When it comes to design, some styles come and go. On the other hand, others remain popular for years, if not decades. The watercolor effect is one of the most popular design styles in both web and graphic design. Using combinations of pastel and neutral colors, this subtle technique gives designers the ability to give a natural, fresh, and spring-like feel to their designs.
One way to add this effect to your designs is to spend hours creating them from scratch. Or, you could download a high-quality watercolor brush pack for Photoshop and apply it to all your designs in just a fraction of the time needed to make it from scratch.
Watercolor brushes are a great choice for modern design projects that require a subtle texture and a tiny bit of depth. Given the delicate nature of watercolor brushes, they are great for poster design and flyer design as well as invitations and website backgrounds.
There are also watercolor brushes that are more grungy, which makes them perfect for more edgy designs, and you could even use them to create a tie-dye effect on apparel or accessory designs. Another way to use these watercolor brushes is to create modern stationery items such as notebooks, notepads, or journals.
