What sort of designer doesn't like a good set of quality textures?
It has been almost 3 months since a freebie was last posted on DCandies, so we’d better get the ball rolling again!
This pack of designer-candy contains 10 high resolution creased-paper textures. They come with a subtle half tone dot effect and are perfect for adding interesting paper-fold details to your work.
I created this set of textures a few months ago for my own personal use. I needed some high resolution fold textures to overlay on a series of vintage flyer designs.
The designs I were working on needed a subtle halftone print effect adding to them. I tried a various techniques, such as using the super useful halftone dot patterns across the page, but eventually settled on a more subtle usage – limiting the dots to the paper fold creases.

I scanned in a bunch of folded paper and processed the images in Photoshop. Using a variety of masks, I isolated the creased areas of the paper and added the halftone effect. In my opinion, the end result turned out great, and far more interesting than your standard set of creased paper textures.
This overlayed halftone pattern looks even sweeter when you invert the colours of the texture.
