Each SnapVillage reviewer goes through many hundreds of images daily, but we still get excited when we come upon a great image. We’re always on the lookout for good content that is commercially appealing, technically strong, and conceptually engaging. But we’re also a pretty diverse group here and can’t help but be moved by all kinds of interesting imagery.  Now that we’re into the New Year, let’s look for a moment by presenting Snapvillage Reviewer Favorites ’08.  These are highlighted selections from some members of our image review team.

We look forward to seeing more great images in ’09!

Title:  “Steel clamp against plain background”
Contributor: scargut

Why we like it: Sometimes a clamp is just a clamp. Scargut puts it best in the description:

“I know it’s just a clamp and all… but this is one wicked-cool, highly polished, steel clamp.”

Totally true. Nice seemingly simple vector with good shading and texture. The highlights really do make this clamp shiny and metallic.

As in Scargut’s illustration, sometimes a simple subject that is well executed can really make a vector stand-out. For best results – try keeping your illustrations clean and polished. Making them “wicked-cool” doesn’t hurt either.  😉

What do you think?
