I regularly run into the need for custom swirls, curls, and streaks. As a graphic designer or web designer you can never have too many brushes for projects where you want to add accents and flourishes to a design so that it stands out. This collection focuses on brushes for Photoshop and even some for Illustrator for those designs that call for rasterized images. Do you have your own collection you can share? Any favorites you’d want included?

How do you use swirls and streaks in your design projects? The aesthetic impact of these brush styles can help you add a range of tones to a design. From a grunge website, feminine-style posters, or a swirled typography decoration, for a wedding invitation design, swirls and streak tools can help you create a unique piece of visual communication for your next project.
