A decade of vector art

This year, Vectorvault celebrates 10 years of searching the world for the most inspiring and creative vector art. What an education. What a ride.

Now, this is not what I would call a “success story“. At least not in the traditional sense. In many ways this is a cautionary tale marinated in stunning digital art. Some of the best I could find.

So, who am I?

Just some guy.
You could look through my portfolio if you wanted or glance at my resume, but that won’t really tell you who I am. At times, I question it myself. To really know what makes me tick, you’ve gotta know what circumstances got me here.
I’m an artist disguised as a designer.
It’s a secret.

All I can tell you is that I’m a nice person who just wanted to leave something behind. That’s what Vectorvault is to me. Proof of my existence and my love for the exciting world of vector art.

This is a graphic design love letter. One filled with triumph and tragedy.

Even the best of them could use a few shortcuts every now and then. The team down at Hongkiat has assembled wallpapers in 1024×768, 1024×1024 (iPad), 1280×800, 1280×1024, 1440×900, 1680×1050, 1920×1200 and 2560×1440 to help you save time. When it comes to design, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Designers can work hours into the night to produce their best work for clients, their portfolio or their pet projects. To make the process easier, most would use shortcut keys on their regular design and development tools particularly Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Flash, to expediate the process. You can be sure that they are not going to go back to the traditional (and slower) click-and-search methods.

That is why you can find tons of cheatsheets on the Web, designed to help designers and developers make better use of their time – in producing their masterpieces, not looking through the rows and rows of commands for the right action.
