One of the styles or trends in graphic design that has staged a comeback is retro vintage. This particular design approach was once prevalent during the 60s, 70s, 80s and even way before those eras. When we see retro vintage designs, we tend to be reminded of the social milieu and conditions prevailing during that time. In graphic design, those bygone eras are characterized by the absence of powerful software that could have aided the designers in creating designs.
During those times, almost every element of the design was created by hand. In contrast, you can accomplish quite complex manipulations in Photoshop which is not possible before. You need not have to create every element of your design from scratch as there are a lot of tools and resources that can be loaded in graphic programs easily. One of these resources are Photoshop brushes.
In this article we are sharing with you some of the free retro vintage Photoshop brushes that you can use to create designs similar to those which are prevailing in the days past. All of these brushes are free but not all are free for commercial usage. Please make sure to ask permission or otherwise follow the request of authors in connection with commercial usage of their works. You can of course find brushes which are absolutely free so you are free to use them in any way you want. Just be sure to give credit whenever necessary and whenever it is due. Also, in the course of making retro inspired designs, you might find it necessary to use some Photoshop building brushes. You can also grab those resources to use on your artwork. If you prefer Adobe Illustrator on the other hand, you can take advantage of the free Christmas vector graphics for use on your designs this holiday season. Check them out and enjoy!
