This is a collection of 48 design elements, mostly found in various old typographic catalogs. All the design are drawn in a 2D CAD software and transformed into vector file format.

In the past, such simple typographic design elements (types) were commonly used to decorate books, magazines, invitation cards, etc.  In other words, they were necessary in the work of almost every printing shop. There were companies that made a large number of types with different patterns and supplied printing shops/houses with them. These companies also created catalogs in which they published collections of types, and it is precisely these catalogs that have helped us draw the collection in front of you.

In the picture you can see what they look like and if you have an idea how to use them, you can download them in 2D CAD (dwg) or vector (svg and eps) file formats.


Basically, all the design elements in the collection are more than 100 years old, but don't let that fool you - they are equally applicable today as when they were made. You just need to have some good ideas and be creative, that’s all! Then you will see that the application of these patterns won’t be a problem at all. To be able to edit or modify these design elements, you need to have installed 2D CAD or vector software.
