Interesting. Not entirely sure what part of the style you are after, but I am going to take your noir as a hint. Actually, I think you are pretty close in your search, but I think you need to use "film noir poster". That will give you a lot of stuff like this: Another search term is "pulp paperback cover" or "pulp fiction". This is the classic name for ...

These are offshoots of Delaunay Triangulation and can most easily be found by searching for "Delaunay Illustration", "Triangulated Illustrations" or "Triangulation Illustrations" There are other tools that have since become available such as, DMesh.

This is really good question. But I am afraid you can't standardize a style guide. There are guidelines to make one but a lot of it depends entirely on the complexity of the website you are creating. The guide you got your hands on is focused on typograhy which is by all means a really good thing. But not all websites can be understood by just that. Some ...

I made this an answer just to be kosher. If your copy is contained within a single box, you can apply a text style to that box. If your text flows/links to additional boxes, you can't apply a style via selecting the boxes. You have to apply the style directly to the text. – I usually do a Select All on the copy within the box, then apply the style. You ...

Both styles, while slightly different, can be summed up as flat vector illustration

Usually, brand guidelines are for everyone, while design guidelines are the subset for designers. It varies (particularly by geography and size of organisation), but usually "brand guidelines" are the broad umbrella including: "Vision" or "Mission statement" etc etc Tone of voice and writing style guidelines Logo files and usage guidelines (e.g. white ...

I don't know the style it's called. I call it "2D flat art," with a retro 20s/30s texture feel for added texture. The approach uses a limited color palette. The basic way to create this art is to use a darker color of the object's color as the shadow color. If the jacket is red, the shadow would be a darker red, with no gradients; hence, "flat". Flash, ...

Nowadays, you can use either tool to accomplish these types of graphics. Adobe Illustrator is primarily a vector-based program, it has some raster-only elements available, such as drop shadows or outer glows. Likewise, Adobe Photoshop now allows you to work with vector-based objects (called smart objects) within the traditionally raster-based program. It ...

There are two possible solutions that immediately spring to mind. 1. When you apply a graphic style to a clip group (or a layer), the styles may appear BENEATH its contents - and the effect is therefore entirely hidden. You can re-order the contents/effects so that your graphic style is applied on top - do this via the appearence panel. Here's an example; ...

The colours are not soft as such, though they are pastels; but the shadows are simply a darker version of the "original", and there are careful use of highlights. Consider the clothes: The outlines are trad cartoon-black. If you removed the shadows and kept the black outlines, you would have old-school-western donald-duck-style cartoon. Really old Donald ...

Forgetting entirely about the lettering for a moment, and just sticking to the photography, this picture represents what you would get with litho film. An extreme contrast film, litho (usually ortho litho these days, or orthochromatic lithography film, which can be used under relatively bright red safe lights) is characterized by large blocks of tone that ...

'Retro 60s animation' and 'Retro 50s animation' go a long way.

Most all identities evolve over time. There should be some shared DNA, but trends and styles come and go and brand identities tend to follow along.

You are definitely challenging the norms with your suggestion, but if there is nothing explicit about the design style that goes against the assignment, there should be no reason to avoid it. You may (or definitely will!) stand out if your collage is very minimal, which is good as long as you're standing out for the right reason. Collages tend to have 0% ...

Those examples are type ornaments or electrotype ornaments and are often called dingbats. But they are derived from 19th century woodcut illustrations. So, the style is generic dingbats and letterpress ornaments. Electrotyping is a depositional process, so the inverse of etching or engraving (because they were used in-line on a letterpess). However, they ...

It's mostly engraving. The best way to emulate is to create your own engravings, though that is a particular skill few of us have experience with. The hallmark of the style is that it's pure black and white and all shading it done via pattern...typically patterns of differently spaced lines that follow the contours of the 3D object being illustrated. ...

Identification - It can fall under: Line Art Scratchboard Hatching Something like this I would personally do-it manually with a 0.05 pen. If you can't try some simple Photoshop crosshatch brushed like this one

Absolutely! Whether or not it should is a different topic, but just look at the battle between 'flat' design and the skeuomorphic designs of the early 00s. http://www.flatvsrealism.com/ We're actually living in a fascinating time for this topic, as the 'flat' design trend is becoming so overwhelming that we're seeing brands that haven't updated their style ...

This decision should be made on a site to site basis, depending on the situation. However, by using a mobile-first (that is, in order, not in importance) design, this decision can be made more easily. The easiest way to get the best results is to start with the essentials. By beginning with the smallest screen size that we plan to support, we know we’re ...

you can use both Photoshop as well as illustrator to draw this object but in Photoshop its some how difficult to arrange some vectors. so i suggest to use Illustrator for this object.

This isn't so much an illustrative technique so much as it is a rendering one. These are likely Illustrator vector graphics that have had textures applied after the fact. Creative Bloq has a nice tutorial on adding textures to vector illustrations.

I have used these style guide templatesbased on the style tiles concept & template. They're good for the early stages when you're exploring styles, not so much for specifications for when you're actually building the product.

what worked for me is this: with nothing selected, click the style. go to Appearance, do the mods you need, drag the little preview icon left of the name to the styles window, overwriting the previous style. in order to overwrite a style, hold Ctrl+alt and drop it on top of the old one. all previously styled objects adopt the new style. best of luck to ...

You should look into underground comix (yes, with an x). It's a bit strange that they'd name-check Beavis and Butthead or reference 90s comics, when there's a clear influence from an older print tradition. R. Crumb is the obviously place to start. Though there's a lot of variety in the genre, the commonality tends to a less polished adaptation of older pen ...

I'm not sure if this "style" has any specific name — it's really just a simple Photoshop / GIMP / etc. effect. Here, let me recreate the image in the GIMP for you: I'll start with the Newgrounds logo, scaled to 640 pixels wide to match your example image (click to enlarge): Next, I add some multiplicative noise by creating a new layer, filling it ...
