Triangle Polygon Vector Illustrations

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 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.

Visual Design for Google

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Design, Software, Web

Google Products

Google’s visual redesign identity project was inspired by the CEO Larry Page in 2011 to enhance the company’s main products identity including search, maps, mail and software suite especially app icons and the UI elements. The project was then started in January 2012 leads by their senior graphic designer Roger Oddone, art director Christopher Bettig and with their designers team.

Gmail icon design

The are simple, modern, friendly and sometimes quirky. Product icons are highly simplified, exaggerated and caricatured in nature so that they are appropriate for use at small size.

Let’s see how the design dept of Creative Lab behind this internet giant develop and redesign the User Interface (UI) of Google’s visual assets for their products and become guidelines for their product’s UI designers, app developers and their vendors. The style then being trendy all over the net.

The designs should be simple, straight forward and user friendly, so they are several rules to be made clear.

Good Geometric Shape – the more geometrical shapes used, the better and make it as precise as possible.

Design Principle - Geometric


Front Facing – front view and symmetrical shapes always communicate better for user compared to isometric 3D style.

Design Principle - Front Facing

Flat & Shadow – flat design looks clean & beautiful, light and fast loading.

Pixel Perfect – as these designs are tiny and for screen devices, always make sure the pixels are in their grid to keep them perfect for HD or retina screen.

Adobe CC Apps

Adobe CS To Adobe CC

Adobe CC
The New Adobe Creative Cloud Apps

Adobe recently (early May) announced the end of Creative Suite (Adobe CS) and they will replaced with the new rebranded Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC). Expect no more Illustrator CS7 or Photoshop CS7 for the next version, but the new Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC instead, and other Adobe apps. So what does this means to users.. well, there will no more Adobe products will be sold in a box in the future as right now. Adobe introduced Creative Cloud paid subscription service for users and this is the only way we will get the new versions of all their products.

Adobe CC Apps
Adobe CC Apps

Adobe Creative Cloud will be available in 17 June 2013, is not actually a cloud service that we might imagine, since the software or the apps itself will be installed locally (in user’s pc), and will not run in the browser. Users will need to verify their subscription once a month and they will get access to the cloud platform for few services provided by Adobe including 20GB storage. You can find out more on Adobe CC FAQ.


Following some reviews from top site covering Adobe news, we found many users, designers to be specific, all over the world express their negative feed back to this Adobe’s transition. Many designers said they will stick with the last version of the apps they used, such as Illustrator CS6 and refuse to subscribe (upgrade). Here are some negative reviews:


The main concern of haters is the pricing and fees for using Adobe CC apps for long term commitments, but CNet was make comparison among those CS versions vs CC versions, and bear in mind that with Adobe CC you get various apps in the cloud plus other services. See the pricing chart below..

CS cost vs CC cost for 3 years commitment | CNet

Interested to try..? You can start with the cheapest individual fee for only one app, or if your’e student / teacher at $19.99 per month. If you want to try first for free 30 days with limited service, see the pricing options.


Some thought that Adobe’s moved to fight piracy as the main concern but ironically the company itself said they could see an increase in piracy since the Creative Cloud apps are running offline and no guarantee the apps could not be cracked. Unless Adobe CC is running live online via browser might reduce this issue.. though it’s not a good idea.


Adobe has made a right move along the way and with the popular demand of cloud services especially the continues supports from mobile industry, they’ve moved one step ahead to keep their product brands lead. We could expect more designer’s apps ‘in the pocket’ sooner or later. Did you know Adobe Touch Apps for Android & iOS..?
