I love finding interesting textures in the world around me and sometimes walk around my town with a camera. I’ve found an abundance of grungy urban decay such as peeling paint, cracking walls, rusting metal, water and weather damage, pitted stone, lichen, gritty gravel and concrete. It’s amazing what’s out there if you look closely enough.
This urban grunge texture pack includes fifty black and white vector images traced from high-contrast photographs. Also included are fifty transparent background PNG versions.
The following thumbnails give an overview of the images included in the pack.
Here are close-up detail views of a small selection of the textures.
Every thumbnail and file name is collated into one visual reference sheet to help you quickly and easily choose the right image for the job.
The textures are perfect for simulating the effects of age, wear and decay on your photos and graphics.
They are also perfect for use as grungy abstract backgrounds in your graphic design projects such as stationery and flyers.
You could also add some hardcore grit and grunge to your text and images.
Save yourself hours of walking, photography and processing and let this texture pack bring the grungy urban outside world into your digital reality.
I love the unpredictability of printmaking using lino sheets. Simple variations in ink density, pressure and paper texture provide a wonderful variety of results. This is a small sample of the numerous sheets I printed to produce this versatile texture pack.
After scanning the printed sheets I kept any tidying and retouching to a minimum to preserve the authentic ‘physical’ texture. Finally, I converted the scanned images to a series of forty eight black and white vector files.
The textures included in the pack range from dark and intense to light and subtle and are printed on a mixture of bristol board, cartridge and watercolour papers. The following thumbnails demonstrate the full range.
To make it easy to choose the perfect image for your project all thumbnails and file names have been compiled into an at-a-glance visual reference sheet.
The following images show close-up details of a selection of the textures included in the pack.
These lino printed texture files have a wide variety of potential creative uses. They are a perfect way to quickly create faux printing effects in your illustrations or graphic designs.
They are also great for creating grungy distressed effects in your graphics or photographs.
The textures also make great abstract backgrounds.
Easily bring organic physical textures into your digital work while saving yourself the time, mess and inconvenience of printmaking. Open an array of new creative possibilities with this print themed vector texture pack.
