Why Use Geometric Brushes?
There are several reasons behind the popularity of geometric brushes in Photoshop among graphic designers. Some of them are the following:
- Easy handling. It is easier to maintain symmetry and proper measurements of geometric shapes when you use these brushes instead of drawing squares and circles directly onto your work space.
- Uniformity. If you are making a series of different or identical shapes, using these brushes would ensure that your next triangle or hexagon is similar and identical to the previous one.
- Perfection. Aside from making sure that your geometric shapes are uniform in size and dimension, these brushes let you have the perfectly flawless output just like how you want it to be.
- Visual enhancement. Even if you do not use these brushes as a major design component, they surely add a little extra “oomph” and visual interest to your design without drawing attention.
- Strong appeal. Though these designs seem elementary, they can look highly appealing and elegant when used appropriately and integrated wisely. It can also give a sense of class and professionalism.
Finding the right design element to lure audiences has never been too difficult for graphic designers since the existence of geometric brushes. As the design industry is being saturated with unique and creative ideas, geometric shapes still stand and remain relevant.
