Why are these packs so popular?

Here’s the secret… Each pack in The Vector Brush Toolbox was made from real source material, and references historical commercial illustration work.

So what exactly does that mean? Here's the breakdown.

We Use Real Source Material

Whenever possible, we sample our brushes from mid-century catalogs, advertisements, posters and other material. We acquire this material from places like eBay, antique stores, estate sales and swap meets.

We combine and tweak each piece of the product so it's not an exact replica, of course, out of respect for the great commercial artists of the past.

We Reference Historical Design Work

When we make our brushes, we pay close attention to the way the brush looked originally.

For example, when we created the VectorTone pack, we spent a lot of time analyzing the ratio between the dots, the shape of the dots after they’d soaked into paper, and how often flaws occurred.

Yeah, sometimes we get a little obsessive-compulsive on the details. But it's who we are!

We Make Things by Hand

Often the best way to recreate these old effects is to make them ourselves. In many cases, we purchase material, painstakingly recreate retro work and then sample the work we created.

For example, InkWash is a throwback to the ink washes that illustrators would use to add shading to their work. For this pack, we studied the original uses of ink washes in ads and articles from old science magazines.

Then we purchased India ink, brushes, and heavy illustration paper. By tweaking our ink and water proportions, brush strokes and how loaded the brush was, we created hundreds of samples.

Finally, we picked the best samples to convert into brushes.

Grab this pack now for $49 and rest easy knowing you have every brush you'll ever need for vector drawing.

    Even though I already had Vector Hero, I had to buy this collection. So many good brushes and textures to keep vector illustrations from looking robotic and sterile.

    Brushes of Biblical Proprtions

    I have been working on illustrating a kids story Bible for a large publisher and needed to take art assets from animate series and make them them next level for print. 350 pages of remastered art assets that look superb thanks to the Retro Supply Co. I would like to show samples when its completed.

    So Many Retro Tools!!!

    I ordered these brushes for a particular project and they worked out great, and I'm really excited now to try them all out. I've always messed around and made my own retro effects in the past but I was super excited to come across RetroSupply and have so many brushes and textures already made for me! What a quick and easy shortcut. This bundle had most of the brushes I wanted for such a great deal, and I look forward to loading up on more soon!
