Old Stock- Over 130 Adobe Illustrator Actions for the Graphic and Type Designer
0

On Sale now at Creative Market: https://creativemarket.com/Borgeslettering/56658-Old-Stock-Adobe-Illustr...
If you are a Graphic or Type Designer you may be interested in these actions I wrote for Adobe Illustrator.

Graphic Designers will benefit from the ease of use of Old Stocks Actions. Complex effects can be effortlessly produced in record time. This offers the Graphic Designer a wide array of effects for their logos and layouts.

Type Designers- Type Designers can use Old Stock's Actions to add drop shadows and fills to their new or existing typefaces. Every Action is vectorized and separated for ease of use. Old Stock does all of the hard work for you!

For the Type Designer you can use the actions to create stackable versions of your fonts (Graphic Designers can use these for their logos). The sample below consists of 4 fonts. The base font, a solid drop shadow, diagonal line drop shadow and a fill all made using Old Stock.

Thanks for looking :)

Very impressive, Charles, and very reasonably priced. One question: how backwards-compatible are the actions?

Anyone remember TypeStyler - a cool program from the "good old days"

I've never used TypeStyler, but it's still around (typestyler.com).

The company took forever to update it for OS-X and many folks assumed the company was finished, but they eventually did update it.

The updated version took so long and in the process they kept adding stuff the program just is not as interesting as it was. Sometimes less is more.

I always thought typestyler looked cool but I believe it was all bitmap. Old Stock is all vector.
