Polish patterns – Vytynank

Live in Poland and do not notice the traditional Polish patterns around is almost impossible, especially attending touristic point.
You can find almost everything like cups, bags, caps, cups, pins, t-shirts and hundreds of gadgets painted with this beautiful and colorful patterns.

This folk art has a name (not easy to pronounce I may say):
Vytynanky – Wycinanki

The Polish patterns became popular folk craft in the mid-1800s. Originally it was made with barks of trees and colorful leather. The designs and colors vary from region to region and can also be monochrome those of “Kurpie“.

Its geometric shapes, colors, symmetry and the mirror effect makes this art impossible to do not be noticed.
It can be made with many kinds of materials and techniques, including, as I did myself, in vector art.

This is one of many Polish symbols helping spread the local history, traditions and culture around the world.


Kurpie style:

wycinanki Kurpie

Portuguese :

Viver na Polônia e não notar as tradicionais pinturas coloridas, que sempre estampa quase todos os produtos vendidos para turistas é quase impossível.
Porém não é para menos, é uma forma de arte muito tradicional, folclórica e rica.

O que mais me chama atenção são as formas geométricas, muitas cores, simetria e a natureza espelhada dos desenhos.

A arte chamada de “wycinanki” tornou-se popular na Polônia em meados da década de 1800. Originalmente era feita com cascas de arvores e couro colorido. Os desenhos e cores variam de região para região podendo ser também monocromáticos como os de “Kurpie“.

Pode ser feito com diversas técnicas e materiais, inclusive como eu fiz na forma de vetor arte.

Esse é mais um símbolo polonês que ajuda a difundir a história local e as suas tradições.








Vector Art

Vector Art.

I decided to talk a bit about an interesting style that can be very useful and helpful when it comes to printing big formats, vector art.

In this case, my client needed something with Brazilian themes and to print it over 12 meters high.

He gave me some pictures in a very low resolution that wouldn’t be enough for such big impression.
Finding a similar image and in a high resolution was very complicated also very expensive. So, why not illustrate that picture?
I could make it very real or add new elements also a new artistic style!

No doubts about that this technique can be time-consuming and requires a little patience but I particularly like the final results.

Few words a bit about this illustration, it was made in Adobe Illustrator. I started with the original photo and the first lines are the broad contours, after having defined the contours for the lights and shadows, without colors, contours only.

With whole picture drawn with lights and shadows. I moved the original image out of the new lines but close enough to start coloring the inside using the original one as parameter.

At this point I started adding my style and colors changes. Giving a new look and a different background.


This kind of art that doesn’t require much technical knowledge much less deep illustration skills. It only requires some creativity and basic illustrating software skills (Adobe Illustrator).

There are no limits on what can be created in vector art. It can be simple traces, a realistic image, 3D, traced and etc…

A two-color logo is ideal, but there are also good four colors logos. Just remember, your logo will be reproduced on lots of different types of promotional materials, so make sure that it is easily recognizable in full color or black and white.
