As designers we are always in the hunt for coffee and design resources (and sometimes for our clients to pay). When I need to find resources I usually look for them in different sites. For vectors I go to good old vecteezy and for photographs I always go to sxc.hu (even though their inventory is not as good as it used to be); and of course the classic search in google images. Sounds like a hazzle, doesn’t it? well it is! Just until I found freepik.com the all in one free vectors, photos and PSDs search engine.
Metal finish is always a very usefull effect. But all the people goes for the complicated way. As an apple fan I’m in love with the clean anodising aluminium finis in Apple’s products.

Summer have just ended and we are back to school and to our work stations. But we must party while it is still warm! (and of course during winter to raise our body temperature). In order to celebrate spring we have two hot gals dancing for you all night, and completely free. (Well vectorized ones but hey! they are still gorgeous)
This is a very usefull, easy and professional effect for any idea you have in mind without the need to blend smoke photos to the design. And with the possibility to use the effect on all the canvas without fear of bad resolution.

My friends today I’m gonna start giving you little tips about how achieve basic textures to enhance the looks of you designs, we are gonna start with a basic fur texture (the same texture works to make grass too).
