Why are these packs so popular?
Here’s the secret… Each pack in The Vector Brush Toolbox for Affinity Designer 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.
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.
