Free resources for your design

Here is my collection of free stuff that you can get from and use in your design project:

1. Texture and pattern:

While dinpattern provides you with seamless, synthesize-like pattern, lostandtaken provide you big image, you can use this as an overlay image for your photoblending or the background for and typo artwork, you decide your creative idea.

2. Fonts:

Fonts are beautiful, from this site, you can get your free font and more unique, neater than dafont or other free sites, the amount is not decent as dafont and others, but it will give you better choice and might boost up some ideas in your head.

3. Vector and brush:

In this two sites, the first one will lead you to a subscription and they will give you free stuff via emails, yeah email subscription will one day become a nuisance but you can unsubscribe anytime and the author is a nice person. The next one is totally free and the brushes you download is for photoshop, you might find some very interesting brush there.

4. Miscellaneous stuff:

This one is a market that you have to pay to get stuff, but every wekk they give away 6 random products, and if you have  an account there, you can buy and own and copyright for future use. Good news? Registration is free of charge.

Happy designing!

Your equipment doesn’t decide your talent

I’m talking mainly about photography and some high-tech stuff like drawing tablet (Wacom), smartphone (SS Note or whatever).

Sometimes I cry inside a little when seeing someone owning a Canon 5D mark II but he has only blurry out focus photos in his collection, and the way he maintains his gears is worse: camera full of dust, the lens are full of finger prints… but he still thinks he’s professional. That’s one story.

Another story is when someone complains about sketching, like “I don’t have a tablet, pity”, “I don’t have good equipment” etc. and refuse to make good artwork, but I’m sorry, making a sketch takes you only a plain white paper and a normal piece of pencil (oh well, an eraser is obvious), and to be honest, drawing on paper gives me better feelings than drawing with digital devices (yes it’s has some cons and sometimes inconvenient for post-processing on computer but anyway). There is tool for you to quickly digitalize your sketch, just scan them and trace line in illustrator, tons of tutorials on the internet can help you, here is one example.

The important point here is the ideas that you have, and the most important thing to maintain in your way of making art (or even you’re doing maths and physics just like me) is to keep your having fun when doing something, practising is the best advice I can give. Yet I’m not professional, but I’m always trying to do my best. The idea is so important that you have to give it food everyday, and when your ideas are good to go, then thinking about buying good devices and softwares.

Write, draw, sketch, colour, think, code, take picture… It’s fun then do it, if it’s not fun, do it till you find some fun in it.


Learn InDesign – The materials

Before beginning anything, we should prepare the materials and the spirit.

Here is some seem-to-be good tutorials to get our hands dirty with Adobe InDesign, all in English.

1. What is InDesign, what is it used for?

Right in Adobe home page, they provide us a video about what InDesign is, so we should start from that point (clean English and even the subtitle, yay!):

To be short, InDesign is a powerful tool helping us creating high quality documents, and instead of working with brush or effect in Photoshop or Illustrator, InDesign involves in Layout, Typography, Printing… we can even create an interactive PDF document that have embedded videos, animated graphics… Publishing software, that’s how we should describe InDesign.

2. Use tool in InDesign:

Just like Photoshop or Illustrator, InDesign has a tool panel that we can access many tools which are useful and accelerate our working process.

Those are two of 44 useful tutorials written in, and mostly linked to Adobe site, which are free and fast to load videos. So let’s start learning.

Otherwise, if you don’t want to learn from scratch, you can intermediately create an artwork and learn through the process, refer to this place:–vector-5456

Showcase coming soon!
