Using Vector Grunge Graphics in Your Work

Vector grunge graphics are used primarily for distressing your vector illustrations. Vector graphics are known for their crisp look, with sharp edges, and controlled gradients. Graphics made in Illustrator naturally have a shiny modern style, whether you're making icons for interfaces or illustrations for print.

Giving your work a worn feel can humanize your vector work, making them fit better in a vintage style catalogue design, retro themed advertising campaign, dirty music cover, screenprinted t-shirt, and more. There are so many projects designers can use vector grunge graphics in that a list would be endless.

Whether your final vector work is destined for the web, mobile, or print, giving your vectors a grunge feel can be just what your next project needs.
