These file folder illustrations actually started life as icons and were never intended to become fully rendered vector art. I was creating a rather large set of UI icons several years ago, and I needed something that represented a “normal” and “damaged” database file. These were the two simple icons I created for those, but I ultimately trashed these in favor of something more that looked like a typical database icon (you know, the stacked discs).
These file folder illustrations are so simple that I wasn’t even sure if I was going to upload them here or not – but any designer knows that decent folder icons can be useful in whatever shape or form. I’d like to think that someone out there could take these illustrations as a starting point and turn them into some really nice looking vector art.
