Thanks to the unique properties of this material source, in the current illustAC-calligraphy In a category page, you will be able to find content that is different in style from other material libraries.

This article will give a comprehensive introduction to the calligraphy materials in illustAC from the following perspectives.

  • Content composition of materials
  • Types of materials
  • Searching materials
  • Editing materials
  • Materials Purpose of Use/Scope of Permission

1. Content composition of free calligraphy materials

  • Japanese calligraphy
  • Ink style art design< /li>
  • Hieroglyphs between characters and paintings

When it comes to calligraphy, I naturally have to mention Japanese characters. Japanese characters are mainly composed of Chinese characters and kana. For For Chinese people, Chinese characters are easy to recognize. After all, if you are not a scholar, it is really difficult for ordinary people to distinguish the difference between Japanese Chinese characters and traditional Chinese characters; but for kana, you may be able to understand ”の” Particle usage is the limit. Fortunately, due to the high similarity in traditional festivals in the same Dongjia cultural circle, Taiwanese designers can find a lot of valuable materials even in Japanese. Typical An example of this is as a New Year’s message "Congratulations on the New Year", or a traditional love festival "Chinese Valentine’s Day (although the meaning is not the same)". In short, if the designer wants to find something with a strong Japanese traditional style but at the same time If you have more recognizable free illustration materials, then the calligraphy category is your best choice.

Of course, in the calligraphy category of illustAC, not all content is related to text. It occupies half of the country. There is also another type of illustrations: ink-and-wash materials. They can appear as concrete images (such as the image of the zodiac) or as decorative materials (such as borders). Although the word is not written, the audience can also see I feel the strong cultural heritage in the style. This is probably the unique conditioned reflection of the East Asian cultural circle.

What’s more, the creators have combined the above two types of materials to create There is a third type of hieroglyph. The creative text mentioned here is not completely original from scratch, but refers to the deformation of the strokes based on the meaning of the text without changing the original attributes of the text, so that it looks more like The way a painting is designed. For example, anthropomorphizing the blessing "wish" into a newcomer holding hands, or expressing the fettered "trip" as a long ribbon. Design can be said to be a model among them.

In order to get more royalty-free illustrations/vectors in the calligraphy category, you have to search for it yourself!

2. Types of free calligraphy materials

If distinguished by the purpose of use, the calligraphy materials in illustAC can be roughly divided into two categories: element images and background images/borders.

The so-called element map is actually a package of materials with the same theme and the same style. Thanks to the storage methods of vector graphics files such as AI or EPS, these pictures can be split into separate elements for use in actual use. At the same time, because users often use only a small part of these materials when processing such materials, it is not easy to collide with other people's designs. It can be said that this type of picture is the most flexible and convenient type in the hands of professional designers. Compared with other categories, the element diagrams in the calligraphy category usually appear in the form of strokes or circles. Compared with neat and regular geometric figures, the lines formed by these strokes are more bold and heavy.

Speaking of background images, it is a general term for the materials used for background patterns in presentations. Many people think that the content is the core of the presentation, and the design is just decoration. This kind of thinking is not objective: because the value of the presentation is not to send out the message, but to help people receive the message. A presentation with a reasonable picture can keep the audience's attention for a longer time than a black and white version, so as to achieve more information transmission. And design is the magic weapon related to the efficiency of this process. Although the number is small, all you can find are high-quality ink paintings. If you want to enhance the cultural texture of the presentation, then this type of ink-and-wash material is something you should not miss.

3. Search for free calligraphy materials

In illustAC, you can use a variety of methods to quickly find the free calligraphy illustrations/vectors you need.

  • Search calligraphy by keywords
  • Adjust the display order of qualified materials
  • Search by negative keywords
  • By color Search
  • Search by number of people
  • Find similar calligraphy materials
Search by keyword

Search by keyword It is a search function available in any gallery (except designAC). In illustAC, the search object is all the labels under all calligraphy illustrations/vector graphics! Since creators usually add annotations (tags) to the content of the vector graphics when submitting articles, this search method can include most of the free vector graphics in a classic way, and use the material containing the search keywords/words according to the vector graphics. The frequency is arranged. If you don’t want to use the default ranking of popularity, you can try the next search function.

