It seems that more and more of our designers are discovering the merits of adding effects to their design submissions!

Perhaps one of the most common , yet effective techniques, is that of distressing designs.
The distressed style adds a whole new element to a design, which transcends it from a flat artwork to something with depth and feeling.

Haha ok I’m not gonna break out into some new-age futurist rant….but, truth be told, the distressed style has much to offer!
This is why I have added a link to a distressed tutorial , which I found extremely useful and easy to follow. Often these tutorials can be long winded and full of BLAHBLAHBLAH , but I must take my hat off to Computer Arts online for a slick distressed tutorial.

Just look around at’s more recent designs and see how effective this style can be.

There is no better example than the awe-inspiring Illuminati Propaganda design by SUBURBANHIJINX.

Enjoy , and let me know how things turn out ;)
