One classy turnaround to modern designs is what is so far known as the modern vintage, but being vintage, you don’t really expect it to be overly nostalgic of the olden times.
While this modernism in design can be really appealing without the waste of too much time and resources during the creative process, some would actually opt for the real vintage arts to revive the awesome history of art.
We’d like to recall a few great vintage texture packs that you’d love to discover before you submit your vintage arts to your portfolio or to your clients on wait.
The texture packs are all free, elegant, and of high-quality.
1. Vintage Grunge Texture Pack
The author (powerpuffjazz) says the collection includes 6 high resolution textures, but I’d say the possibilities are limitless as long as you know how to use the hue tool.
The design does not really look grungy as the title says, but the worn-out texture to the classic background does really uplift an ancient appeal to modern art. Best for photography and historical applications, these textures should really make your art one of the most memorable and timeless designs ever.
2. Victorian Grunge Texture Pack
An almost similar set of textures, the Victorian Grunge has a very terrific and breath-taking set of textures that you can rarely see being used nowadays.
Offered by AF Studios, the pack includes 5 high-resolution textures, each measuring 2000x300p. Design includes rare patterns and swirls with a touch of antiquity, capable of making your art one worthy artefact everyone would love to bookmark on their favorites.
3. Vintage Textures
If your niche is into the literature side or calligraphy, a taste of some antique-textured papers would be perfect for your taste. Offered by Chambertin, the pack includes up to 13 antique paper textures, all offered in medium and high-resolution sizes ready to fit modern web pages from edge to edge. Some included textures even feature tear-outs and burns, terrific for designs that need a more realistic vintage feel.
