Combine the binary code font shapes
You don't have to use just a single item, you can use them in combination so use A B C all together to create ever more complex and unique graphics. They can be blended either using blending modes such as difference and lighten and overlay; you can also add them with transforms and effects added (as smart filters); or just use different combinations of position (use layer comps feature if using Photoshop)
Binary code font shapes - EPS decorative vectors install
The EPS decorative Vector graphics can be loaded into many tools via the open command as well as place command of many applications. The EPS files can be set to any size. Once loaded into the application you can re-size them (if Photoshop as they are loaded as smart objects) and you can also add effects and fills and much more.
If you are using Illustrator then you can also open the files and modify the artwork in 1000s of ways and create new EPS files or perhaps save the items to PDF and SVG and other formats.
How did you create them ?
They were created using a symbol plugin tool created by graphicxtras (symbol headlines) and the tool was used to create rows of random 0 and 1 graphics in a variety of styles. After that, various tweaks were made to the vector graphics and these were then exported to Fontlab and they were then saved as a TTF as well as EPS vector files.
Apply the binary code font shapes
They are applied as any typeface, by typing A B C D etc A document is included with the set showing the relationship between the keyboard characters and the actual images (PDF document).
If this is an issue, then as mentioned, the set also contains the exactly same in eps and they can be loaded via the open menu command as well as displayed by browser tools (you can find more about those via google).
How they are actually applied will vary from app to another app and what you can do with the graphics will vary depending on the app as well.
You can find more about the vectors via our graphicxtras tutorials on youtube. You can see how to install them, how to use them, warp them, use them in Microsoft Word, how to blend, how to combine with others, export them, use visual effects and more.
If you have any questions about the set, please contact us and I will try and create a video or two on the subject.
