Plato made the world believe that shadows are a metaphor for the illusory and wicked aspects of life, which we must eradicate in order to illuminate the truth and inherent goodness of existence. And yet we forget that the darkness they cast evidences the light – palpable proof without which we might not appreciate or even notice the radiance itself. The beauty of shadows was brought to light by unique Japanese aesthetics, which make use of dark shadows against light shadows to create a harmonious composition pleasing to the senses. And thus it has been rightly said: Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.
Exploiting the same aesthetics and creating a beautiful symphony of lights and shadows for a minimal yet impactful presentation, Pixel Buddha has curated this stationery shadow mockup set. Immensely useful for publishers, photographers and graphic artists, the mockups facilitate a powerful showcasing of printed production without drawing any particular attention to the background. Verdura comes as a set of 2 free stationery mockup scenes that utilize the shadows of windows – such as the French classic jalousie – to bring a romantic tranquility to your projects. The PSD format files can be easily and swiftly edited by virtue of the neatly organized layers using smart objects. The high resolution of 300 dpi and dimensions of 4500 x 3000 px make sure that the emphasis is effectively set on the design in question, thus creating a harmonious composition where your artwork stands out like never before.
