Here’s a neat all vector background image I created several years ago but never used for anything. It’s just a simple design with a blue gradient for the base, and flowing concentric lines over top. It’s also completely abstract, which is why I thought it might be useful for something. However, it’s been 5 years since I created it and I still don’t have a use for it. And believe me, I tried – there were several occasions where I included it as part of a comp, but the winning designs were always the ones that didn’t contain this image.
But I refuse to let this background illustration die. If I can’t use it, I hope there’s someone out there who can! And the good thing is that this is completely vector-based, so you can modify it however you’d like without any loss of quality.
The file is in Adobe Illustrator CS3 format, and you’ll have to release the clipping mask before you can make any edits. Simply go to Object > Clipping Mask > Release. This will release the image from the bounding box, and you can make all the changes you’d like. To get everything back to a clean rectangle again (to match the size of the canvas), select all objects and go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make.
