Night Owl Society Logo.
One common denominator found in most Independent creatives (Freelancers) is their penchant for burning the midnight oil. Our creative juices tend to flow best under the shroud of darkness. We thrive in the quiet of night, we are night owls.
This unique demographic has inspired me to create the Night Owl Society.
The Night Owl Society manifesto sums up the personality and creative drive of it’s members. And was masterfully written by my good friend Maria Gudaitis.
“Our nocturnal tribe soars at midnight. We are the night owls – whose pixels, presses, polygons and projects flourish best under obsidian skies.”
If you’re passionate about your work, and your ideas fly best during the hours others tend to sleep than a membership eagerly awaits you.

This texture set is titled “Craptacular” and includes “10″ real-world surface textures.

It also includes a layered PSD file (10×13 inches @ 315ppi) and a bitmap tiff file (10×13 inches @ 300ppi).

The uses for these creative resources are only limited to your imagination.

Night Owl Society members get the following content via immediate download and by additional content listed below that will be shipped to you directly:
- Night Owl Membership Certificate
This framable certificate comes as a high-res PDF file. Simply print it out and sign it.
- VBT Sketch Pad
Why am I sending you a sketch pad? Because analog drawing improves digital building and design. It’s that simple. These sketch pads were printed by Copycraft.com and are branded with the title of my book Vector Basic Training.
- One PaperMate™ Flair Pen (Black)
My favorite pen to draw with is the PaperMate™ Flair pen. These pens are nice and juicy and don’t bleed too much making them ideal for doodling IMO.

Glossy Off-set printed design sample sheets.

Because my closet still has boxes full of Keyboard Characters I’m including a set in the creative pack. They’re fun colorful characters to infest your work area with inspiration.
