Splatter Effects: Design Inspiration and Tutorial

Splatters can be used in web and graphic design to create interesting effects that grab your attention. In the past, we’ve seen artists who have based their careers on splatter techniques ( thanks, Jackson Pollock!). Luckily, we don’t have to make as much of a mess since we have Adobe Photoshop. With that software, we have all the accessories we need to create our own splatter effects. We can even play with the drips and drops in Photoshop, allowing us as many canvases as we need. In this post, we’ll showcase many examples from a variety of different types of design. One of the easiest ways to use this type of effect in your work is to take advantage of the Photoshop brushes that are readily available. See Splatter Brushes for Photoshop and even Splatter Vectors for Illustrator. Before we get started looking at designs that utilize splatter effects, we’ll list out a few of our favorite places to download already made brushes and a helpful video tutorial:
