The Artifex Forge is proud to present this all-inclusive pack, which contains everything you need to create your own vector blueprint designs - patterns, graphic styles, brushes and textures!
I've always loved the look of blueprints, which are simply reproductions of technical drawings that document architectural or industrial designs and have been used since the 19th century. I find that the annotated elements really add to the design aesthetic, creating some interesting features which were never meant to be part of the end product but, by accident, give it a real sense of authenticity and life. With this product now you too can bring this classic, workmanlike feel quickly and easily into your designs!
Here's everything that's included in this comprehensive toolkit:
Transform vector text and shapes with these one-click effects. Simply select a vector and click on one of the 58 styles the graphic styles tab. I've supplied them in white but instructions are included explaining how you can easily adjust the colors to suit your own design needs.
The Repeat Patterns:
20 realistic grid and blueprint patterns are included. They are the perfect base to your blueprint design - use them as a background or to fill vector shapes in your main design. Each has a transparent background so you can add a color or gradient behind. They are supplied in white but I've included instructions explaining how to adjust the colors.
This set of 37 Illustrator Brushes is perfect for adding that extra bit of authenticity to your designs. The range includes arrows, measurement arrows, dots and dashes and a border brush. A pressure sensitive version of the brushes is also included.
The Paper Textures:
Fold and crease overlays in Tif format. These contribute to the pack's realistic look. Simply place them over your design, set the transparency to multiply and adjust the opacity. The creased paper measures - 3508 x 2453 px. The folded paper measures - 6949 x 4950 px.
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then edit the effects is supplied. Please read carefully all the way through as it provides all the information you might need on how to load and use these effects.
Please note! This product is compatible with Illustrator CS5+
