TransferTone is an amazing set of unique pattern swatches for Adobe Illustrator, inspired by dry transfer patterns of the 1970s and 1980s.
Before computers and graphic design software dry transfer (also called rub-ons) was a favorite way of adding unique patterns and tints into designs.
Companies like Action Transfers and Peter Pan Playthings provided type, patterns, and decals on laminate sheets with a protective gummed tissue sheet on top. By pressing the sheet against a surface and using a ballpoint pen or pencil, you could transfer the art onto paper.
The results were pretty wicked (even though your wrist would hurt like crazy from rubbing). But with the rise of desktop publishing, dry transfers went out of style in place of “the lazy man’s method” of just using a computer.
TransferTone is our tribute to the mesmerizing world of rub-on products. We researched dozens of patterns and tints sold back in the 1970s and 1980s and made patterns inspired by the era. Totally tubular, right?
Now you can experience the look of dry transfers in your work – without wrist injuries or the astronomical prices!
Included in this set:
- 5 diverse swatches including white noise, netting, mazes, halftones, wonky grids and 80 more!
- Printable reference sheets you can decorate the walls of your workspace with to let everyone know dry transfer ain’t dead!
- Righteous easy-to-follow instructions.
- No talent needed – just load the patterns and go crazy
