It’s a few days to Valentine’s, and if you’re a designer, you’re probably creating your own Valentine cards or gift tags. To help you along, I’m featuring five of my favorite Valentine-themed design elements. They’re all available for download, and free! Let’s get to it:
You could just download this and be done with it. There are 63 designs here in 2 eps files, wallpapers, and a bunch of pngs. The hearts themselves don’t really differ in shape- but it’s still some lovely work. Download Vector Hearts from DragonArtz »
Happy Valentine’s Day Icons (Mac OSX)
I’m partial to the “bleeding heart” icons, complete with dripping blood- but maybe that’s just me. In any case, these hearts are beautifully drawn, very useful (e.g. a card screaming “You broke my heart!” + bandaged heart icon) and also available as pngs. Download Happy Valentine’s Day Icons »
Prefer your hearts a little glossier? This set, free from Spheres Graphics, is something I’ve found many uses for. The hearts are cleanly rendered, and come in 128×128 transparent png format. Download Free Hearts »
I love the crafty scrapbooky feel these heart “stamps” lend to a project. This free download includes 4 brushes, with the entire 20-brush collection available for purchase. Also included for free is a pack of png images. Download Heart Stamp Photoshop Brushes »
There are bad vectors and good vectors, and this one’s definitely the latter. Gorgeously rendered, the zipped file includes the Illustrator .ai file, and a 512 x 512 px transparent png. Download Vector Heart Box »
For those Valentine gifts to sell & buy, you must of course use Market Theme!
