Free Watercolour Text Effect Smart PSD for Adobe Photoshop

One of my recent video tutorials on the Spoon Graphics YouTube Channel was a guide to creating a watercolour text effect in Photoshop. Ever since creating the effect I thought it would make a great downloadable resource that people can use to quickly customise their own text and graphics using the built in Smart Object, rather than follow the tutorial from scratch. I finally found the time to process the effect into a Smart PSD for all Spoon Graphics readers to download. Customise the text, or p...

1000s of Premium Vectors, Without the Premium Price Tag!

The reason premium vector design resources tend to cost so much is that a considerable amount of time has been put into crafting them to ensure they’re premium quality. Artists and Illustrators spend hours painting and drawing each graphic by hand, or sourcing them from rare materials most of us just don’t have available to us. Typically a vector graphics product is sold in the region of $20-$30, and provides a good collection of elements to use in your projects, but the price soon starts to add...

Everything You Need to Create Authentic Vintage Designs

Of all the different design styles, the vintage look is the most difficult to pull off, unless you have the right materials. Authenticity is the key when it comes to creating realistic vintage artwork, otherwise you end up with a cheap looking digital knock off. Nothing replicates the charm and character of the vintage style quite like actual items from the era which have slowly aged and weathered over years upon years to produce the most authentic tools possible. However, you might not have a s...