Adjust the display order of eligible materials

It is also due to the characteristics of accepting submissions from general users. The free illustrations/vector materials of illustAC may have quality Larger float. Therefore, under normal circumstances, we default to show you the search results according to the frequency of use of illustrations/vector graphics. But if you want to get the latest material, we also have related functions for you. Just check the [Sort by]-[Latest] in the refined search bar on the side of the page to get the first-hand materials uploaded by the creator!

Negative keyword search

In order to show you the materials in the material library to the maximum, we have relaxed the search precision. This is why you occasionally see materials such as “people” or “fruit” under the keyword search page of “calligraphy”. If you dislike such search results, you can use the [exclude keywords] also located in the refined search bar to exclude those you don’t want to see. In the above circumstances, as long as you exclude the keywords of "people" and "fruit", you can search for calligraphy materials with higher precision. This function supports excluding multiple keywords/terms at the same time. But remember to separate these times with a comma.

Search by color

Usually, color is not as helpful for vector graphics search as expected-after all, most objects in human society can be Dyed. However, when searching for calligraphy categories, it is not so absolute (it can even be said to be very useful). After all, part of the calligraphy coat color is even fixed. Search by color, you can easily limit the display range of the search results. In addition, you can also use this function when looking for calligraphic illustrations/vector graphics that match the color of the article or website.

Search by number of people

Although people are also a member of calligraphy, in illustAC, most of the free illustrations/vectors with people as the main body are classified in the category of “Family Portrait”. Under this setting, trying to search by the number of people in the calligraphy category is very boring. But nothing is absolute. For example, if you want to find calligraphy materials that show "human beings live in harmony with nature", you can search with the [number of models] set to 1 in the refined search bar. At this time, there is a high probability that you will see illustrations/vectors where people and calligraphy coexist. And so on, in some specific situations, searching by number of people can help you narrow down your search quickly.

Finding similar

Finding similar illustrations/vector graphics is part of the automatic execution when searching in illustAC. This function will be divided into two categories according to the interface.

  • When you try to view it from the search results page, the search for similar function will search for calligraphy materials from the vector illustration library illustAC and the silhouette library silhouetteAC. At this time, although the types of similar vector graphics will change (ie illustrations and silhouettes), but from another perspective, these new material categories also provide you with more choices.
  • When you are trying to find the same kind of free illustrations/vector graphics, you only need to click on the vector graphics you want to find. This function is automatically completed by another technology of ACworks-search for images with images. By clicking on a specific illustration/vector graphic, the page will jump to the download page of the vector graphic you selected. At the same time, under the label of the vector graphic, an illustration/vector graphic with similar structure and content will appear. Some of these illustrations/vectors are from a unified photographer, and some are not. Royalty-free illustrations/vectors with similar composition but different styles may also be the key to inspiring your creativity. If you can't find the perfect illustration for the time being, it's better to click on a vector diagram that is closest to your ideal state. Maybe it contains more exciting recommendations!

4. Free vector graphics editing

Want to edit vector graphics, but there is no image editor in your device? Feel that the calligraphy material found during editing has to be downloaded and imported before editing is troublesome? In illustAC, you will not have the opportunity to experience such troubles! For each illustration/vector image, we have set up an edit button. Even if you do not enter the download interface of each image, you can click the edit button that appears when the cursor is hovering over the illustration/vector image, and after selecting the size you want to edit, you can automatically jump to ACworks' free image editor editorAC ( There is a traditional Chinese version). After the jump is completed, you do not need to perform any additional operations, the selected material will be automatically loaded on the canvas for you to edit directly. From the inversion/alignment of vector graphics, cropping according to shapes, and adding text, to drawing charts and co-editing with multiple people, all the necessary functions for image processing are available. And the most important point: these are free!

5. Purpose of use/license of vector graphics

If you like the illustrations/vector graphics or vector graphics in the current calligraphy category, you can download them for free. In order to adapt to different purposes, we have prepared JPG, PNG and AI/EPS file formats for you to choose from. Before downloading, you need to complete the registration and login of the free account. In actual use, you do not need to quote the source, and can be used in commercial projects.
