Vector Freebie: Ornate Flourish & Pattern

Turquoise Flag-Tip

ornate_freebie_header

It’s Monday, and that means another taste of upcoming Vector Set 14. And this one is particularly tasty!

First of all, none of these ornate images are recycled from low-resolution stock. We’ve created each one from scratch and have baggy eyes to show for it. It might be hard to tell the difference in a low resolution web browser, but inspect the line quality in Adobe Illustrator to appreciate the clean detail.

The full Ornate Patterns Vector Pack has 13 ornate flourishes and 13 seamless ornate patterns to go along! The patterns tile seamlessly, so they’re great for filling backgrounds.

Here is one of my favorite flourishes from the pack for free. Still, the whole pack is only $9.99 for hours & hours of illustration work done by Go Media artists. It’s a steal!

    I love old-style patterns like this. I’ll have to comeback and download the freebie when I’m on my own computer again. Thanks for this!

    @Aetoric Design
    Really? I’m not so sure. These ornate flourishes & patterns are great, but it still takes a skilled designer to make something beautiful with them.

    They’re a great resource in the hands of someone who has an artistic vision & knows how to execute it, but I don’t think they replace custom illustration work.

    What do you think?

    These are still stock, so that’s always going to be less expensive than custom illustration.

    This may be a stupid question…

    Does the set contain seamless patterns, or does it contain the vector elements used to create the pattern shown above?

    Weird that I got a lot of hits on my portfolio from that last post!

    I wasn’t really trying to be edgy, though. It was kind of tongue in cheek. But it’s gotta be really hard to find stock illustration as perfect and professional as some of the pieces here.

    @ Dunlop:
    Both, actually. The set contains the individual flourishes AND the seamless pattern made from them.
