Top 20 Mesmerizing Architecture Photos to Give You Building Envy

by Caroline Mercurio on May 4, 2017 No comments

Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames—if you know architecture, you know these architects. And if you don’t, you’ve probably sat in one of their chairs before. The art of architecture can often be overlooked. Even though we walk down the streets surrounded by skyscrapers designed by great minds who first imagined these structures in their dreams, we don’t always consider the amount of love and care that goes into these designs—all you have to do is look up.

Balance, repetition, and rhythm are all design principles you know and use in your own design work—but did you know it’s applicable in the world of architecture, as well? That’s why architectural photos can be so appealing. Composition is just as necessary for a building as it is for a banner ad—and it translates into the photography. Which is why we’ve decided to round up some of the most visually appealing architecture snaps in our library. Try not to get too envious.

Trending This Week: Retro Destination Postcards from Stock Vectors

by Caroline Mercurio on February 15, 2017 No comments

Designers can be inspired by just about anything—and what’s more inspiring than traveling to a new destination? This week we caught onto a trend that really captures the wanderlust hibernating within each of us: destination illustrations influenced by the look and feel of retro postcards. Designer Ludmila Shevchenko grabbed our attention with her colorful, geometric design of Lofoten—a wanderlust-worthy destination far away—so we decided to recreate the look using stock vectors from our library.

Check out this rendition inspired by the snow-topped latitudes of Denver, Colorado.

Download the stock vector illustration we used in this postcard design.

 

To create this simple geometric design, we selected elements from the original vector to refine the image to what we had envisioned, and then added additional elements within Adobe Illustrator. You could also choose vector elements from our stock image library and combine them with your own shapes and designs.

With stock vectors you can design an actual postcard—yes, on real life paper. You can also create an illustration for your website or brand collateral, and you can also add these illustrations within your app or web design. The options are limitless!

Ready to design your own retro destination postcard? Check out our collection of travel-ready vectors.
