Adobe Illustrator Scripts Collections

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Software, Vector

 
Adobe Illustrator (Ai) Scripts are usually third party scripts designed by experience users to help designers saved a lot of time in creating and completing tasks with the graphic software. When Illustrator users stuck on complex works or handling some trifling tasks that have to be done, these Scripts come in handy. One of the example of available script already built-in Illustrator is Live Trace function that handles tracing image (in variety of mode) in just a click.

Illustrator itself doesn’t have all the features that we might have imagine it suppose to provide whenever we stuck on ‘how to do this and that’ in the app. Here come these Scripts made by users for users purposely to realize the imaginations.

There are some users on the internet that create Ai Scripts and provide them as free to use, just download and copy it in your Adobe Illustrator installed directory; Adobe Illustrator/Presets/Scripts (folder). When you run the software, go to top menu; File > Scripts > Other Script… the new scripts will appear here (sub menu). Anyway let see in these list of Ai Scripts (if you found some usefull) we managed to collect and links to their source. Before that,  you’re advisable to look at Adobe Illustrator Scripting Guide & Refference.

 

Scriptographer

Scriptographer is an open source scripting plugin for Adobe Illustrator created to give the user the possibility to extend Illustrator’s functionality by writing simple scripts in the JavaScript language, with a focus on ease of use, simplicity and clarity. So if you’re interested in writing Ai scripts the easy way as they claim, you can give it a try, download and make some scripts.

Scriptographer is also a website (from Switzerland) that provides exchange scripts and ideas among users. They listed their archives in 3 main categories.. and I can say that they’re among up to date scripts available out there, from legacy and up to Ai CS6.

  • General Scripts | 43 scripts that generate or modify graphic objects
  • Interactive Tools | 41 interactive scripts – mouse controlled drawing tools
  • Raster Scripts | 11 scripts that create graphics based on the pixel data of bitmap raster objects

2013 – 2014 Vector, Logo, Design, Trending & Highlights

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Design, Vector, Web

Pixler Express logo

We look back on whats trending along this year of 2013 in our scope of vector graphic topics including logo design, vector SVG, color, best mobile apps of the year and some internet trending news.

1. Logo Design

We can say that logo design trending in 2013 is more on Redesign of existing logo, such as Yahoo! logo that being criticized. Meanwhile a lot of big names have successfully transformed their new logo being better, in redesign term. The most influenced trend is flat design and minimalist style of logo design. You might like to see 2013 Logo Design Trends by Logo Lounge. Anyway here is an example of 2014 logo design that will make next year as football fever once again, can’t wait for samba..? (whenever you enter 2014 logo as keyword, Google will come up with this ↓ image more than any other).

2. Vector

Vector graphic demands are rising on the net, either for logos, illustrations, icons, charts, etc. We can also see some vector graphics site grows over the years. Be it providing and sharing vector freebies or offering vector services. One of the most popular sharing of vector freebies in 2013 are Flat Icons. We can see variety of flat icons’ style being shared freely from many top designers community sites, such as behance, deviantart, dribbble, and many personal sites as well.

3. SVG

Scalable Vector Graphic or SVG getting better support and we will see latest upgrade to SVG 2 which will be better integration into HTML & CSS. What was that means..? In simple words, vector graphic will be everywhere sooner or later, on any devices, don’t worry if you don’t have the right app to open vector file (in the future).

4. Color of The Year 2014

For this coming 2014, Pantone as usual, was named Radiant Orchid as Color of The Year for 2014. A year before they named ‘Emerald’ as Color of 2013.

5. Mobile & Apps

We can see more (and hopefully better) designer’s apps available in App Store and PlayStore, oh yes we would like to see in Win8 Store as well. Anyway, what is The Best App of 2013..? Google Play Store had named 11 Best Apps of 2013, and here – Pixlr Express by Autodesk, is one of them.

 

6. Internet & Social Media Dilemma

The rise of mobile tech and devices had made social activities change the life style of many of us, whether we realize it or not. In fact, in some country, the authority had made some rules to prevent their people being ‘stuck on gadget’ 24/7. People might blames on social media attractions, but to be frank, social media is just a new kind of tool to communicate. We need to be careful on how we deal with it, not to be too dependent on it.. its not a big deal anyway.

In the middle of this year people around the globe being blast by shocking news of the information security related issue. NSA has ‘direct access’ to the servers of Google, Facebook and others. Using a program named #PRISM they spy on us, collecting our personal infos especially on our media social accounts. There came the most popular name in 2013, Edward Snowden (compared to Obama).

They collect 2 kind of data, Metadata & Content – The Verge

 

7. Vectorise Turn 7

Last but not least, we at vectorise will turn 7 years old this coming 2014, March to be exact.. thanks for all your supports, we will continue our efforts in providing vector logo, vectorise services and helping you in our forum. If you have something good to share, or any idea do contact us and let us know.. happy hohoholiday & happy new year

Polygon Vector Stallion

Triangle Polygon Vector Illustrations

Posted 5 CommentsPosted in Design, Vector

Polygon Vector Stallion

Polygon Vector art style illustrations, sometimes they call it Low Polygon, created in full vector, no it’s not the Photoshop Filter setting applied, but these polygons we discussed here are fully vector, in 2D (even it may looks like 3D) either using Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, Inkscape or created using SVG generator.

There are few types of Polygon Vector to illustrate the images, normally using random polygon with verity of shapes and the other using triangle polygon shapes. The Triangle Polygon can be divided in two types – Triangle Polygon Vector abstract in random and Triangle Mosaic Tiles with seamless pattern. We will see the example of those illustrations.

 

Polygon Vector Abstract (random)

These illustration might be created manually by drawing parts by parts if you really have passion and patience, as shown in this vectorboom tutorial.. or perhaps there’re using filter or plugin installed inside the vector graphic apps itself.

You can see the polygons constructed as the image above consist by variety of poly shapes, triangles, rectangles or trapezoids. As this polygon shapes are manually drawn, points to points should be precisely joined to avoid any gaps appear among them.


 

Triangle Polygon Vector Abstract (random)

What makes me attracted with these type of illustrations, they’re constructed with random shapes of triangle polygons. There are no other shapes but triangle, and the combination of colors help in creating the image. This kind of illustration usually best in creating object oriented image, minus the background scenery.

Polygon Objects

Polygon Backgrounds

Also you can create just cool looking abstract background and perhaps you can sell it, like this..

Polygon Typography / Calligraphy

And this style is perfect with title typography for your design or calligraphy art style.. just like I’ve done previously with Eid-ul-Fitri vector khat.

These kind of Triangle Vector Polygon illustrations actually created using SVG generator, a browser based HTML5 engine – Triangulator, and edited using Adobe Illustrator to fine tune the artworks. You may download it, unzipped and run the html (index) file.

Triangle Mosaic Tiles Pattern

There is also a type of normally generated in pixel (raster) based image, not vector, triangle mosaic patterns. Probably the reason of this kind of artworks usually being used as background or just to make seamless patterns of an image. Normally being generated with filter plugins inside graphic editor itself such as in Photoshop’s Filter.

triangle mosaic patterns

You can search some (maybe free or paid) pattern effect Plugins (or Actions script) such as triangle, hexagon, etc. for using with Photoshop to create verity type of mosaic patterns if you like the output.
