The Force is strong (and free) with these cute, long shadow flat design icons of famous Star Wars characters…
Portuguese creative writer and graphic designer Filipe Carvalho has produced this charming collection of minimalist long shadow flat design icons based around the Star Wars original trilogy movies. All of our favourite characters are colourfully featured – including Darth Vader, Boba Fett, C-3PO, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, R2D2, Yoda and an Imperial Stormtrooper. (The bodyless R2D2 does kind of remind us of a Dalek though.) We’re very pleased to report that The Phantom Menace’s Darth Vader Jnr. and Jar Jar Binks are both absent from the list.
Carvalho used Adobe Photoshop CS and Adobe Illustrator CS to create this slick project.
“Obviously, I’m a Star Wars fan, so I wanted to pay a tribute to something I really love,” says Filipe Carvalho on his Behance page. “Flat design, with its simple visual approach, enabled the non-professional-art-director-me to produce some illustration work, so, this was my chance to give something back to the saga. Hope you like it.”
May The Thanks Be With You
Carvalho needn’t have worried about the reaction to his latest piece of work though, as these Star Wars flat designs are already a hit with the Behance community at large.
