I'm a huge fan of mid-century design.
A few months ago I uncovered a whole new sub-niche of mid-century design I had never seen... European pocket calendars. Mainly Scandanavian ones.
So when vector rock star Von Glitschka shares this set of vector artwork with me, I was stoked! Why? Because they're perfect for recreating this kind of art.
Just check out some of the example art I included.
Now, of course, you can use this artwork for contemporary design or any other style you choose. That's the beauty of this kind of craftsman made, simple, geometric design.
But you should at least try making one of these calendar books because it is a lot of fun!
Grab this set and here's exactly what you'll get:
- 60+ pieces of nature inspired vector art by Von Glitschka (so you know you're getting the best vector art money can buy)
- Versions for Adobe Illustrator CS4, CS5, CS6 and CC (so you can use it, even if you refuse to subscribe to Creative Cloud)
- Laid out in a well organized grid (so you can find what you need fast)
- Precision made for clean, minimal vector points (because clean vectors are good)
Software: Adobe Illustrator CS4 and above
Hardware: 2.4ghz processor or higher
Memory: 16gb RAM or higher
Storage: 4.95 MB
Attention: This set of vector elements was mouse made by award winning design, author and teacher Von Glitshka. What does that mean? It means you're not going to find a more precise set of vector art work anywhere.
What kind of license do these include?
You can read the whole nitty gritty here. But the bottom line is you can use it in commercial or personal projects to a reasonable degree. Doing a simple run of 50 t-shirts with the art? No problem. A designer from Target who wants to put it on 50,000 t-shirts? Sorry dude, that's going to cost more than $15.
Who is this Von Glitschka dude you keep talking about?
If the design world was Star Wars, Von would be Luke Skywalker. This guy has worked with clients like Disney and Nike, written the best book in the world on using the pen tool, created some of the most popular tutorials on Lynda, and is the nicest dude you'll ever meet.
Let's put it this way. He's so good Adobe actually includes his art as example files IN Adobe products to show designers what you can do with Illustrator.
Most stuff on RetroSupply is made by Dustin, why is this from someone different?
Pretty simple. I'm not a master of everything. I know when I'm out gunned and I want to bring you guys the best design goods I possibly can. So when I have the opportunity to bring you products from crazy talented designers, well, I'm going to!

The images in this pack are fun to work with, and the licensing allows them to be used in a variety of projects, including commercial resale for small businesses. I’m an Illustrator novice, and I found the tutorial inspiring and easy to follow.
