic and nebulae elements to your designs. Why not alter them using the warp and smudge tools in Photoshop. Alternatively you could create simple backgrounds with these for your design. Feel free to share your experiments with us! As always these hi-res Photoshop brushes are free for commercial and personal use.
