Visiting Rhodes and Symi in September
Back in September my girlfriend and I went on a trip to the Greek islands of Rhodes and Symi. We had visited Croatia earlier in the year, which actually involved quite a lot of travelling round and was quite tiring (even though it was amazing!). So, on this holiday, we were determined to relax a lot more. This meant that we mainly spent our days relaxing at the beaches and wandering around the city (Rhodes) and town (Symi).
For designers inspiration is everywhere!
Although parts of Rhodes are quite tacky, the old town is a real wonder. The backstreets especially are full of character, characters and families just going about their business. The walls of these city streets are also amazing works of art, and we took some photos to capture the colours and textures of these urban wonders. As the images below show, the peeling, cracked and weathered walls create some amazing patterns.
Download your 10 different free wall textures
Texture is an important part of a graphic designer’s toolkit, as it helps add warmth, depth and imperfection to computer graphics that can sometimes feel cold and artificial. These 10 free wall textures can help give your design work a rustic charm, and help you turn perfect vectors into shabby chic works of art. If you would like to use any of the textures from Rhodes and think they would be useful in your graphic design projects then feel free (and I mean free!) to download the entire set. You can use these free textures for Illustrator or Photoshop (or whichever graphics program you use). If you haven’t used textures in graphic design before, then there are loads of tutorials on YouTube to give you an idea of how to use them.
If you need some different textures for your project then check out all the texture packs available at Creative Market – you can also create an account there for free which will give you access to 6 free design resources every week!Download JPG (40mb) Download PNG (18mb)
