Vectorheart is an aesthetic that emerged in the late 90s but faded in the mid 2000s. Videogames like WipeOut and Ace Combat used this aesthetic for their menus, along with some album covers and other PS1 games.As a fact, I can't get AI Image Generator to work with this aesthetic, they always make just a plain heart.There seems to be little discussion for this so this is your chance to discuss the vectorheart aesthetic and post your unknown vectorheart artwork.
it wasn't really a word or an explicit category...
>>441717There's been plenty of discussion about it on the late 90s and mid-00s threads you stupid newfag, lurk moar
>>441717>WipeOutBased.I loved the graphic design elements in WipeOut games and I have seriously no idea why this style faded into oblivion.So simple, pure, cool, and energetic.Designers Republic did a great job with it.
>>441760The vast majority of which is a small handful of retards defending the idea that it's a well defined term and established movement, against everyone else recognizing it as the contrived wannabe hipster trend mongering that it is and laughing.Now AI is laughing at you too.
>>441959>brings up AI out of nowhereWhen did AI fanboys become as obnoxious as furfags
>>442054t. illiterate chucklefuck waste of oxygenAnd I quote from the OP->441717>..."As a fact, I can't get AI Image Generator to work with this aesthetic, they always make just a plain heart."
>>442070>expecting a carifag zoomer to actually readyou're being too generous anon
too niche for AI, even "Designer's Republic" wouldn't work. they're also notoriously bad with text due to byte pair encoding."Swiss modernism" might, y2k shit was basically a sci-fi take on that design movement. you could also try finetuning stable diffusion on wipEout logos or something and see what happens; these are apparently from the weaker ruDALLE
>>442106Can't you just train a LoRA on a specific subset of logos to draw inspiration from instead like a real human being would. Instead of just telling it "uhh yeah can i get <extremely niche thing computer doesnt know about>"?
>>442098AI will replace you too, anon.
>>441957>no idea why this style faded into oblivion.because it's 20 fucking years old.because you had to actually be able to create something that required a computer and not your fucking phone.
>>441717I wouldn't expect AI Image Generators to know what Vectorheart is, even a google image search brings up vector pictures of hearts.If you're so keen on it, just train a Lora on some source material yourself, it could be interesting.Also, I don't think that it has faded into oblivion like other users have said, I went on the Cari Institute website to take a look at what their Vectorheart gallery was like and found a page for Neo-Vectorheart on my way there. I can see this kind of influence on modern works even though Y2K and Metalheart which I believe to be adjacent movements probably have been a lot more influential in the last few years.
>>442575Nah, it'll only purge the people who are in it for the money. People who like to make stuff will always make stuff regardless of technology. Carpenters still exist even if mass-produced Ikea cardboard shit has mostly replaced them. Some people like to learn old ways of doing stuff even if there are newer technologies that could make the efforts either minimal or nonexistent, simply because it's fun to do so. People still draw even though Stable Diffusion is a thing, people will animate even when txt2vid is a thing, true /g/entoomen will program for fun even if AI overtakes the mainstream programming jobs, and /gd/ anon will keep on designing shit even if AI arrives.
>>442600>because it's 20 fucking years old.And it's still the most modern looking and groundbreaking style ever created, to me it's completely timeless.Show me a style which you deem to be more modern, cool and stylish in any way.
>>441717TDR got me into graphic design, I like those early 2000's depiction of futuristic design. They're also big in creating covers for Electronic artist, they have a good catalogue of designs for Warp Records.
>>442769I agree it looks timeless been looking at them for like 10+ years and still looks fresh>>442804>>442805
>>442769This.It's still the best shut, to this day. Maybe tekwear and other Japanese styles are like an echo of it
also why the fuck did middle aged men go with time lesbians, when story and characters were there weakest link, while being great at worldbuilding and music score /tangent
>>441717There is a game that keeps entirely to this aesthetic, called SYNTHETIK.
>>443223Nice one.>>443217Thanks anon, I haven't even heard about this game yet, playing it right now, and it's pretty cool!
>>443224My pleasure bro, I think the vectorheart look is the most underrated and under-utilized thing ever.
>>441717https://www.webdesignmuseum.org/gallery/plaxtika-v-02-2001This site has lots and lots of this exact style.
>>441717you make up that name yourself?
>>442818It WAS a homage to Japanese style. Some of us have been on the internet since the 90s. we saw it come and go.
>>443742Can you show us some of that Japanese material that inspired it?
Anyone know of good tutorials on how to make vectorheart?
>>441717this image immediately reminded me a LOT of the bloodsport collection in csgohonestly, a lot of csgo skins would fall under this aesthetic, like the asiimov or even the cyrex collection (though the last one might be pushing it a bit too far)
Someone linked a simple cinema 4d tutorial for vector art and I lost that tab
>>444823That's why you use bookmarks and not tabs you fucking retard
>>444842it was really simple too, i lost it on my phone which for some reason has a close all tabs button
>>444823anyone happen to have the link?
Vectorheart bros... were we really Metalheart all along?source: Metalheart by Andres Lindholmseveral more similar examples were in the book as well
>>444823>>445886>>446473in searching for Metalheart as mentioned by the above anon, I came across this channel that has some Cinema 4D tutorials for that. https://www.youtube.com/@skyboxsh/videos
>>442106Would these flags count as a derivative style to Vectorheart?
>>446834Not sure. I don't know where these are from, but Japanese prefecture flags are very similar, and a lot of them date back to the 50s-60s, way before vectorheart was a thing. They certainly share an influence with vectorheart, that's for sure, but to say these are a derivative of it, I just don't know.

>>442805>>442905>>443223this is so good. This whole style is too good
>>442804heyo man do you have this book to download? would love to see the full thing. if not then just its name would be nice :)
>>442807>>442804>>442805>>442806>>442807 actually if it isnt too much effort could you id all of these? it would make my day :)))
>>447933TDR is The Designers Republic. The other Anon was posting a catalogue of their works turned to a page with the graphics they made for Pop Will Eat Itself.They've had quite a few high profile client brands, so it's not too hard to find work done by them with a simple google search.
Dmas3.com had nice artworks.
Does this website fit in here?https://acko.net/
>>442769I want a phone with this kind of UI style
>>442807>>442804>A to Z of The Designers Republic is expensive as fuckwell fuck me, i guess, that sucks
>>443217great game too, I've only beaten it twice but die instantly on loop
Early deviant art was 80% this stuff, before the furries, fan artists and holiday photographers took over.There were many truly inspired vector web pages too
>>446860here's another inspiration
>>442806Hah I didn't know Liger was a fan. He learned from the best.
a demo dropped earlier this month in the style of some of The Designers Republic's works, thought it'd fit right in here with how vector based it is.https://sagamusix.de/other/TRBL-Hallmackenreuther/demo/
>>449887very cool, but it feels sacreligious to have a demoscene program in your browser
I didn't come on this board for like 4 years and the meme of y2k nostaligia and 90s rave aesthetics were a complete joke.Now this board is populated by cringe tik tok zoomers
