Design Tool | Alchemical Graphics

Most people associate alchemy with the philosophy and proto-science of transforming base metals such as iron into precious metals such as gold and silver. But it goes back a lot further than that, and there are other reasons why alchemists throughout the ages have obsessed over this arcane art. Alchemy is also believed to cure diseases and (most fancifully) lead to immortality. Can you imagine!

Alchemy as a philosophy has appealed to people throughout time. Immortality aside, don’t we all love the idea of being able to cure any disease? The gold thing is a nice material gain, sure, but the search for a healthier, longer life roots deeper in our collective consciousness and has done for centuries.

This has inspired my latest product, Alchemical, which you can find available now in my shop, at Creative Market, Design Bundles, The Hungry JPEG and Creative Fabrica. This product features many illustrated icons inspired by alchemy, plus a huge set of Photoshop brushes and ten gorgeous seamless patterns.

Read on to see previews of the product and learn more about how you can use these designs in your own projects. You can also check out my Instagram feed for ideas.

Design Tool | Occulture Design Resources

I’m delighted to announce that my new product Occulture Design Resources is now available in my shop! I’ve had such a blast creating these graphics in Illustrator and coming up with the different witchy items to include, and I hope you enjoy using them in your own creative projects.

These occult vectors, Photoshop brushes and patterns are great for your creative projects, from greeting cards, home decor, merchandise and apparel, to social media graphics, logo design and brand stationery.

I’ve been fascinated by all things mystical and arcane ever since I was a kid. Symbolism is present in our lives every day, but there’s something extra alluring about magic and mysteryโ€”the unknown and incomprehensible. This idea pairs well with a cosmic backdrop (what’s more unknown and incomprehensible than the cosmos, after all?).

Design Tool | Celestial Beauty Design Resources

Often when we think about galaxies we think about planets and moons, asteroids and comets, star clusters and nebulae. But there is a lot of unseen, intangible matter drifting around out there, just as our own thoughts, ideas, dreams and goals float about inside us. We are brimming with unborn possibilities and the ingredients for change, progression and discovery. There are galaxies of creativity within us. It’s easy to forget this sometimes because we get caught up in Lifeโ„ข and meeting deadlines and getting as much done as possible.

To honour these ideas, last summer I developed my first product, Celestial Beauty Design Resources. It’s my most popular product so far, and although it was launched last November I wanted to give it some fanfare here on the blog (since the blog wasn’t launched until later ๐Ÿ˜Š) in case you haven’t seen it yet.

These pretty celestial-themed graphics were created with a lot of care and include a range of file types, styles and options. You can use the moons, stars and suns to enhance your creative projects and bring a magical feel to your work. This resource includes high-res textures, Instagram story templates, logo templates, vector icons, Photoshop brushes, delicate mandala designs and repeatable seamless patterns.
