I love mid-century design. No surprise, right?
But finding ideas and inspiration is a time-consuming pain in the butt.
Why? Because you have to look all over the place for this stuff. Yeah, sometimes it's fun but it ends up turning into a black hole of searching.
Next thing you know you've been looking for ideas for 2 hours.
Then it's time for lunch and half your day is gone.
We've been creating retro-inspired goods for designers four years now. During that time we've built a stockpile of retro inspiration. We literally have Dropbox files overflowing with ideas so we're never at a loss.
After getting hundreds of emails over the years it finally occurred to us that we should package this stuff up for our customers.
So we created a 4-week subscription pack and called it The Mid-Century Throwback Pack.
It includes four handy PDF guides that you can easily pull ideas from for your illustration and design work. These PDF's come with useful extras like color swatches, free font downloads, layout cheat sheets, and more.
These guides are super-easy to use, guaranteed to save you time, and make your work look great.
Here's some cool stuff I love about this pack:
Every week for the next 4 weeks you'll receive a new mid-century design guide. Each one focusing on a different aspect of mid-century design. Guides you'll receive include The Mid-Century Color Catalog, The Mid-Century Font Guide, Styles & Trends of Mid-Century America, and one more (we're still deciding what the final one will be).
With each pack, you receive we'll also be sending you a value-added bonus. What's a value-added bonus you ask? It's a unique digital item that enhances the value of the guide you receive each week.
For example, when you buy today you'll instantly receive the Mid-Century Color Catalog. The value-added bonus is 25 sets of color swatches for Photoshop and Illustrator (so you don't have to manually add the color swatches from the guide).
These packs are being offered at an Early Bird price to our very best customers. So we're only making 200 packs available at this special price. That means you'll get this at least 6 weeks before the general public. Plus, you get that Early Bird discount!
Getting fun and useful stuff in your inbox is cool. Plus, when you receive guides like this delivered over time it's like a boost of super-condensed inspiration each week. In fact, from previous customers that have received our subscription packs have told us this was one of the most useful parts about buying the packs.
You pay one time. Then each week for the next 4 weeks we'll send you a new Mid-Century Throwback Pack guide. One pack today, then one pack each week after that.
These packs have been selling like crazy. Probably because they're insanely useful, the price is stupid low, and you get a surprise in your inbox each week.
There are 200 packs available and if the last pack is any indication this will sell out FAST. My guess would be within 6-12 hours max.
Some customers were frustrated that the deal sold out so quick. So I wanted to give you a good amount of warning.
If you want to get a new pack delivered each week (plus, bonuses) then grab the pack NOW. I'm not trying to create buzz here - this happened last time and I just want to make sure people aren't upset or surprised when it's gone.
Thanks for supporting the shop!
If you've ever browsed through an old science textbook you've probably seen stippling.
Stippling was invented by Giulio Campagnola in approximately 1510. By using the same color but different densities and sizes of dots Guilio was able to create the illusion of different shades in illustrations (you can think of stippling as the great-grandfather of halftones).
This set of brushes created by illustrator/Photoshop brush wizard Alex Dukal makes recreating these stippling effects so easy it will seem like magic!
Packs like this could easily go for $50 or more. Even at that price the quality of the effect and time you save would pay for itself in one project. But Alex is letting us offer this pack to you for just $19.
That's right, for less than the price of a large pizza with cheesy sticks you can get what can only be described as the best stippling brushes known to man.
Grab the pack today for just $19!
This set of tools were made with the latest Photoshop CC, a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and an old Wacom Graphire 4 using the default configuration. These brushes have also been tested with PS CS5.5 and CS6. Using another combination? The brushes will probably respond a little bit different, so be sure to take care of that.
A collection of hand curated vintage hand-lettering books that cost over $10,000 to acquire. Delivered in high-quality PDF format.
Hand lettering and sign painting have experienced a resurgence in the past few years.
Designers that know how to do hand lettering get more jobs and make more money because it's in such high demand.
But learning hand lettering is time-consuming and hard.
Like any skill the best way to excel quickly and make great work is to build on a rock solid foundation.
Luckily, our good friend Jason Carne at Lettering Library has been curating a library of rare vintage lettering books worth over $10,000.
The Lettering Library Mega Bundle is a master class in the art of hand lettering and sign painting. With 117 rare books packed with real life exercises, lettering theory, inspiration, and plenty of diagrams and examples, you'll never need to buy another lettering book again.
When this bundle went on sale earlier this year designers and hand lettering enthusiasts went bananas for it.
Here's just some of the areas that the Lettering Library Mega Bundle tackles:
If you were to try to hunt down and buy these books yourself, you would easily spend over $10,000 (not including all the time it would take to find them)
If you were to purchase the PDF's from Jason any regular day they would cost between $500 and $700. These books are so dense with information it would be worth every penny. You can study and practice from these books the rest of your life.
But for a limited time, Jason gave us the okay to offer you this pack for just $197. That's 39% less than you would pay any other week of the year for the complete collection!
Last time this bundle was offered it was purchased by hundreds of lettering artists in just a few days!
Jason told me he won't be selling it again for this price for a LONG time (maybe never). So this is a no-brainer.
The Lettering Library Mega Bundle is your secret weapon to becoming a hand lettering genius. Grab it now!
Note: In case it isn't 100% obvious this pack won't magically make you a lettering genius. You'll need to put in the work. But each time you practice you'll know you have the absolute best resources available. Plus, you can even brag to your designer friends that you have a digital collection of rare books that are next to impossible to find.
Bonus: Download a FREE lettering book from the pack. Just this one book in the pack includes resources like working with pencils, brushes, speedballs, letter spacing, stylized lettering, calligraphy, and more!
Remember, this is just one of 117 books in the collection. You can own all 117 of them for just $197.
"I bought it within 5 seconds of seeing it (which is faster than I make impulse buys in the chips section of the grocery store). Treat yo self to this invaluable resource OR boyfriends/girlfriends of letterers: buy this for your type-obsessed significant other and win holiday gift giving for life."
"All my design, illustration, type friends... CHECK THIS OUT! Jason Carne has assembled the Avengers of type instruction and cataloging. This is an insane deal and you should check it out! Jason is the real deal."
"Lettering Library is a great source of inspiration for all typography artists and designers."
"Easiest decision I've made all year."
I think this is obvious, but just to be clear, this pack is a collection of 117 PDFs created from Jason's collection of authentic vintage lettering books. You are not buying physical books.
Note: The discounted price is based on the cost of these books if you were to purchase them individually from Lettering Library.
Warning: This pack is deeply discounted. As a result we reserve the right to end the sale and increase the price at anytime. This price is only available as long as it is on this page.
