9 Wickedly Free Heraldry Vectors

posted by Matt Ward on Sep 9, 2009.

I love heraldry vectors. I like them even more when they’re free, and I’m sure you do too. As such, I have compiled this collection of 9 heraldry vectors for you to check out and download!

One of the current design trends that I absolutely love is the use of heraldry. It probably has something to do with my life-long love of fantasy, and the whole connection to Medieval Lords and Ladies and knights in shinning armour. Some of the novels that I read actually go into quite a bit of detail about coats of arms and such.

So, today, I am bringing you 9 wicked and free heraldry vectors (or collections of vectors). I collected these from a number of of the web’s greatest sources for free vectors, and they come in a variety of different styles.

Please forgive a little shameless self promotion on that last one! Also for vectors 7 and 8, I could not find an actual artist to credit, but I thought they were brilliant pieces and wanted to share them here. If anyone knows who the artists are, please let me know so that I can give them proper credit! I would also recommend using these two mostly as a reference. Open them up, tear them apart and see what you can learn for creating your own heraldry designs! If you want to use these in your designs, please consider doing a bit more research and getting in touch with the artist directly.

Which brings me to another point. Please do respect the various licenses under which these vectors are released. The respective artists obviously put a lot of work into making them, and the fact that they are giving them away at all is very noble!

So enjoy these. Salivate over their awesomeness, take the time to learn a thing or two, and above all, be sure to respect the wishes of the respective artists and give credit where credit is due!

Which ones are your favorites (no need to say number 9, but I’ll smile if you do)? Do you know of any other awesome heraldry freebies?
